Dominant Roger Federer far too good for Nick Kyrgios at US Open
Roger Federer has eased into the fourth round of the US Open after absolutely decimating Nick Kyrgios.
The Swiss legend, targetting what would be a record sixth men’s title at Flushing Meadows, came into the much-anticipated clash onthe back of some fone tennis in the early rounds.
Kyrgios was expected to put upa challenge, but he was out-fought, out-played, and out-classed in Arther Ashe Stadium, with Federer claiming a dominant 6-4 6-1 7-5 win.
Federer will now face Kyrgios’ fellow Australian John Millman in the round of 16 after the Brisbane native overcame Mikhail Kukushkin 6-4 4-6 6-1 6-3.

“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.”
