He looked to be cruising as he opened up a 5-3 lead in the second but squandered two set points when serving at 5-4 before making two unforced errors and a double fault that allowed Millman to draw level. While he eventually held there, he needed to save seven break points along the way. That's tied for first with Novak Djokovic.

Sharapova kicks off the evening session on Arthur Ashe, having never lost any of her 22 night matches in NY.

Russian Sharapova, the 2006 champion, has had three straight sets victories so far and has only ever lost one of her five previous meetings with Suarez Navarro. Notably, he had set points in the second and the third set but failed to convert them on both occasions.

Millman won't be lacking support in his maiden grand slam quarter-final.

Tsurenko struggled in the heat. She still and looked tired to start the second, leaning on her racket between points while falling behind 2-0.

"I'm under no illusions that I'm going to have to have one of my very best days to get the job done".

Women's quarterfinals: No. 17 Serena Williams beat No. 8 Karolina Pliskova 6-4, 6-3; No. 19 Anastasija Sevastova beat No. 3 Sloane Stephens 6-2, 6-3. So I'm really pleased with where my game is at at the moment.

Australian Millman had been given barely a sniff before the match, with excitement already building for a quarter-final clash between Federer and Novak Djokovic at Flushing Meadows.

The victor will face Novak Djokovic or Joao Sousa on Wednesday for a spot in Friday's semifinals.

It's the first time Millman has defeated a top-10 opponent, but Federer has always been a big supporter of his opponent.

Kei Nishikori is into the quarterfinals of his return to the U.S. Open.

"I had a shower, lay on the table and I didn't want to come back again", third-seeded Argentine Juan Martin del Potro said of how he spent the break in his 6-7 (5/7), 6-3, 7-6 (7/4), 6-2 victory over American John Isner.

Nishikori will come up against Alex de Minaur's conqueror Marin Cilic, after the seventh-seed powered past David Goffin, 7-6 (8-6), 6-2, 6-4.

Keys has reached at least the quarterfinals in three of the four Grand Slam tournaments this year.

Millman had previously made the third round in the Australian Open (2016), Wimbledon (2016) and the US Open (2017).

He reached the quarterfinals for an 11th consecutive appearance in NY as he bids for a third U.S. Open championship and 14th Grand Slam trophy.

He is expected to be Australia's second-highest ranked singles player following the US Open.

Millman paid tribute to Federer and said that he might have been slightly fortunate to get the great man on an off-day. Djokovic, the No. 6 seed, takes on 68th-ranked Joao Sousa. No. 29 Dominika Cibulkova.
