Th end of the road have come too soon for two tennis greats at the ongoing U.S Open.

Maria Sharapova and, Roger Federer have both been sent packing at the Flushing Meadows.

Unheralded Australian John Millman pulled off one of the all-time great tennis shocks by defeating Federer to reach the US Open quarter-finals.

Millman had been given barely a sniff before the match, with excitement already building for a last-eight clash between Federer and Djokovic.

The 29-year-old, who had never previously beaten a top-10 opponent, appeared to have even less chance of winning with Federer a set and a break up and holding two set points, but he somehow clawed his way back to clinch a 3-6 7-5 7-6 (8/6) 7-6 (7/3) victory.

On her part, despite all her trademark ‘moaning’, Sharapova, the 2006 champion, suffered a second successive last-16 exit in New York.

She was blasted off court by Carla Suarez Navarro.

The Spanish player marked her 30th birthday in style with a memorable 6-4, 6-3 win over the five-time major champion whose last Slam title was in Paris in 2014.
