Roger Federer overpowers Nick Kyrgios to reach second week of US Open

Kyrgios, who is no stranger to hitting hot shots, was so impressed with Federer's shot that he said he would be Instagramming it.

"It was a 'Serena scream.' I don't try to do it".

Federer's emphatic victory set up a last-16 meeting with another Australian, unseeded journeyman John Millman, on Monday for a place in the quarter-finals. "As you're hitting it, you're like, 'Oh, I can just shove it down the line and just flat.' That's what happened today". "I'm going to do it the best I can", she added. Kyrgios went on to win; Lahyani was chastised by the US Tennis Association for breaching "protocol" but allowed to continue officiating at the tournament. "I wanted to be here right until the end and put myself in contention of winning my first major".

'In my career, I don't think I have - I have been around for about four years now.

No. 30 seed Carla Suarez Navarro (who beat Garcia) reached her maiden US Open fourth round; Cibulkova, who dropped the first set against Kerber, demolished the Wimbledon champion in the next two frames, as Kerber continues to struggle holding serve deep into matches. Turned out Kyrgios would not muster another break chance.

Kanepi's take on Wiliams' serve?

The man, who has made sure fans got their money's worth over the years with his lobs, tweeners and SABRs among other awe-inspiring shots, himself acknowledged that the down-the-line victor was a "special shot". Those losses weren't great for me, either.

"I think if he breaks there he probably runs away and wins that first set", Federer said. "I'm very happy to have won through in three..."

"For a shot like this to happen in a practice, you will be running into a fence and you will hit it into the net", he said.

The wonder shot was the talk of the day, but the night belonged to 2014 champion Marin Cilic and 19-year-old Australian Alex de Minaur, who battled for four hours on Louis Armstrong Stadium before Cilic pulled off a 4-6, 3-6, 6-3, 6-4, 7-5 victory.

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

At night, 13-time major champion Novak Djokovic easily beat No. 26 Richard Gasquet 6-2, 6-3, 6-3 in Ashe, while 2014 U.S. Open title victor Marin Cilic met 19-year-old Alex de Minaur in Armstrong in the day's last match. I think there is a lot more things to explore.

Kerber's defeat followed the early exits of world number one Simona Halep and No. 2 Caroline Wozniacki - who were both also seeking a second Grand Slam title of the year.

He gets two days' rest before taking on No. 9 Dominic Thiem for a semifinal berth in what will be rematch of this year's French Open final, which Nadal won in straight sets. "Obviously I want to achieve more in the sport".

Osaka, 20, was almost flawless, making just three unforced errors in the rout to reach the U.S. Open round of 16 for the first time in three tries.
