Fifth seed Daniil Medvedev feared he wouldn’t be in a position to continue before reaching his first Grand Slam.
Medvedev, 23, acquired painkillers and taping on his thigh in the very first pair of some 7-6 (8-6) 6-3 3-6 6-1 triumph over the Swiss on Arthur Ashe Stadium.
The Russian will face Grigor Dimitrov or five-time winner Roger Federer to get a place in Sunday’s final.
«For sure, I am hoping to be prepared for the semis,» Medvedev said.
«Before the game I was feeling perfect. At the first set I think I pulled on my quadriceps. I had a big pain and thought I wasn’t likely to keep the match.
«At the fourth group, I started believing the painkiller and started moving better.»
Medvedev seized the early initiative by breaking Wawrinka in the match – but fought after getting strapping to his thigh during a health timeout after 4-3 ahead.
Three-time Grand Slam champion Wawrinka, who reached the last eight years after champion Novak Djokovic retired injured from their match on Monday, capitalised to level at 5-5, just for the stubborn Medvedev to shut a first pair tie-break out with three points.
With his movement advancing, Medvedev broke serve in the game to take the set – as the Swiss seed raced into a 3-0 lead, although the momentum dissipates once again in the next and rescued two break-points to eventually serve the group out.
But the Russian, after teasing the audience, booed in his fourth-round win over German Dominik Koepfer, rallied from the winner that was exhausting 2016 and broke serve twice to seal his new spot in Flushing Meadows.
After his $9,000 (#7,400) good to get an observable obscenity and unsportsmanlike behaviour in his third-round victory over Feliciano Lopez on Friday, Medvedev relished the boos that transpired once he arrived on courtroom and throughout his own post-match interview.
«So many people support me, so many folks don’t like me personally,» he told the crowd after his quarter-final win.
«I can only say, I strive to be myself men. I have to say, sorry men, and thank you!»
Great Federer is in activity against Dimitrov in the night session of Tuesday.
