Fourth seed David Ferrer led defending US Open champion Novak Djokovic 5-2 in the first set of their semi-final encounter on Saturday before play was suspended due to a severe weather system expected to hit the New York area.

Battling tricky conditions, Ferrer performed better in the opening stages. The second-seeded Djokovic served with the wind in the first service game and came to net three times, losing all three points. Ferrer broke for a 1-0 lead by smartly playing a backhand lob for a winner. He dictated a number of points with his most reliable weapon, the forehand, to give himself a chance to serve for the set before tournament officials called off the match and evacuated Arthur Ashe Stadium.

The semi-final is scheduled to resume at 11 a.m. local time on Sunday. The winner will advance to play No. 3 seed Andy Murray for the title. The final has been moved to Monday for the fifth straight year and will be played at 10 p.m. CEST/4 p.m. EST.
