Tennis Today: Nick Kyrgios is NOT a Roger Federer fanboy, okay?

Nick Kyrgios stunned

In Tennis Today, Nick Kyrgios, and the rest of us for that matter, can’t get over THAT Roger Federer shot.

What’s on the site
We go straight into THAT shot. It is obviously one of Roger Federer’s best shots at the US Open, but is it THE best?

Back to the serious stuff and the top dogs remain in the hunt at Flushing Meadows. Here are the latest results…
Rafael Nadal rolls on as he sets up Dominic Thiem clash
Defending champ Sloan Stephens stays the course
Serena Williams weathers Kaia Kanepi storm
Clinical display from Juan Martin del Potro

We end this section with the gallery from a dazzling day seven at the US Open.

What’s in the news
The post-Andy Murray era is drawing closer and Simon Briggs in Telegraph Sport has done a piece on the Lawn Tennis Association’s plan to develop the next Murray.

Amazon Prime has had plenty of hiccups during their “groundbreaking coverage of the US Open” and BBC says there is plenty of room for improvement.

This year marks the 50th anniversary of Arthur Ashe becoming the first African-American man to win the US Open and the Daily Mail has “Incredible photos show tennis legend Arthur Ashe on and off the court”.

“Roger Federer reveals ‘shock’ over what he, Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic have in common” is the headline in Express Sport.

So what is the “shock”, you ask?

He is “shocked” about their consistency and, for once, he actually did use the word shock.

We are all shocked.

A few weeks ago Nick Kyrgios was all for playing in Australia’s “meaningless” Davis Cup tie against Austria, but he is singing a different tune this week as he will skip the trip to Graz, reports the Sydney Morning Herald.

Staying with players from Down Under, Bernard Tomic is making progress in terms of getting his career back on track as he won the inaugural Rafa Nadal Open.

FoxSports reports that the victory will see him climb about 26 positions in the rankings while he also earned €6,190.

What’s on social media
