'Roger Federer hit one of the greatest shots ever' - Greg Rusedski

Kyrgios dropped just five points on his serve in that set-four in one awful game-and that was more than enough of an opening for Federer to seize the advantage and never look back. Chasing down a cheeky drop shot, the Swiss hit it inches off the ground and curled it around the net post for a ridiculous victor that earned him a standing ovation from the hollering crowd.

At 3-all into the third set of Federer's dominant win over the Australian, the Swiss marvel played one of the shots of the tournament and even his career, a freakish around-the-net-post forehand victor that left Kyrgios in awe.

The rant was highlighted by one particular journo who quoted Kyrgios as saying, "I need an umpire to coach".

"These shots can only really happen on a big court where you play with the singles posts in the doubles alley". I realised it went too flat. Zverev still has never made the fourth round in visits to NY after being beaten 6-7 (1), 6-4, 6-1, 6-3 by Philipp Kohlschreiber in an all-German matchup, while Joao Sousa defeated Pouille 7-6 (5), 4-6, 7-6 (4), 7-6 (5). "Sometimes it doesn't have to be the best shot, but making them play another shot, you might get another opportunity".

Although Kyrgios went on to hold serve in the game, Federer broke four games later to help seal his place in the last 16 at Flushing Meadows. Hours earlier, 13-time major champion Novak Djokovic easily beat No. 26 Richard Gasquet 6-2, 6-3, 6-3 under the lights in Ashe.

Thiem prevented a rematch of last year's US Open final by eliminating 2017 runner-up and No 5 seed Kevin Anderson 7-5 6-2 7-6 (2). The twist, though, was that it was Federer who got to show off his magic hands. It was tough. I knew how important that first set was.

Another source told the news agency the worker did not report the error and instead applied a sealant of some sort. The second person told RIA: "Once in orbit, the glue dried and was squeezed out, opening the hole".

When asked about the incident, Federer made it clear he thought umpire Mohamed Lahyani had stepped over the line in helping Kyrgios, adding some spice to an already spicy third-round match-up with the fiery Australian.

However, after dropping just one point in his first four service games, Kyrgios allowed his level to drop serving at 4-5 and Federer capitalised.

"He loosened up straightaway after that". Federer dropped just eight points on his first serve in 15 games, recorded 51 winners to 24 unforced errors and saved all four break points he faced in a peerless display of shot-making. All the pressure was off him. "He hits that shot but then, if he doesn't win that point, maybe he tells himself, 'Well, maybe I should have hit a normal shot". "But some playing styles suit you more and some don't".

"I'm not looking around who was winning or who was losing", she said.

With all three of their previous meetings requiring a third-set tiebreak to decide the victor, a packed Arthur Ashe Stadium had expected high drama but instead witnessed a rout as Federer recorded his third win against the unpredictable Australian.
