David Ferrer has admitted that Novak Djokovic deserved to win their US Open semi-final clash.

"Every match is different," he is quoted as saying by Reuters. "Every day is different. Today Djokovic played better than me."

However, Ferrer added that he is pleased with his performance at the tournament.

"Of course, I am very positive," he said. "I reached the semi-final in a Grand Slam, my second time in a semi-final here at the US Open.

"I am very happy with myself and with my performance."
