NEW YORK (AP) - Roger Federer has beaten Robin Soderling at the U.S. Open to reach a 22nd consecutive Grand Slam semifinal.

Federer improved to 12-0 against the 12th-seeded Soderling by winning 6-0, 6-3, 6-7 (6), 7-6 (6) Wednesday night.

Federer has won 39 consecutive matches at the American Grand Slam tournament, where he is trying to become the first man since Bill Tilden in the 1920s to win six titles in a row.

In Saturday's semifinals, Federer will play No. 4 Novak Djokovic. Federer beat Djokovic in the 2007 final and 2008 semifinals at Flushing Meadows.

Federer last failed to reach the semifinals at a major tournament when he lost in the third round of the 2004 French Open. No other man ever had a Grand Slam semifinal streak longer than 10.
