The Top 3 at the Men’s event of the US Open has now been pruned to one with Roger Federer the latest victim.
The world No. 3 Roger Federer was stunned by Grigor Dimitrov 3-6, 6-4, 3-6, 6-4, 6-2 for the first time in eight tries.
The Swiss who looked visibly worn out committed so many errors going into the fourth set as he lost out of what would have been his best shot of claiming another grand slam title.
Dimitrov will next face fifth-ranked Daniil Medvedev, who defeated No. 23 seed Stan Wawrinka earlier Tuesday while Rafael Nadal faces No. 20 seed Diego Schwartzman of Argentina both on Wednesday.
