Federer's round-the-net victor leaves Kyrgios speechless

Roger Federer defeats Nick Kyrgios in 2018 US Open third round

The most spectacular part? Who will come out on top?

- Roger Federer eased past Nick Kyrgios 6-4, 6-1, 7-5 in a match which included an unlikely forehand, flicked from near the ground around the net post that Kyrgios couldn't believe.

"I take one of those points, the match is wide open", Kyrgios said.

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

Federer himself marked the shot as one of the most memorable.

For all its bright spots, the first week of this year's US Open has been a weird one, with pot-stirring events happening daily. 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. Federer ran cross court to pull off an incredible shot by the side of the net which left everyone's jaw dropped. "But that's just how he plays".

Federer explained his plan to negate Kyrgios's volatility was to play it safe and rely on his most consistent tennis.

"The way he behaves on court, his demeanour".

'I think we're two very different characters, ' he said. The first came three years ago in the second round in Brisbane, and though Federer won it, Millman can take heart from his performance.

True to form, Kyrgios had already been responsible for some drama in NY this week after being forced to defend himself against claims that an umpire had improperly helped coach him to victory during his second-round match against Pierre-Hugues Herbert.

While he keeps on keeping on, there are all sorts of seeds tumbling from both singles draws. Federer's record against Kyrgios improved to 3-1 with Saturday's win, their only meeting at a Grand Slam.

He focused his fury on ESPN sideline reporter Maria Taylor Saturday night after she had the audacity to bring up the topic. However, Saban apparently issued an apology to Taylor, which felt necessary.

Over in Ashe at night, five-time major champion Maria Sharapova eliminated No. 10 Jelena Ostapenko 6-3, 6-2.

Two seeded men lost in the afternoon: No. 4 Alexander Zverev and No. 17 Lucas Pouille.

For many, his visit to NY this year was his tennis career in a nutshell.

Kohlschreiber will seek a quarter-final berth against 2014 runner-up Kei Nishikori after the Japanese downed Argentine Diego Schwartzman 6-4, 6-4, 5-7, 6-1.

At night, 13-time major champion Novak Djokovic easily beat No. 26 Richard Gasquet 6-2, 6-3, 6-3 in Ashe, while 2014 U.S. Open title victor Marin Cilic met 19-year-old Alex de Minaur in Armstrong in the day's last match.

"I don't know what anything has to do with Madison and my match". "Things worked well for me today". Millman, who is making his debut in the fourth round at a Major, will have no intention of becoming a stepping stone along Federer's path to glory.

Nick Kyrgios views Roger Federer as the "ultimate role model" to anyone who harbours ambitions of playing tennis and admits he should "take a leaf out of his book", while he admitted he's open to the possibility of adding a mentor figure to his team going forwards.

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.

If zero-gravity is more your vibe, how about the first tennis match in space?

But Courier has sensationally claimed the forehand victor isn't that hard to pull off.
