  • Roger Federer 'In New York you do things you shouldn't be doing'

Looking slow and exhausted on a sweltering night in Arthur Ashe Stadium, Federer double-faulted 10 times, failed to convert a trio of set points and lost 3-6, 7-5, 7-6 (7), 7-6 (3) in the fourth round to John Millman in a match that began Monday and concluded at almost 1 a.m. on Tuesday. She lost to Stephens again this year in the French Open semifinals.

Federer started well, racing through the first set and unsettling Millman by dropping the ball short.

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.

The victor of the Djokovic-Millman quarter-final will play seventh-seeded 2014 champion Marin Cilic or Japanese star Kei Nishikori for a spot in Sunday's title match.

7-6 (7-3), handing the 20-time major victor and world number two his earliest exit at Flushing Meadows since 2013. "When you go out on the court, I think it's about engaging in a battle".

Before their match, Roger Federer said he had a great deal of respect for his Australian counterpart.

Novak Djokovic puts an ice towel around his head during a changeover against Joao Sousa during the fourth round of the U.S. Open.

That victory made Djokovic the first man ever to win all nine of the ATP Masters crowns.

On Saturday, Haddad was scheduled to visit Garanhuns, a city in Brazil's impoverished Northeast where da Silva was born. But he has been in jail since April after he was sentenced to 12 years for corruption and money laundering.

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

Prior to this match Federer had not lost a set as he he continues his chase for a sixth US Open triumph and 21st grand slam title.

Djokovic has sweated his way to a 6-3, 6-4, 6-3 fourth round win over Joao Sousa as the heat returned to the US Open.

Kei Nishikori is into the quarterfinals of his return to the U.S. Open.

The 14th-seeded Keys will play the victor of the Carla Suarez Navarro vs. Maria Sharapova match in the night session at Arthur Ashe Stadium.

An elbow injury forced the 31-year-old out of the 2017 tournament though Djokovic reached the final 12 months previously, beaten by Stan Wawrinka.

Kei Nishikori will be hoping to make another deep run at his most successful grand slam event after he outclassed Philipp Kohlschreiber 6-3 6-2 7-5 to reach the quarter-finals of the US Open on another scorchingly hot day in NY.

"I felt like a bit of a deer in headlights to begin with, to be honest with you", Millman said.
