Australian tennis player John Millman, now ranked 55th in the world, just knocked Roger Federer out of the US Open.
7-6 (7/3) victory in his first Grand Slam fourth round match scuppered a blockbuster quarter-final between Federer and two-time victor Novak Djokovic.
Naomi Osaka became the first Japanese woman to reach the quarterfinals of a Grand Slam in 14 years, edging Aryna Sabalenka 6-3, 2-6, 6-4 in a matchup of 20-year-olds.
When asked if he would be watching Federer's match, Djokovic said: "Well I'm going to first try and put the kids to sleep". All these players now at the US Open, they get access to the physios on site, but when you have a guy like Roger that every single day his body is getting taken care of, his body is getting worked on, it literally slows the ageing process.' 'Roger has a game style that has such little stress on his body, he floats around the court, he keeps the points short, he's still so quick. The feet weren't moving.
"I'm very happy to be through".
The heat, though, is much tougher on Djokovic, who showed the same blank expression, rosy cheeks and sweat-soaked shirt as during his first-round match last week. He netted a service return, and Millman converted his second set point to seize a two sets to one lead.
Just two days ago, Millman described his third-round victory over Mikhail Kukushkin as the "biggest moment of my career".
Meanwhile, it hasn't all been bad news for Federer, as he impressed fans with one of his best shots to date during his last match against Kyrgios, leaving the Aussie player absolutely gobsmacked. I think I really found my serve.

His match didn't get to the point of a heat interruption, because he wrapped it up in straight sets, but that did come into play for a couple of women's matches.
