Marin Cilic the latest big gun to crash out of US Open

Shock Cilic exit ensures there’ll be new Grand Slam finalist at the US Open

It was a landmark victory for Schwartzman, one of the smallest men on the tour at 5ft 7in, who is through to the fourth round at a slam for the first time.

Schwartzman's next opponent is French 16th seed Lucas Pouille, who also came from a set down to defeat qualifier Mikhail Kukushkin in four sets.

"You know, I'm a real professional because I've been doing this a long time", she said in her post-match press conference.

His loss means there will be a first-time Grand Slam finalist this year from the bottom half of the draw. After losing so many players in the run up to the tournament, the men's draw promise to be the most intriguing US Open in years, and it has certainly lived up to expectation.

Elsewhere, Britain's hopes were ended after Kyle Edmund was forced to retire against Canadian Denis Shapovalov after picking up a neck injury during the third set. "He was playing good tennis", Shapovalov said. "I try to improve every week and I'm really happy". But Zverev cited his struggles against 710th-ranked Thai-Son Kwiatkowski in a first-round five-setter as a sign that rankings were not predictive, but rather temporary temperature readings of a player's form.

He converted nine of 20 break points and was aided by a whopping 80 unforced errors from the 2014 champion, who entered the tournament short on match play after having skipped Montreal and Cincinnati due to injury. "Hopefully it's nothing too serious", said Shapovalov.

Shapovalov will meet the 12th-seeded Pablo Carreno Busta (pictured below) next, as the Spaniard moved past Nicolas Mahut 6-3, 6-4, 6-3 on Friday. Many young players are playing unbelievable tennis.

Baby news from Florida turned heads at the year's final Grand Slam event as Williams, a 23-time Grand Slam champion, gave birth to the child she was pregnant with when she won the Australian Open in January.

"Obviously I'm super-excited", United States ninth seed Venus said. Every time in the third set, as well. "Words can't describe" during a pre-match interview with the host broadcaster, ESPN.

"Someone that's going to be now in the quarters or semis at the U.S. Open this year might be the next top-five player 14 months from now or something", he said. Only current number one Karolina Pliskova and fourth-seeded Elina Svitolina could deny her reaching the top for the first time.

The 2017 U.S. Open spotlight returns to the lower half of the bracket on Friday as competitors attempt to book a place in the fourth round.

The fifth, Simona Halep, lost in the first round to Maria Sharapova.

Sharapova, the 2006 US Open victor, has already beaten Halep and Hungary's Timea Babos in her first Grand Slam since serving a 15-month doping ban after testing positive for the blood booster meldonium, at the 2016 Australian Open.

It was only the 19th match of the year for Kvitova, who missed the first half of the season after she was cut on her left hand - the one she holds her racket with - during an attack by a knife-wielding intruder at her home in the Czech Republic in December.
