Federer makes 76 unforced errors in US Open defeat

Federer makes 76 unforced errors in US Open defeat

Things got tougher in the second as a sluggish Djokovic laboured before again clinching the set with a break. If anyone else is doing those shots against me, I'm probably not too happy.

"I hit with him also a couple of times between days at the Australian Open". "Sometimes, you just have to survive".

He will next face either No. 7 seed Marin Cilic - who beat him in the 2014 U.S. Open final - or No. 10 David Goffin. "I have prayed for that".

Next up for Keys, who was routed by Sloane Stephens in last year's final, is the victor of the evening clash between five-times Grand Slam champion Maria Sharapova and Spanish 30th seed Carla Suarez Navarro.

Lesia Tsurenko reached her first Grand Slam quarterfinal by outlasting teenager Marketa Vondrousova 6-7 (3), 7-5, 6-2 after feeling ill earlier in the match.

Nishikori missed the US Open past year because of a right wrist injury. But he somehow clawed his way back to win 3-6 7-5 7-6 (8/6) 7-6 (7/3).

Since then, nine Australians - including Nick Kyrgios only two days ago, Mark Philippoussis in the 2003 Wimbledon final and Lleyton Hewitt seven times - had fallen prey to Federer in 20 straight grand slam matches over nearly 20 years.

Teddy Bridgewater Reportedly Had Crazy End To Tenure With Jets
Bridgewater arguably outplayed Darnold this summer, going 28 of 38 for 316 yards, two TDs and one interception. The Saints appear to have made a decision to upgrade at backup quarterback behind Drew Brees this year.

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

Roger Federer says he has enormous respect for John Millman ahead of their US Open fourth-round clash at Flushing Meadows after the pair trained together in the lead-up to the grass-court season.

The final set saw them exchange one break each as it again went to a tiebreaker, but this time the Aussie reeled off four straight points as Federer double-faulted twice in succession to earn five match points, claiming a stunning upset victory at the third attempt.

Sousa, who totaled 21 winners to 28 unforced errors, has never taken a set off Djokovic in five career head-to-heads. The 20-year-old Osaka was already the first Japanese woman to get to the fourth round in NY since 2004.

In the women's draw, Madison Keys eased into the quarter-finals with a 6-1, 6-3 victory over Slovakia's Dominika Cibulkova.

Sharapova won the 2006 title in NY, but she's now lost in the fourth round in her past three appearances.
