Next Gen fall flat at U.S. Open

Roger Federer defeats Nick Kyrgios in 2018 US Open third round

Unfortunately he kept his word for only half the match and it was not until Federer rounded off a 6-4 6-1 7-5 win with a concluding ace down the middle that Kyrgios offered him a respectful handshake.

When she ripped a backhand victor to claim the third set's opening game on Sunday, Williams let out her loudest shout of the day, leaning forward and rocking both arms.

"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.

A break at that point could have put serious doubt in his opponent's mind, but Federer weathered the storm, and after seven deuces and four break points saved, holding serve felt like a victory.

Up two sets to love, the 37-year-old Swiss superstar defied his years to reach an acutely-angled Kyrgios slice, flashing a victor around the post of the net to take the game back to deuce.

Federer then survived a fourth break point before eventually winning the game when Kyrgios hit the ball wide.

Oliver Brown: Roger Federer with one of the shots of this or any other year.

Nick Kyrgios is supposed to be the one who plays trick shots. "I have barely done anything", he said.

"He should have hit a normal forehand in the open court and he chooses to go for sort of the drop shot, which at the end cost him the match", Federer said.

Thiem prevented a rematch of last year's U.S. Open final by eliminating 2017 runner-up and No. 5 seed Kevin Anderson 7-5, 6-2, 7-6 (2).

Zverev, the 21-year-old sensation who has lifted titles in Munich, Madrid and Washington this year and reached finals in Miami and Rome fell, 6-7 (1/7), 6-4, 6-1, 6-3 to veteran compatriot Philippe Kohlschreiber.

Nick Kyrgios has confessed to having accomplished nothing in his turbulent tennis career after being handed a grand slam reality check at Flushing Meadows.

Millman had earlier reached the fourth round at a Grand Slam for the first time in his career with a 6-4 4-6 6-1 6-3 victory over fellow unseeded player Mikhail Kukushkin. As well as Federer neutralized his game, the 6-foot-4 Kyrgios said he might be able to learn something from Saturday.

"I respect him a lot, because for me, it's very challenging to play the best tennis against all these tall girls". "He loosened up straightaway after that".

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. "When he gets in front, there's not much you can do". On the first three, Kyrgios missed a shot.
