Millman stuns Federer at the US Open

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.

Before this year's US Open, Millman had only ever progressed past the first round of a Grand Slam tournament on a handful of occasions, with his previous best efforts coming in third round exits at the 2016 Australian Open and 2016 Wimbledon.

Zverev recently joined the forces with tennis legend Ivan Lendl, and speaking on it Federer said: 'He's been struggling at slams maybe a little bit, sure, but he's still young, so time is on his side.

The third set was a much tighter affair with just one break chance to Federer in the very first game as it went to a tiebreak, Federer squandering a set point at 6-5 before Millman clinched to go ahead point at the second attempt to lead for the first time.

Last August, Trump announced a new strategy for South Asia focused on eliminating terrorism in Afghanistan and Pakistan. The issue of combatting terrorism is expected to be raised by Pompeo during his talks with Khan in Islamabad this week.

Federer, indeed, did not play as well as he had in the opening three matches, when he didn't drop a set. Millman is ranked No. 55.

The start of the second proved to be tricky for the Swiss, who couldn't find a first serve in 18 of 24 points in a marathon 14-minute service game, but Millman couldn't take his opportunity to break. "Definitely a player I've looked up to throughout my career", he said before the match. A universally popular player who has built a successful career, despite several serious injury setbacks, on never giving an inch.

With chants of, "Let's go, Roger, let's go", in the background, he blasted a blistering forehand victor that exploded past a lunging Federer to go up 8-7 then finished the set off with a big first serve. Bloody go you good ass thing. A Federer double-fault enabled Millman to pull even at 5-all and Federer lost his serve again when his backhand sailed long, evening the match at a set apiece.

Federer hit back midway through the fourth, breaking Millman to 15 to offer himself a lifeline in the match.
