Roger Federer vs John Millman, Australian Open 2020, third round

Roger Federer vs John Millman, Australian Open 2020, third round

He lost that match and the Wimbledon final later that year to Andy Murray.

"I don't know anything remotely close", Federer recalled at Melbourne Park on Wednesday. I just wasn't doing the right technique, catching the ball not in my strike zone. I never had that. But I don't have that feeling about this game.

But he remains wary of the Australian after his US Open upset, where he struggled in the hot conditions.

In contrast, Federer has made the semi-finals or better 14 times.

"He's a great guy. He's fit like a fiddle", Federer said. "This time I come more aggressively", said Gauff. I've lost to him in the past. he's from this country so naturally also it's going to be different intensity. "I'm happy, I'm still going".

"I have no regrets".

Federer and Groth met at the US Open in 2014. I don't know if he would have played too many matches on the outside ones'. It was just not meant to be that day. "I hit the wall". I tried to figure it out as long as I could.

"I nearly passed out when I played out against him in NY".

"Diego is definitely one of the quickest on tour".

What he won't have forgotten is just how dogged a competitor Millman is and how good a player he has become. The other time was in Halle past year. "That was one of those really special nights at Arthur Ashe, packed crowd there".

Roger Federer is still playing tennis at the highest level.

"I think the next game will really be a test for me because John will be there".

Trying to banish the memories of last year's shock fourth-round exit, third seed Federer has looked a class above in his two matches so far at Melbourne Park. But the Australian will give it his all.

"I prefer to be overcooked", said the Swiss.

"[But] I'll go out there and leave it all out there". I don't even know what to'say when you watch this. You don't play sport to not want these moments.

The pair will face off on Friday, with the Swiss champion looking unstoppable earlier int he week in his round two match against Serbian Filip Krajinovic.

You could see that he was rattled - he wouldn't have known me very well, other than being the giant Aussie who was going to serve big. She did it largely on the strength of her service game, striking seven aces, fending off all four of Zidansek's break chances and winning 78 percent of her first-serve points compared to 53 percent for her opponent in the one hour, 19-minute match.

Millman had previously asked to be scheduled to play on Melbourne Arena because it is a rowdier stadium where spectators can enter the venue with a standard ground-pass ticket. "It wasn't 100 percent fair that he played five sets yesterday and I zero".

Federer later laughed off the request, saying he was "ready" to play anywhere.

Millman, who admitted organisers would nearly certainly not take his request seriously, said he felt courts other than Rod Laver had better crowd support for him.

I'd won a Challenger event in Manchester when I turned up at Wimbledon - and having drawn on the experience of having played him the year before - I finally felt ready. I don't know if he was joking or if he was serious [because of the move]. "You would think a match like this should be played at Rod Laver Arena maybe".

Other seeds advancing included No. 1 Ashleigh Barty of Australia, who will face No. 29 Elena Rybakina of Kazakhstan.

The match against Thompson started Wednesday and wasn't wrapped up until past 12:10 a.m. on Thursday local time at Margaret Court Arena. But I haven't thought of it.

When I went out on centre court, you get interviewed in the tunnel by Brad Gilbert and then let me tell you - Arthur Ashe Stadium is simply massive.
