John Millman upset five-time former champion Roger Federer on Monday night time to turn into the primary Australian man to succeed in the US Open quarter-finals since Lleyton Hewitt in 2006. Twelve months in the past, Millman was ranked No. 235 within the ATP Rankings and is now assured of a High 40 breakthrough.
The tennis world reacted on social media to Millman’s huge win, a match that ended near 1 a.m. native time on Tuesday morning.
