Roger Federer stuns crowd Nick Kyrgios with amazing shot around net post

Williams reached the quarterfinals at Flushing Meadows for a 10th consecutive appearance - she wasn't there past year because she gave birth to her daughter during the tournament - by picking her level up after a lull and using 18 aces to beat Kaia Kanepi of Estonia 6-0 4-6 6-3.

But Millman doesn't play for the money.

Kyrgios, 23, has time to mature and gain experience, especially playing in Grand Slam events. "I have barely done anything", he said. I think I was super, super OCD, and I tried to kind of wipe that away.

It wasn't so long ago that Millman feared his injury-plagued career was over. In a bold statement of intent, Kyrgios stole a move right out of the Federer playbook with an audacious SABR (sneak attack by Roger) on his opening return of the match.

Nick fought back to hold serve, but Federer went on to close out the match in straight sets, 6-4, 6-1, 7-5.

After dropping his serve to surrender the first set, Kyrgios was left muttering in his chair, and he was all but helpless in the face of a second-set master class from 20-time Grand Slam victor Federer. He's got an aura about him. On the men's side, I can not even think about returning John Isner (6ft 10in/2.08m) or Kevin Anderson (6ft 8ins/2.03m) or somebody like this.

- As temperatures soared to 38 degrees (100 farenheit), with the heat made worse by suffocating humidity, players and fans wilted.

Just when you think you've seen everything on the tennis court. "Obviously I want to achieve more in the sport". I realised it went too flat.

"I will relish the opportunity".

Once again involved in controversy, after his second round showing that required a much-debated pep talk from umpire Mohamed Layhani, Kyrgios promised he would compete all the way against the five-time US Open champion.

Kevin Anderson crushes Shapovalov at the US Open
A point in the match that many Shapovalov fans will point to wondering "what if?" occurred in the sixth game of the final set. The retractable roof on Arthur Ashe Stadium was closed because of light rain during the second set of defending U.S.

Zverev, the 21-year-old sensation, who has lifted titles in Munich, Madrid and Washington this year and reached finals in Miami and Rome, fell 6-7 (1/7), 6-4, 6-1, 6-3 to veteran compatriot Philippe Kohlschreiber.

"I'm very happy to have won, I'm happy it was three".

The world No 2, a five-time victor in NY, maintained his flawless progress through the draw with a 6-4 6-1 7-5 victory in one hour and 44 minutes.

Djokovic saved all five break points he faced to book a meeting with Joao Sousa of Portugal, a 7-6 (7/5), 4-6, 7-6 (7/4), 7-6 (7/5) victor over France's Lucas Pouille.

The unseeded Portuguese will play Novak Djokovic or Richard Gasquet in his maiden fourth-round appearance at a major. He's won five titles at the U.S Open, although the last arrived a decade ago.

Only third seed and defending champion Sloane Stephens remains among the top-four seeds.

His biggest chance of the match probably came at 3-3 in the first set.

Thiem prevented a rematch of last year's US Open final by eliminating 2017 runner-up and No 5 seed Kevin Anderson 7-5 6-2 7-6 (2).

Bertens has had an excellent season and defeated Simona Halep to win the title in Cincinnati two weeks ago.
