In U.S. Open Upset, Roger Federer ‘Couldn’t Get Air’

Nadal will be glad of a rest day before tomorrow’s quarter-final against Thiem after spending more than seven hours on court against two tough opponents

So what's his deal anyway?

The heat, though, is much tougher on Djokovic, who showed the same blank expression, rosy cheeks, and sweat-soaked shirt as during his first-round match last week.

"Roger had it on a string, he was manipulating me around the court".

There was no surrender - he wrestled with John Millman through two tie-breaks - but in the end Roger Federer simply ran out of energy and ideas. "I love his intensity".

The Swiss ace said he just wanted to forget the match against Millman as soon as possible.

Said Millman: "Roger's a hero of mine".

"But now I'll try to stop him, so we'll see how it goes". I really like his team.

"I'm probably in a little bit of disbelief". The stat itself shouldn't surprise anyone. He has zero career titles and hardly a name invoked as a threat at even lower-level events.

Djokovic is the odds-on favorite to win the US Open after winning Wimbledon, a task made easier by Millman clearing Federer out of his way.

Dell Technologies Championship: Justin Rose leads crowded field at 6 under
Along with Hatton and Rose (67) tied for the lead at 10-under 132, Tommy Fleetwood of England had a 65 and was two shots behind. Four Americans, Keegan Bradley , Beau Hossler , Gary Woodland and Chris Kirk , share fourth place at 4 under.

Roger Federer said he was "happy the match was over" after playing in "uncomfortable" conditions during his shock fourth round US Open defeat.

This graphic says it all, no? "I've always fought the fight out and that's what it's all about, revving myself up".

"I thought she played really well. That's been a constant with me ever since I played the game, because, if you do that, you start behind the eight ball straight away".

Millman, in the last 16 of a Grand Slam for the first time, admitted to feeling like "a deer in the headlights" in the first set, but he rose to the occasion on the 23 000-seat Arthur Ashe Stadium court. A step slow, no defiance, maybe time has finally caught up with this great champion. The first obvious signs of trouble for Federer came far earlier, in the second game of the second set. Millman knew that was the turning point. "Let's hope for a few more".

"I would never have forgiven myself if I had lost that match", said a tearful Osaka. Yeah, look, I think a lot of people back home are incredibly proud.

And all this after Millman feared his career was over following two shoulder surgeries and then a groin operation past year.

The Aussie overcame right shoulder surgery that forced him to miss 11 months, from May 2013 to April 2014, and groin surgery that made him sit out four months at the start of the 2017 season.

Sharapova collected the trophy in NY at age 19 in 2006 and owns a total of five Grand Slam titles, but the Russian was far shakier than Suarez Navarro, who has never made it to the quarterfinals of a major. He said it was hard because the field is so deep that even a minor health setback is a major blow.
