US Open: Roger Federer beaten by John Millman in fourth-round shock

Roger Federer 'In New York you do things you shouldn't be doing'

John Millman pulled off one of the greatest upsets in US Open history as he dumped Roger Federer out in a dramatic four setter on Monday night in NY.

There was that sort of respite during No. 20 Naomi Osaka's 6-3, 2-6, 6-4 win against No. 26 Aryna Sabalenka, a matchup between two powerful players seeking a first Grand Slam quarterfinal appearance.

With the win, Keys improved to 5-0 lifetime against Cibulkova and becomes only the second woman, after Kerber, to reach the quarter-finals or better at three of the four grand slams this year.

"If you do that, I think you can get bogged down and you're in a bit of trouble", Millman had said. "I have so much respect for Roger and everything he's done for the game", he added. The feet weren't moving. "It was very hot on the court even though it doesn't look too hot it's hit me".

Incredibly, Federer then threw in six successive errors after winning the first point - including back-to-back double faults - and Millman converted his third match point to seal an extraordinary victory - his first against a top-10 opponent.

"I've got to control the controllable and the one thing I can control is the fight in me".

Millman was adamant he would not be intimidated by Federer, and perhaps was helped by having spent time practicing together a few months ago ahead of the grass-court portion of this season.

"That's a great one", Djokovic said after he finished chuckling.

After Samsung had introduced their Galaxy Note9 , it's time for Apple to unveil their latest iPhone models for 2018. An iOS developer was alerted to the mistake, and he shared all the details with the world on an Apple news blog.

Federer, indeed, did not play as well as he had in the opening three matches, when he didn't drop a set.

Meanwhile, it hasn't all been bad news for Federer, as he impressed fans with one of his best shots to date during his last match against Kyrgios, leaving the Aussie player absolutely gobsmacked.

Until Monday night, Federer had been 40-0 against opponents outside the Top 50 at the US Open, according to the official match report. Coming off his triumph at Wimbledon, he has reached the final eight at Flushing Meadows for the 11th time.

Nishikori will next face either seventh seed Marin Cilic, which will be a rematch of the 2014 final, or Belgian 10th seed David Goffin.

No. 14 seed Madison Keys remains in the hunt for her first Grand Slam title a year after making the US Open final.

Asked whether he thought during that time away about returning to the height of his powers, Djokovic replied: "I have imagined".

"I don't have any pressure, " said Nishikori, who was so crushed about missing the US Open past year that he couldn't even watch the tournament.
