Roger Federer failed to cope with stifling conditions at the U.S. Open on Monday and suffered a shock 3-6 7-5 7-6(7) 7-6(3) defeat to unseeded Australian John Millman in the last 16.

Second seed Federer, who had not dropped a set in his first three matches, was uncharacteristically sloppy, committing 77 unforced errors and 10 double faults while landing just 49 percent of his first serves.

There was little sign of what was in store for the five-times champion when he took the first set with ease, before world No. 55 Millman turned the tables to win the second then held his nerve through two tiebreaks to secure the victory in three hours and 34 minutes.

Roger Federer handed Nick Kyrgios a 6-4 6-1 7-5 tennis masterclass by storming into the fourth round of the U.S. Open on Saturday with a ruthless display that left the Australian talking to himself and waving the white flag.

With all three of their previous meetings requiring a third-set tiebreak to decide the winner, a packed Arthur Ashe Stadium had expected high drama but instead witnessed a rout as Federer recorded his third win against the unpredictable Australian.

The match was not only an intriguing contrast in styles but also in temperament, with Federer, tennis's ultimate good guy, taking on Kyrgios, the sport's undisputed bad boy.

Roger Federer made light of energy-sapping conditions to brush past Japan's Yoshihito Nishioka 6-2 6-2 6-4 in his opening match at the U.S. Open on Tuesday.

Where other players had slogged through long rallies as the temperature hit 90 Fahrenheit (32C), Federer kept his time on court to a minimum with a masterclass of serve-and-volley tennis, pulling the industrious world number 177 from one side of the court to the other at will.

Federer, the second seed, broke the Japanese lefthander in the opening game of the one-sided encounter and never looked back, rattling through his service games with a minimum of fuss to wrap up the first set in 28 minutes.

Roger Federer sent something of a shock wave through the tennis world with what he thought was an obvious joke after improving to 18-0 in first-round matches at the U.S. Open.

"I'm happy I never stumbled at the first hurdle," Federer said during his on-court interview Tuesday night. "Almost time to retire - but not yet."

Some folks' reaction might best be summed up as: Wait. WHAT?!

In an effort to accelerate pace of play, the U.S. Open introduced a shot clock — the first of its kind at a Grand Slam tennis event — and two former champions are on opposite sides of the net on the issue.

The 25-second timer between shots begins when the official announces the score after each point. If a player does not serve before the clock strikes zero, he or she is issued a warning. A second violation results in the loss of a first serve. Whereas officials previously counted down in their heads and rarely enforced a time limit, actual clocks appear on the courts in New York City for attendees to follow.
