Kyrgios left stunned by this insane Federer shot

Kyrgios left stunned by this insane Federer shot

He came out on top in three sets, 6-4, 6-1, 7-5, but it was his around the net shot during the third set that is worth revisiting.

"Almost unreal", said Kyrgios, who admired the bit of racquet wizardry with eyes wide open and mouth agape.

As Federer's career has progressed his match-winning shot has become his serve, and it is a formidable weapon.

The Australian had already found himself at the centre of a Flushing Meadows controversy this week when umpire Mohamed Lahyani felt it necessary to get down from his chair during Kyrgios's second round match against Frenchman Pierre-Hugues Herbert to urge him to show some interest. Yes, there have been other legends in the sport too, but there has been no one who makes the game look so easy and effortless.

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

As they approached the casket and heaping displays of roses, many people smiled, cried, crossed themselves, bowed their heads or blew kisses.

"I think to play fair and play tough", he said. "But that's just how he plays".

Federer also regarded his point as "a special one". I did a lot of things well during the whole season. The way he behaves on court. "I have barely done anything", he said.

"I know she was the best at that time, but I just wanted to win. He's the ultimate role model to anyone who wants to play".

Next for the 36-year-old American comes a quarterfinal against 2016 runner-up Karolina Pliskova, who beat Williams in the U.S. Open semifinals that year.

While he keeps on keeping on, there are all sorts of seeds tumbling from both singles draws. It was 87 degrees just before the start of Monday's day session on Arthur Ashe Stadium.

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. Federer then bested the tricky Benoit Paire 7-5 6-4 6-4, in a performance that was more workman-like than it was clinical.

Both last-eight showings at the majors came when he was a teenager.

This will be the second meeting between Federer and Millman.

- John Millman, who will face Federer for a place in the quarter-finals, admitted he was a handful for his parents when he was growing up in Brisbane. "I don't think I have done anything". "Things worked well for me today". On the fourth, Federer snapped off a forehand victor.

The outcome of Federer vs. Kyrgios might very well have been decided in the very early going, long before Federer's "How did he do that?!" trick shot in the third set.

Sacha Baron Cohen interviews OJ Simpson about a murder fantasy
Baron Cohen has honed his comedic chops throughout the show's first season and, so far, his guest list never disappoints. Simpson immediately denied the accusation, saying, "No, I didn't kill nobody ".

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.
