Federer hands Kyrgios US Open masterclass

John McEnroe 'I'm going to defend umpire for the first time in my life!'

Federer well and truly left the often combustible Kyrgios speechless with a spellbinding performance that included a moment of magic from the 37-year-old's racket.

The third-round tie between Roger Federer and Nick Kyrgios was one of the most anticipated matches on Saturday at the US Open. 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).

The 20-time Grand Slam victor has always been an admirer of the Australian, who had had to battle back from three crushing surgeries and the depths of despair to earn his big-stage opportunity in NY. "Say something else", Kyrgios said towards his box. The way he behaves on court. But, he may need to step out of his comfort zone and play more aggressively if he wants to win this match.

Both Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic play unseeded opponents in the round of 16 at Arthur Ashe Stadium.

Serena Williams' yells of "Come on!" crescendoed right along with the tension in a fourth-round U.S. Open match that began as a rout and suddenly became riveting.

It has been reported by several local news outlets that a sheriff's deputy was shot but no civilians were injured in the incident. The suspect was transported to Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla and his condition is unknown at this time.

He still has time on his side, but he knows that the clock is ticking.

To the question of the state of his career, Kyrgios earnestly answered - a rarity for the Aussie - that he isn't satisfied. "His demeanor", the 30th-seeded Kyrgios said.

'In my career, I don't think I have - I have been around for about four years now. I have barely done anything.

"I could take a leaf out of his book", he said, "just the way he goes about things, his demeanor".

Teenage sensation Alex de Minaur joined Kyrgios in bowing out, but in far more gracious fashion, going down 4-6 3-6 6-3 6-4 7-5 in a five-set cliffhanger against seventh-seeded 2014 Open champion Marin Cilic.

United States legend John McEnroe suggested the Swiss could perform a powerful mentoring role for the combustible Kyrgios. As well as Federer neutralized his game, the 6-foot-4 Kyrgios said he might be able to learn something from Saturday.

Federer did have one piece of advice for Kyrgios - sometimes it's the conservative approach that pays off and not the flashy crowd-pleasers.

"I definitely think it was a special one, no doubt about it".

In her first-round match on Tuesday, Alize Cornet was handed a code violation for taking off her backward shirt to put it on forward.

"I managed to play on some of the biggest courts now: Wimbledon Centre Court and Australian Open, Rod Laver Arena". "If you're not serving well, he takes advantage of it". Too good on the day, GOAT.
