Roger Federer goes out to Grigor Dimitrov: US Open 2019

Five-time champion Roger Federer is out of the US Open after Bulgaria's Grigor 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." 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.
