You'll know when I know ― Federer not thinking of retirement

Tellingly though, he did hold two match points against Federer in their most recent encounter on the grass in Halle.

Where can I get tickets for Benoit Paire vs Roger Federer? . Both could be on tap at the U.S. Open: Federer needed a few swigs of water on another steamy day at the Open and he played like a former champion set to uncork a celebratory bottle of bubbly.

The seventh-seeded Cilic, who said it was "one of the most brutal days that we had so far this year", told reporters the heat, plus the pressure of the shot clock introduced at the tournament this year, had proved challenging. He would bypass the clay swing-a nod to the passing years and aging body-but was there any reason why the rejuvenated Swiss could not also add to his NY resume?

"I always feel the next generation is always better than the past one, yeah".

NEW YORK, Aug 31 ― Roger Federer, still a force in tennis at the age of 37, says that when he does retire it won't be a spur of the moment decision sprung on an unsuspecting public. He went on to reach a final on clay in Houston in April.

Meanwhile, however, Kyrgios had beaten another Frenchman, Pierre-Hughes Herbert, from a set and 0-3 down, to win 4-6, 7-6 (6), 6-3, 6-0, and that ensured the latest in a string of compelling, high-octane contests against a man 14 years his senior. "You are sweating so much you don't know what has hit you", Federer said. The Frenchman won their only prior meeting when Kyrgios retired injured while trailing a set in the first round at Wimbledon past year. During his title run in Brisbane in January, Kyrgios had high praise for #NextGenATP Aussie Alex de Minaur. The pair has never met.

It was typically serene progress for Federer in the first round as he was never really troubled in a routine straight sets win over Yoshihito Nishioka. De Minaur and Tiafoe are fourth and fifth in the ATP Race To Milan, respectively, as both players battle to appear at the Next Gen ATP Finals for the first time.

Eugenie Bouchard has won a match at the U.S. Open for the first time since 2015, the year she withdrew from the tournament after a fall left her with a concussion. Both men have enjoyed their deepest runs at a Grand Slam in NY.
