Roger Federer lost to a player ranked outside of the top 50 for the first time at the US Open as Australia's John Millman stunned him to set up a quarter-final against Novak Djokovic.

There was that sort of respite during No. 20 Naomi Osaka's 6-3, 2-6, 6-4 win against No. 26 Aryna Sabalenka, a matchup between two powerful players seeking a first Grand Slam quarterfinal appearance.

This, however, dwarfed it, a win over arguably the greatest of all time to reach his first Grand Slam quarterfinal against a decidedly pro-Federer crowd.

"I think we both struggled a little bit with the heat, but we both played good tennis".

Roger Federer says he has enormous respect for John Millman ahead of their US Open fourth-round clash at Flushing Meadows after the pair trained together in the lead-up to the grass-court season. She said afterward she felt dizzy and was "just asking nature, I don't know, the god, to move the shade".

Things grew tougher in the second as a sluggish Djokovic laboured before again clinching the set with a break.

The victor will play Novak Djokovic, who easily accounted Joao Sousa of Portugal 6-3, 6-4, 6-3 earlier in the day.

The first Portuguese player to reach the fourth round of any Grand Slam, the 68th ranked Sousa never looked a threat to progress any further as his magical U.S. Open run came to an end.

"You don't get an opportunity to hit around the net post very often".

Millman, ranked 55 in the world, will now face sixth seed Novak Djokovic in the US Open Quarters.

The 29-year-old, who was born in Brisbane and is now ranked 55th in the world, was up two sets to one against the Swiss juggernaut and prevailed in a gripping fourth-set tie-break to win 3-6, 7-5, 7-6. 7-6. That was the first time in tournament history that the U.S. Open created an extreme heat policy for men's matches - they can opt for a 10-minute break between the third and fourth sets - similar to what's standard on the women's tour, when there can be a delay between the second and third sets.
