A day when Roger Federer isn’t absolutely disgusting at tennis must be coming, right?
The Swiss tennis legend scored an impressive 6-4, 6-1, 7-5 victory over Aussie Nick Kyrgios in third-round play at the U.S. Open on Saturday. The match featured no shortage of highlights, including a jaw-dropping shot from Federer that left Kyrgios speechless during the third set.

The second-seeded Federer advanced to the Round of 16 with the victory. He’ll square off with Aussie John Millman on Monday for the right to play in the quarterfinals.
Federer, of course, is in search of his 20th Grand Slam singles title. The 37-year-old already holds the record for most Grand Slam victories with 20.
