Rafael Nadal notched up his 50th win at the US Open to reach the quarter-finals for the seventh time Monday as teen sensation Andrey Rublev and comeback queen Kaia Kanepi muscled into the spotlight.
"Every victory, every set that you win, is more confidence".
Up next for Nadal will be the victor of the quarter-final clash between five-times US Open champion Federer and Juan Martin del Potro, the 2009 victor.
Kanepi is back to her best after nearly two years off the courts because of an injury and a virus, and Keys will be aiming to join compatriots Sloane Stephens and Venus Williams in the last-four. Federer said he was anxious about his movement in his first-round match against 19-year-old American Frances Tiafoe, then had timing issues in his second-rounder against 35-year-old Russian Mikhail Youzhny - and both of those contests went five sets.
"Probably feels like one of those matches I would like to play over again. The only time when he was really better, in my opinion, was the fifth set", he added. He's had a rough side for a lot of years with his wrist.
That has had an effect on his two-handed backhand, to be sure, but the righty swing that produces massive forehands and serves is still intact - as Federer himself noted at his news conference and on Twitter.
