'Roger Federer hit one of the greatest shots ever' - Greg Rusedski

Roger Federer

"It just comes out, and it's just emotions, '" said Williams, a six-time US Open champion who finished with more than twice as many winners as Kanepi, 47-22.

Roger Federer created yet another magical moment late in the match yesterday during a win over Nick Krgios.

Federer was 21 when he won his first Slam at Wimbledon in 2003 and admitted he's happy to be regarded as a role model, if not necessarily for Kyrgios.

He'd lost just three times in an incomparable 1424-match career from such a commanding position and wasn't about to suffer a fourth such defeat at the hands of Kyrgios.

Federer alluded to one particularly questionable choice Kyrgios made at 5-all, 40-15 in the final set, when he went for a drop shot that found the net instead of simply hitting a normal forehand into the open court.

"I definitely think it was a special one, no doubt about it".

Kyrgios had come out firing, but once Federer had saved four break points in the seventh game of the opening set the Australian was at a loss.

"We're two very different characters".

"Today I think he didn't come up with the goods when he really had to, and I was good, I think, by making him hit that extra shot". The way he behaves on court. Image sourceThe shot was so good that even Kyrgios couldn't believe what he just saw! "I have put myself in this position and it is because I am playing some decent tennis right now and I plan to really give my best showing". But, he may need to step out of his comfort zone and play more aggressively if he wants to win this match.

The only goal he has scored in the colours of the Old Lady so far was in a pre-season friendly against the B team. The Spanish club went on to win the competition for the third consecutive season.

Sixth-seeded Caroline Garcia of France also departed, beaten 5-7, 6-4, 7-6 (7/4) by Spain's Carla Suarez Navarro, and Czech teenager Marketa Vondrousova sprang a surprise, too, with a 7-6 (7/4), 2-6, 7-6 (7/1) victory over 13th-seeded Belgian Kiki Bertens.

At Roland Garros and the US Open, he has never reached the second week.

While he keeps on keeping on, there are all sorts of seeds tumbling from both singles draws.

The match is the feature night fixture on Arthur Ashe Stadium, getting underway around 11am Tuesday AEST. Kohlschreiber now meets 2014 runner-up Kei Nishikori, who got past No. 13 Diego Schwartzman 6-4, 6-4, 5-7, 6-1.

Djokovic could meet Federer in the quarterfinals.

Federer will take on Australian John Millman, who reached the last 16 of a major for the first time with a 6-4, 4-6, 6-1, 6-3 victory over Kazakhstan's Mikhail Kukushkin. On the fourth, Federer snapped off a forehand victor.

Swiss ace Roger Federer will face Australian John Millman in the US Open fourth round after an emphatic victory over Nick Kyrgios.

He lost his first clash against Kyrgios in 2015, but now leads the youngster 3-1. On the fourth, Federer snapped off a forehand victor.
