US Open at a glance -- day 6

Kyrgios, the quirky Australian with a powerful serve, likes being a bit unpredictable on the court, attempting shots most wouldn't and carrying on conversations with himself throughout a match.

At one point, the Swiss marvel played one of the shots of his career, a jaw-dropping around-the-net-post forehand victor that left even his vanquished opponent in awe.

Five-time champion Roger Federer found a new way to amaze Saturday as he reached the US Open last 16 with a 6-4, 6-1, 7-5 victory over Nick Kyrgios.

Contrary to expectations, the tie witnessed one-way traffic with Kyrgios struggling to match the class of the 37-year-old, who seems determined to end his nine-year-long title drought at the Flushing Meadows.

First, though, both get what shape up as mismatches in the fourth round: Federer plays 55th-ranked John Millman, and Djokovic faces 68th-ranked Sousa.

Yes, Roger does reach the ball and yes, Nick Kyrgios was just as shocked as the rest of us.

When she ripped a backhand victor to claim the third set's opening game yesterday, Williams let out her loudest shout of the day, leaning forward and rocking both arms.

His biggest chance of the match probably came at 3-3 in the first set.

Kyrgios, who is no stranger to hitting hot shots, was so impressed with Federer's shot that he said he would be Instagramming it.

"Almost got to the point where I wanted him to start making shots like that, and I finally got it".

This time, of course, Kyrgios received no sort of counsel during the match other than all the muttering, at various volumes, he directed at himself.

Kerber, the 2016 US Open victor trying to become the third woman in the last 20 years to win both Wimbledon and the US Open in the same season, was bundled out by Slovakia's Dominika Cibulkova 3-6, 6-3, 6-3. I think I was super, super OCD, and I tried to kind of wipe that away.

But he said no matter what he tried, Federer had the answers.

"But I think, you know, just the way he goes about things, I could take a leaf out of his book".

"I know how to beat him". "He loosened up straightaway after that". "I enjoy playing against Nick, he always keeps you on the edge and it's quite entertaining also for the opponent". All the pressure was off him. "Yeah, definitely the around-the-pole shot was unique, it can only happen in a bigger court where you play with the singles net. When he gets in front, there's not much you can do".
