Greg Rusedski raises US Open worries after surprise Cincinnati defeat

Swiss Tennis veteran and seven-time Cincinnati Masters champion Roger Federer faced a stunning defeat against Andrey Rublev of Russian Federation in his Round of 16 encounter and thus made an early exit from the competition.

The Swiss 20-time grand slam champion praised Rublev, who converted three of four break points in his win.

"I played 45 matches this year, so I think I should be fine", said Federer. Djokovic was the only one of the top three left in Cincinnati, set to play later in the day. The seven-time champion was ousted from one of his favorite tournaments in barely over an hour, falling in straight sets to a 21-year-old qualifier he'd never faced.

"It's maybe a small advantage to have over us, but regardless, you've still got to hit the corners, hit the lines, keep it going".

Rublev's win sets up an all-Russian quarter-final with ninth seed Daniil Medvedev.

"I thought he was very solid. I don't know. I just walked off the court".

Meanwhile, Roebolph will seek to build an impressive professional year that has seen him beat two of the top five players: the second dominant theme. Pouille beat eighth seed Karen Khachanov of Russian Federation 6-7 (3), 6-4, 6-2 to make his third quarter-final - and first at the Masters 1000 level - of the season. I had to serve well, which I have done, and it got me out of the trouble especially in the second set when I had to face some break points.

Coming into the Western & Southern Open in Cincinnati, Roger Federer looked to wipe the slate clean after losing a heartbreaking Wimbledon final to Novak Djokovic.

Qualifier Yoshihito Nishioka withdrew because of illness, sending David Goffin into the semifinals.

In the early match, Richard Gasquet is perhaps a touch under-rated at [4.40] when looking at basic hold/break numbers for his match against Roberto Bautista-Agut, but the 4-1 head to head lead in the Spaniard's favour is probably worth considering here.
