Porto said ESPN during his on-court interview,

I played my best match of the tournament.

He added,

I can’t believe I will play in the semi-finals against after all my injuries, after all my surgeries. Especially to play here in New York, my favorite tournament.

Porto is now one step closer to his second Grand Slam of his career. If he wins the semifinal against Nadal he will be facing either South African K. Anderson or P. Carreño Busta.
