Unseeded Millman sends Federer crashing out of U.S. Open

Roger Federer

Five-time US Open Champion Roger Federer has been knocked out of the 2018 competition in a stunning upset by Australian John Millman.

Second seed Federer - a five-time champion at Flushing Meadows - was an overwhelming favourite to prevail against the world number 55 and set up a blockbuster quarter-final with Novak Djokovic.

The Swiss superstar refused to cite any fitness or injury problems, but did say that he struggled to breathe in the heat and humidity of NY. There was no circulation at all. I have had three surgeries and every time I had extreme doubts over whether I would get back.

The sport science behind it, the nutrition, the recovery and just the work on the body - back 30 years ago, no one had a physio with them on tour.

Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross told Bloomberg Television: "We don't know, because we haven't had the sessions yet". Some American dairy farmers have complained about Canada's steep tariff on dairy products, which averages 249%.

Millman, who trained with Federer in Switzerland before the grass-court season, was in shock at having beaten one of his idols.

"I'm probably in a little bit of disbelief".

Before their match, Roger Federer said he had a great deal of respect for his Australian counterpart. "He's been a hero of mine, and today he was definitely not at his best". Until meeting Millman Tuesday, Federer hadn't dropped a set all tournament at the Arthur Ashe.

Federer broke first on the way to a 5-3 lead in the set, but Millman won the last four games, breaking Federer twice. He beat Federer, who had brushed aside the Australian in their only previous meeting at Brisbane in 2015.

Apple to unveil new iPhones in coming weeks
Whether one or both of those will be ready to launch - or at least - preview alongside the new iPhones is unclear at this stage. It's now unclear if Apple will save this announcement for later in the year or reveal all alongside its new range of phones.

Meanwhile, it hasn't all been bad news for Federer, as he impressed fans with one of his best shots to date during his last match against Kyrgios, leaving the Aussie player absolutely gobsmacked. Very rarely do you find Roger on defence, his anticipation, his ability to go cross court and not recover to the middle of the court is a major advantage. He was manipulating me around the court.

Things grew tougher in the second as a sluggish Djokovic laboured before again clinching the set with a break.

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.

For his troubles, John Millman - whose rabid fanbase are called Millminions for what it's worth - now faces another huge task in sixth-seeded Novak Djokovic in his quarter final matchup. Nearly got to the point where I wanted him to start making shots like that, and I finally got it.
