Federer makes incredible shot at US Open

Roger Federer

The result was that Federer raced to a 6-4, 6-1, 7-5 victory in just 104 minutes against a demoralised Kyrgios, who at one point could be heard shouting "I need to hire a coach".

"If he had broken in the sixth game [three break point] he would have run away with it and won the first set".

"On clay, I think it's one of the biggest challenges in sports to beat this guy or to compete with this guy", Thiem said.

But all that changed after the vital seventh game of the match.

Kerber, the 2016 US Open victor tying to become the third woman in the last 20 years to win both Wimbledon and the US Open in the same season, was bundled out by Slovakia's Dominika Cibulkova 3-6, 6-3, 6-3.

Kyrgios will depart the season's final grand slam provisionally ranked No.27 in the world, just 15 spots higher than inspired countryman John Millman.

The 37-year-old Swiss player admitted after the match that the shot was one of the best in his career. In comments to reporters after the match, the Australian referred to the shot as "almost unreal". "I was just happy to get through it".

This time, of course, Kyrgios received no sort of counsel during the match other than all the muttering, at various volumes, he directed at himself. But sometimes being unconventional can work against you the way it did for Nick Kyrgios on Saturday afternoon at the U.S. Open.

The No. 2-seeded Federer moved into the fourth round at Flushing Meadows for the 17th consecutive appearance. She then faced a break point, but Kanepi wasted that chance by sending a backhand wide.

The defending men's champion Rafael Nadal reached his fourth Grand Slam quarterfinal of the season, and 36th of his career, by getting past Nikoloz Basilashvili 6-3, 6-3, 6-7 (6), 6-4, while No. 11 John Isner of the USA made it that far at Flushing Meadows for the first time since 2011. "He loosened up straightaway after that".

For many, his visit to NY this year was his tennis career in a nutshell.

As per the rules governing the sport, it is not mandatory that the ball has to travel over the net for a shot to count. Kohlschreiber now meets 2014 runner-up Kei Nishikori, who got past No. 13 Diego Schwartzman 6-4, 6-4, 5-7, 6-1.

"To play fair and play tough", said Federer on Saturday when asked what he can offer to young players. All the pressure was off him.

Win that, and Federer could find himself in a quarterfinal against 13-time major title victor Novak Djokovic, who faced Richard Gasquet in the third round later Saturday (NZT Sunday). "When he gets in front, there's not much you can do". I think there is a lot more to be done and there is a lot more to be, I mean, explored.

He lost his first clash against Kyrgios in 2015, but now leads the youngster 3-1.
