Novak Djokovic succumbed to a shoulder injury as his US title defence came to an end against Stan Wawrinka.

Meanwhile, Johanna Konta knocked out the third seed to reach a third successive grand slam quarter-final and her first in New York.

Here, PA looks back at day seven and forward to day eight at the US Open.

Madison Keys bowed out but not before unleashing this forehand rocket against Elina Svitolina.

Stat of the day

Konta is the first British woman since Jo Durie in 1983 to reach the quarter-finals at Flushing Meadows.

Shock of the day

Djokovic’s defeat was a surprise, but he has been carrying an injury. The shock came when women’s second seed Ashleigh Barty fell by the wayside, going down in straight sets to an inspired Qiang Wang of China.

Quote of the day

“Yesterday I did my laundry at a laundromat in Brooklyn. I’m very special when it comes to laundry” – Grigor Dimitrov keeps it real

Daniil Medvedev is still rubbing the Flushing Meadows crowd up the wrong way.
