U.S. Open 2018

Roger Federer made a shock exit from the U.S. Open in New York after the five-times champion was beaten 3-6, 7-5, 7-6, 7-6, by unseeded australian john millman in the round of 16.

Millman, ranked 55th in the world, was dominated by Federer in the first set but turned the tables on the Swiss to take the second then held his nerve through two tiebreaks to secure the win in three hours and 34 minutes.

Second seed Federer, who had not dropped a set in his first three matches in new york, had 77 unforced errors and 10 double faults and landed just 49 percent of his first serves.
