However the undoubted highlight of the match was this absurd shot from Federer.
Also on Saturday, the highly-anticipated showdown between 23-year-old Nick Kyrgios and Federer turned into a straight-sets blowout as the Swiss easily outclassed the Australian. Serving to stay in the match at 4-5, the Australian handed Federer an opening, which he duly took, pouncing on only his second break point of the match to snatch the first set like a thief in the night.
When she ripped a backhand victor to claim the third set's opening game on Sunday, Williams let out her loudest shout of the day, leaning forward and rocking both arms.
Five-time champion Roger Federer pulled out all the stops in a 6-4, 6-1, 7-5 victory over Australian Nick Kyrgios on Saturday (Sept 1) to reach the fourth round of the US Open.
Federer beat Kyrgios 6-4, 6-1, 7-5.
"Definitely a bit of luck and good feet", Federer said of the shot that had Kyrgios wide-eyed at the net.
Federer himself marked the shot as one of the most memorable.
"I think if he breaks there he probably runs away and wins that first set", Federer said. "Other big shots I remember, with Andy (Roddick), the counter-smash, and of course the between-the-legs here with Novak (Djokovic)". "I enjoy playing against Nick, he always keeps you on the edge and it's quite entertaining also for the opponent".
Klopp knew Alisson blunder was coming
The 23-year-old replaced James Madison in the 83rd minute but his efforts were not enough to help Leicester salvage even a point at home.

The court ruled the National Energy Board's review of the project was flawed because it failed to consider impact on marine life. Executive Director of the Georgia Strait Alliance Christianne Wilhelmson says the Trudeau Liberals have been shamed.
"I'm really looking forward to making the most of a second week at a grand slam", he said. Zverev still has never made the fourth round in visits to NY after being beaten 6-7 (1), 6-4, 6-1, 6-3 by Philipp Kohlschreiber in an all-German matchup, while Joao Sousa defeated Pouille 7-6 (5), 4-6, 7-6 (4), 7-6 (5). He's won five titles at the U.S Open, although the last arrived a decade ago.
The second-seeded Federer advanced to the Round of 16 with the victory.
Kanepi is ranked only 44th, but she's been a top-20 player in the past and has made it to Grand Slam quarterfinals a halfdozen times. Federer then bested the tricky Benoit Paire 7-5 6-4 6-4, in a performance that was more workman-like than it was clinical.
Federer will face unseeded world No. 55 John Millman in the fourth round who recorded consecutive four-set wins over No. 14 seed Fabio Fognini and unseeded Mikhail Kukushkin.
"He's the best that's played the game, in my opinion", said Millman, who practised with Federer ahead of the grass-court portion of this season.
But Federer came back to put the game at deuce when Kyrgios hit one into the net. All the pressure was off him.
Nadal has been spending a lot more time on court, going four sets in each of his past two outings. "When he gets in front, there's not much you can do". Kyrgios counters that is the only way he knows how to approach a match.
