John Millman Just Knocked Off Roger Federer At The US Open
Roger Federer will face Nick Kyrgios
04 September, 2018, 10:25
That was the first time in tournament history that the U.S. Open created an extreme heat policy for men's matches - players can opt for a 10-minute break between the third and fourth sets - similar to what's standard on the women's tour, when there can be a delay between the second and third sets. He's been a hero of mine.
This, however, dwarfed it, a win over arguably the greatest of all time to reach his first Grand Slam quarterfinal against a decidedly pro-Federer crowd.
Millman said the victory had yet to sink in. "Today he was definitely not at his best but I'll take it".
Second seed Federer, who had not dropped a set in his first three matches in NY, had 77 unforced errors and 10 double faults and landed just 49 per cent of his first serves.
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 Monday: Djokovic is now 5-0 against Sousa, taking all 14 sets they've played against each other.
Millman, ranked 55, could not be less like his compatriot Kyrgios.
Millman had trained with Federer at his Swiss base prior to Wimbledon, an experience that certainly seemed to calm his nerves.
Keys, who has made at least the quarterfinals in three of the four Grand Slams this year, fired six aces and had no double faults to dispatch Cibulkova in short order. "It was very hot on the court even though it doesn't look too hot it's hit me". He's got an aura about him.
"But I have never been a fan of playing to anyone's reputation". He was up a break in the second set, before his serve began to betray him.
But Millman's fighting qualities shone through again when he immediately broke back, as the fourth set went back on serve and proceeded to another tie-breaker, which he won 7-3.
Millman confessed to being in "disbelief" while he acknowledged that the second seed was well below par, but he was delighted with the fight he showed to turn the contest on its head, having been a set and a break down. It's the first time in Federer's career that he has lost to a man ranked outside the top 50 at Flushing Meadows.
Others say the USA risks driving Pakistan further into the orbit of China, which is investing heavily in the country. That agenda includes using terrorists to shape the post-war future in Afghanistan - a future they wish to dominate.
The draw was also kind on German champions Bayern Munich, although they will meet two great European names in Benfica and Ajax. And I have been invited before in the friendly match against Uganda in uyo by late Stephen Okechukwu keshi.
Federer knows Millman well, because they practiced with each other ahead of the grass-court portion of this season. Two seeded men lost in the afternoon to unseeded opponents: No. 4 Alexander Zverev and No. 17 Lucas Pouille.
