Roger Federer overpowers Nick Kyrgios to reach second week of US Open

Roger Federer

However, Federer turned on the burners to race towards the net before flicking his return past the outside of the post.

Up two sets to love, the 37-year-old Swiss superstar defied his years to reach an acutely-angled Kyrgios slice, flashing a victor around the post of the net to take the game back to deuce. Federer, standing behind the baseline, took off. "You don't get an opportunity to hit around the net post very often, because in practice - you can't really train them". From there, Williams smacked an ace at 118 miles per hour, followed by a service victor at 113 miles per hour to go up 3-0, and that essentially was that.

Kanepi is ranked only 44th, but she's been a top-20 player in the past and has made it to Grand Slam quarterfinals a half-dozen times. "Nearly got to the point where I wanted him to start making shots like that, and I finally got it", Kyrgios said.

"It was nearly unreal". Verdasco denied the accusation, and Murray responded in an Instagram caption: "I'm off to get a health check as apparently I've started imagining things".

The homeless man from Philadelphia who gave a woman his last $20 last fall so she could fill up her gas tank is now suing her. Mr Bobbitt's lawsuit contends the couple committed fraud by taking money from the fundraising campaign for themselves.

Kyrgios, seeded 30th, came into the match on the back of controversy surrounding the intervention of umpire Mohamed Lahyani during his four-set victory over Pierre-Hugues Herbert but began in encouraging fashion racing through his opening few service games. "I definitely think it was a special one, no doubt about it", he told reporters after his victory. "I guess I deserve it because I went for it".

"If anyone else is doing those shots against me, I'm probably not too happy. I think I can do a lot more". "Things worked well for me today". "Sure", Federer said, pausing to smile, "it's unusual for it to happen to you with your own serve".

Volatile Australian Nick Kyrgios managed to keep the first set of his match with No. 2 seed Roger Federer relatively close, but Federer jumped out to a two-set lead after dominating in the second.

Asian Games: Iran beats South Korea to reach basketball final
The title defense was touch and go on Monday, with South Korea trailing 3-2 against Uzbekistan with 15 minutes remaining. Son said the team were treating the final as a fresh start.

"When I'm playing, I feel like [he's an] unpredictable player with an enormous serve who can just turn it on whenever he wants to do it", Federer said.

"If I can be any sort of inspiration for guys coming up on the tour, that would be great, you know, in whatever shape and form that is".

That was the first set she had lost against Kanepi of the 10 they'd played to that point, and the first set Williams had lost at the 2018 US Open, a run that included a 6-16-2 victory over her older sister Venus in the third round Friday night. Federer's record against Kyrgios improved to 3-1 with Saturday's win, their only meeting at a Grand Slam.
