Injured Djokovic quits US Open clash with Wawrinka

Injured Djokovic quits US Open clash with Wawrinka”

"The time is slowly coming around for me, in my mind, my team, my family, to find out what's the best schedule after Wimbledon next year".

After the grind of 20 years playing Grand Slam events, the record Federer really wants to rewrite is his unmatched 20 men's Slam titles.

Roger Federer advanced to the US Open quarter-finals for the 13th time in his past 15 attempts last night by defeating Belgian 15th seed David Goffin 6-2, 6-2, 6-0.

Roger Federer serves during his Men's Singles fourth round match against David Goffin on day seven of the 2019 U.S. Open at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center on September 1, 2019 in NY.

"I thought I was not gonna play".

Perched at a No. 24 ranking nowadays, Wawrinka, 34, will play a quarterfinal against Daniil Medvedev, whose unusual hot summer has lifted him to No. 5.

While Medvedev has struggled a little physically in this tournament, I'd be very surprised if he was beaten by a mainly Challenger Tour player and I have little doubt that Koepfer will have to over perform again on key points if he is to cause an upset.

"Maybe he struggled a bit early on".

"Sometimes these scores just happen", Federer said after the match.

"Being a father and a husband and having a family is the biggest thing for me, but right now I'm in the midst of an unfortunate situation and I have to suffer the consequences of that".

Koepfer, hoping to be the first US Open qualifier in the quarter-finals since Gilles Muller in 2008, was broken by Medvedev at love in the fifth game of the third set and the Russian held from there, then dominated the decisive tie-breaker. I like playing against him.

Medvedev was forced to come from behind to earn a 3-6 6-3 6-2 7-6 (2) win over the world number 113.

Despite his unfortunate exit, Djokovic was very complimentary towards Wawrinka, who he referred to as a "big-match player". "This is what I practiced for, to play those matches", Dimitrov said.

"It s a great opportunity for both of us". He's a good friend of mine, ' said Federer.

Five-time US Open champion Federer unleashed a dominant performance, improving to 9-1 all-time against Goffin.

"As soon as you get there, first match on Ashe against him, you can feel all the 20 000 people are behind him as soon as he hit the ball", Goffin said.

"All of a sudden every shot is 10 times tougher than usually".

Goffin broke in the third game.

"Today I was losing 6-2 2-0 and I was painful in my attitude before the match", he said.

"If you weren't here, I probably would lose the match".
