Insane winner caps off Federer masterclass over Kyrgios

Millman spent several days training with Federer at the 20-times grand slam's Swiss base before Wimbledon and says he won't be overawed.

"I will definitely go to the prize money desk and collect my cheque". I think I can do a lot more.

Kyrgios made headlines earlier in the week when he was getting badly beaten early in his second-round match and chair umpire Mohamed Lahyani came down and gave him a odd pep talk.

But right from the outset, Federer showed his advanced pedigree and professionalism. And the 37-year-old still has some pizzazz, as well, hitting one of the great shots of his illustrious career in the third set when he chased down a drop shot at an extreme angle and hit it around the net for a victor. It ignited the Ashe crowd and even Kyrgios had to stop and applaud.

Five of the pair's previous six sets contested had gone to tiebreakers, but it was clear Federer was up for this one.

"The net is out further and the court is more narrow, so for a shot like this to happen in a practice, you will be running into a fence and you will hit it into the net".

"I definitely won't be thinking about those things".

"It was unbelievable", he said.

So for me that's a big thrill, probably one of the reasons also I'm still playing today. An ace on match point finished off the job.

'Terrorist motive' suspected in stabbing of American tourists in Amsterdam
Some train services in and out of the station were suspended during the incident and two platforms closed. Friday is one of the busiest days of the week for train travel as tourists arrive for the weekend.

Much has been made of the 23-year-old's career to date.

That included a dazzling Federer forehand from inches off the ground outside the tramlines that fund its way around the net post and had Kyrgios staring in awe.

"It was nearly unreal", said Kyrgios, who is no stranger to trick shots of his own.

Federer remained steady, and he forced Kyrgios to beat him - which was a very hard proposition as Kyrgios made 35 unforced errors.

Millman said: "I think he's the best that's played the game, in my opinion".

After the loss, Kyrgios was asked what he could learn from the example the 37-year-old had set throughout his career. After losing the first set, he sat there animatedly talking to his family and friends in their seats on the other side of the court.

Osaka committed just three unforced errors as she notched up her third successive straight sets win, dropping only seven games in total during her run to the second week of the hardcourt major.

Kyrgios had come out firing, but once Federer had saved four break points in the seventh game of the opening set the Australian was at a loss. It seemed to crack the mindset of the fragile Kyrgios, whose career is turning into more flash than substance.

While Federer is usually all business and Kyrgios the showman, the roles were reversed midway through the third set on Saturday when the Swiss produced a trick shot that left the Australian wide-eyed and open mouthed.
