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

Roger Federer

If anyone else is doing those shots against me, I'm probably not too happy.

"You don't get an opportunity to hit around the net post very often".

He will next face No. 7 seed Marin Cilic who ousted No. 10 seed David Goffin 7-6 (6), 6-2, 6-4. "I have prayed for that".

Millman, ranked 55 in the world, capitalised on some sloppy serving from an under-par Federer to secure victory with the time approaching 1am in NY and move into a quarter-final clash with another former US Open victor, Novak Djokovic.

7-6 (7/3) victory in his first Grand Slam fourth round match scuppered a blockbuster quarter-final between Federer and two-time victor Novak Djokovic.

He improved to 28-0 at the U.S. Open against opponents ranked outside the top 50, and here's another reason it wasn't all that surprising the way things went: Djokovic is now 5-0 against Sousa, taking all 14 sets they've played against each other. All the latest US Open news is in the round of 16 wrap! He was up a break in the second set, before his serve began to betray him. "He will not hand you the victory, you've got to earn it", said Djokovic, who will also have to contend again with sweltering heat and humidity that prompted organizers to reinstate the extreme heat policy that allows a 10-minute break in men's and women's matches that go beyond straight sets.

'I have so much respect for Roger and everything he's done for the game.

The German reached his lone Grand Slam quarterfinal at Wimbledon in 2012.

It was most striking during Lesia Tsurenko's 6-7 (3), 7-5, 6-2 win against Marketa Vondrousova, in which both players seemed affected by the temperature and mugginess.

The Aussie then held his cool to race to a 6-1 lead in the breaker before closing it out 7-3.

Millman, however, showed more fight in the second as Federer fought off seven break points in game two.

Keys will next meet number 30 seed Carla Suarez Navarro, who handed Maria Sharapova her first loss in a night match at Flushing Meadows with a 6-4, 6-3 defeat. With chants of, "Let's go, Roger, let's go", in the background, he blasted a blistering forehand victor that exploded past a lunging Federer to go up 8-7 then finished the set off with a big first serve.
