Federer reaches U.S. Open quarters, Barty knocked out

Federer reaches U.S. Open quarters, Barty knocked out

"I played really good tennis and enjoyed myself", said Federer, who meets 15th seed David Goffin next.

After moving through to the quarter-finals with an nearly effortless 6-2, 6-2, 6-0 victory over 15th seed David Goffin, Roger Federer expressed uncertainty about whether he will compete at next year's Olympics in Tokyo.

Japanese seventh seed Nishikori, the 2014 US Open runner-up, lost to Australia's Alex de Minaur 6-2, 6-4, 2-6, 6-3.

Goffin, who actually broke Federer's serve early in the first set, won just seven points in the third, the Swiss finishing him off with a stunning backhand pass down the line.

"I was down in the score earlier", Federer said. It's awesome. I am not gonna say he can't win one.

The women's field almost lost one of its top seeds, but 2016 runner-up Karolina Pliskova held on to edge Ons Jabeur 6-1, 4-6, 6-4 and reach the fourth round.

Roger Federer will try to avoid a second consecutive fourth-round exit from the U.S. Open when he returns to action on Sunday, while Serena Williams resumes her quest for a record-tying 24th Grand Slam title. The defending US Open champion also won the Australian Open in January.

Williams, a six-time US Open champ and 23-time Grand Slam tournament victor, moves on to play Wang Qiang.

Following separation, Vikram will perform two deorbit maneuvers to prepare for its landing in the south polar region of the moon . The spacecraft has reached into an orbit that is 119 km from the lunar surface at its nearest point, and 127 km at the farthest.


The world No.58 said his rank meant he had no say over scheduling, while he suggested top stars like Federer, Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal had more sway with organisers.

Next up for Konta is the victor of the night match on Arthur Ashe Stadium between fifth-seeded Elina Svitolina and No. 10 Madison Keys.

His minor outburst was part of the lingering fallout from a rainy Wednesday when many matches were postponed, except those played in the two arenas with roofs: Ashe and Louis Armstrong stadiums.

Djokovic was trailing 6-4, 7-5, 2-1 when he quit.

Federer faces No. 15 David Goffin in the fourth round, where the five-time U.S. Open champion lost a year ago. Medvedev was fined $9,000 for an obscene gesture and unsportsmanlike conduct in a third-round victory, his third fine in three matches at Flushing Meadows.

"This is where I feel like my game's at. I hope he has a better end of the year". "Hopefully I can just keep it rolling". Dimitrov has been much luckier with his draw and much better on the court at Flushing Meadows, where he has dismissed Andreas Seppi and lucky loser Kamil Majchrzak while also getting a walkover from Borna Coric.

"These guys, the tournament obviously want Roger... would rather Roger be going through that match than me, so it's understandable", Evans told the media.

Dimitrov has slumped to 78th in the world after winning only one match since Wimbledon until this week and enduring a humiliating loss to world No. 405 Kevin King last month in Atlanta, where de Minaur collected his second title of the year.
