Dimitrov, 28, faces Russian fifth seed Daniil Medvedev in the last four.“Clearly in the end he was not at his best. I used every opportunity I had,” said the Bulgarian.World number 78 Dimitrov’s shock win ensured there will be at least one first-time Grand Slam finalist on Sunday.Third seed Federer, who lost to Australian John Millman in the last 16 last year, has now been knocked out of the US Open by players ranked outside of the world’s top 50 for the second successive year – after never previously having lost to one at Flushing Meadows.Afterwards, the 20-time Grand Slam champion said he was struggling with the back problem throughout the match.“I feel low. I’m disappointed it is over because I feel as I though I was playing well,” Federer said.“It is a missed opportunity. I thought if I could get through I’d have two days off after.”Federer’s exit leaves long-time rival Rafael Nadal as the strong favourite to lift the trophy, with defending champion Novak Djokovic also out after retiring injured from his last-16 match against Stan Wawrinka on Sunday.Spanish second seed Nadal, a three-time US Open champion, faces Argentine 20th seed Diego Schwartzman in their quarter-final on Wednesday.But it is clearly a golden opportunity for 33-year-old Nadal to win his 19th Grand Slam title and narrow the gap on Federer in the race to be regarded as the greatest men’s player of all time.Federer’s loss also ended the possibility of the illustrious pair, rather remarkably, meeting at the US Open for the first time in their enduring rivalry.Dimitrov, whose career has stalled spectacularly in the past two years, was not expected to be the man to prevent a ‘Fedal’ final from happening.Nicknamed ‘Baby Fed’ in the early days of his professional career because of his technique, the Bulgarian was once heralded as the man who might succeed the Swiss as the leading player in the men’s game.But he has tumbled down the ATP rankings since reaching a career-high ranking of three in November 2017, with a shoulder injury derailing his season this year and forcing him to withdraw from four tournaments.Coming into the final Grand Slam of the season Dimitrov had lost seven of his previous eight matches, including a chastening defeat by world number 405 Kevin King in Atlanta.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Roger Federer Five-time champion Roger Federer is out of the US Open after Bulgaria’s Grigor ‘Baby Fed’ Dimitrov won a late-night thriller to finally beat the Swiss great.Federer, 38, had won all seven of their previous meetings but unseeded Dimitrov fought back to win 3-6 6-4 3-6 6-4 6-2.Federer, who needed treatment for a back injury in the latter stages, said: “I felt it the whole time, but I was able to play.”
PERTH, Australia (AP): South Africa staged a remarkable comeback and shrugged off the loss of fast bowler Dale Steyn to injury in the first cricket Test at the WACA yesterday. After Australia’s openers piled up 158-0, swing bowlers Vernon Philander (4-56) and Kasigo Rabada (2-78), and left arm spinner Keshav Mahraj (3-56) exposed the vulnerability of the Australian batting to dismiss the host for 244 runs. South Africa were bowled out for 242 after winning the toss and batting first on the opening day. The visitors were in trouble at 45-2 in the second innings after losing opener Stephen Cook (12) and Hashim Amla (1). But opener Dean Elgar (46 not out) and Jean-Paul Duminy (34 not out) guided South Africa to 104-2 at the close, a lead of 102 runs. Mahraj bowled with guile and control to claim the wickets of skipper Steve Smith, Peter Nevill and Mitchell Starc. Australia lost ten for 86 before and after lunch following an aggressive stand between David Warner (97) and Shaun Marsh (63). Warner was racing toward his 17th career century when he pushed at a delivery from Steyn away from the body, and was caught by first slip Amla. Warner’s dismissal triggered a top-order collapse as Australia lost Usman Khawaja (4), Smith (0), and Marsh in the space of 23 runs before lunch. Khawaja was yorked by Rabada, and two overs later, Mahraj dismissed Smith leg before wicket for his maiden Test wicket. Soon after dismissing Warner, Steyn left the field. Maharaj completed Steyn’s unfinished over and in his very next over trapped Smith, who unsuccessfully reviewed the on-field decision. “Losing nine for 80 is disappointing in any context in this game,” Warner lamented. “I accept responsibility as well as a top order batter. We always talk about one guy going on and getting a big hundred.” Steyn was taken to a nearby hospital for scans and was diagnosed with a rare bone stress which may force him out of the game for at least six months, according to team officials. Steyn will return home at the end of the first Test.
