John Millman will play Novak Djokovic in the quarter-finals of the US Open after the Australian tennis player’s stunning defeat of Roger Federer. Millman beat the Swiss legend in four sets, winning 3-6 7-5 7-6 (7) 7-6 (3). It was the first time that an Australian has defeated Federer, who had served for the second set with a 5-4 lead, in a grand slam event since 2009. Millman, who had not previously defeated a top 10 player on the ATP, becomes the first Australian to reach a grand slam quarter-final since Nick Kyrgios in Melbourne in 2015.
