“He’s my hero,” Millman said of Federer.
“It will be a challenge and at least I am in the position to have that challenge.”
“This is the biggest moment of my career,” said Millman.
“It’s been a bumpy road. I have had three surgeries and every time I had extreme doubts over whether I would get back.
“But I have got great people around me who lift me up when I’m feeling sorry for myself.”
