Australian tennis player John Millman, now ranked 55th in the world, just knocked Roger Federer out of the US Open.

Osaka beat No. 26 Aryna Sabalenka 6-3, 2-6, 6-4 to earn her first trip to a Grand Slam quarterfinal.

With the win, Keys improved to 5-0 lifetime against Cibulkova and becomes only the second woman, after Kerber, to reach the quarter-finals or better at three of the four Grand Slams this year.

"It was nearly unreal", Kyrgios reportedly said after the match, adding: "If anyone else is doing those shots against me, I'm probably not too happy".

WHAT IT MEANS: We're one step closer to a much-anticipated Djokovic-Roger Federer quarterfinal, which would be their 47 meeting on the ATP World Tour (Djokovic holds a slight 24-22 advantage) and their seventh at the US Open. She said afterward she felt dizzy and was "just asking nature, I don't know, the god, to move the shade".

Federer hung his head at a changeover, a little black fan pointed right at his face, but nothing seemed to make him feel like himself. Very rarely do you find Roger on defence, his anticipation, his ability to go cross court and not recover to the middle of the court is a major advantage.

'One of the big things with the top players at the moment, we're looking at these guys and saying well how come they're playing so good deep into their 30s?

Novak Djokovic is on to the US Open quarterfinals - and potentially a showdown with Roger Federer.

Madison Keys of the United States of America reacts after beating Dominika Cibulkova of Slovakia in a fourth round match on day eight of the 2018 U.S. Open tennis tournament at USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center.

Second seed Federer - a five-time champion at Flushing Meadows - was an overwhelming favourite to prevail against the world number 55 and set up a blockbuster quarter-final with Novak Djokovic.

The other quarterfinal on the bottom half of the draw will be 2014 runner-up Kei Nishikori against 2014 champion Marin Cilic or No. 10 David Goffin.
