In a shocking exit, the World no. 2 Roger Federer lost to unseeded Australian John Millman during the US Open 2018 on Monday.

It was most striking during Lesia Tsurenko's 6-7 (3), 7-5, 6-2 win against Marketa Vondrousova, in which both players seemed affected by the temperature and mugginess.

Federer started the match well, breaking his opponent to love in his first service game to take a 2-0 lead and not yielding any break chances as he sealed the opener at the third attempt.

He improved to 28-0 at the U.S. Open against opponents ranked outside the top 50, and here's another reason it wasn't all that surprising the way things went: Djokovic is now 5-0 against Sousa, taking all 14 sets they've played against each other.

He praised China for its "remarkable economic achievements" including that it lifted millions of its people out of poverty. The initiatives include infrastructure connectivity, green development, and health care, as well as peace and security.

Federer, indeed, did not play as well as he had in the opening three matches, when he didn't drop a set. Federer committed 10 double faults during the shocking upset - the fourth time he's done that in his Major career, and the first time since 2009.

"I've got a lot of respect for Roger".

This, however, dwarfed it, a win over arguably the greatest of all time to reach his first Grand Slam quarterfinal against a decidedly pro-Federer crowd.

Defeating Mikhail Kukushkin 6-4, 4-6, 6-1, 6-3 previously, the young Aussie had to be booted off the court because there were so many people lining up for autographs and photographs.

Keys lost to Sloane Stephens in last year's final, and also lost to Stephens again this year in the French Open semifinals. Keys punched her ticket to the quarterfinals with a dominant 6-1, 6-3 victory over No. 35 seed Dominika Cibulkova of Slovakia. She still and looked tired to start the second, leaning on her racket between points while falling behind 2-0.

"I felt like a deer in the headlights to begin with, to be honest", Millman added. She hit only 17 winners but the 19-year-old Vondrousova made 90 errors - 73 unforced.
