Federer makes incredible shot at US Open

Federer makes incredible shot at US Open

There are times in sports when being different can be good.

US Open finalist Kevin Anderson survived a scare from 19-year-old Denis Shapovalov and won 4-6, 6-3, 6-4, 4-6, 6-4 to reach the fourth round.

Millman spent several days training with Federer at the 20-times grand slam's Swiss base before Wimbledon and says he won't be overawed.

"There is a lot more things to explore". I think I was super, super OCD, and I tried to kind of wipe that away.

Kyrgios could have held his composure much better than he did.

There are no words for Federer's brilliance. Federer ran cross court to pull off an incredible shot by the side of the net which left everyone's jaw dropped.

The third-round match between Federer and Kyrgios lived up to the hype in these clips. Federer would later break Kyrgios' service to win the first set on a backhand victor.

Clearly frustrated by the loss of the opener, Kyrgios - who had appeared to imitate the service actions of Federer and Rafael Nadal during the opening set - suddenly fell apart.

When asked about it later, Kyrgios laughed it off, denying that he said it. Fact is, he was rattled. You know, he played really well today. I thought I was not going to get it. I have had three surgeries and every time I had extreme doubts over whether I would get back.

Google Announces New Artificial Intelligence Technology to Fight Online Child Sexual Abuse
The NCA said it had received a staggering 82,109 referrals for child sexual abuse images from social media companies in 2017. Instead, they will have to deal with stuff that is most likely to have child sexual abusive material (CSAM).

The world No 2, a five-time victor in NY, maintained his ideal progress through the draw with a 6-4 6-1 7-5 victory in one hour and 44 minutes. Sure, it's unusual to happen against you with your own serve.

"I know how to beat him". "He loosened up straightaway after that". Obviously I was not at my best, but that's how he makes you play. All the pressure was off him.

"He's an unbelievable frontrunner", Kyrgios said. "When he gets in front, there's not much you can do".

The match was not only an intriguing contrast in styles but also in temperament, with Federer, tennis's ultimate good guy, taking on Kyrgios, the sport's undisputed bad boy.

"At 3-3, love-40, I take one of those points, the match is wide open", said Kyrgios. "I'm very happy to have won through in three..."

Kyrgios admits he has a lot to learn.

Rather than someone just going for it, you have a tendency to play safe, as well, which can be an advantage for him.

Surging Serbian Novak Djokovic will look to book his ticket to the fourth round when he takes on France's Richard Gasquet also during the night session at the Arthur Ashe Stadium.

Sabalenka will play Japan's Naomi Osaka, who crushed Aliaksandra Sasnovich 6-0, 6-0.
