Roger Federer's hopes of winning a sixth US Open title ended with a shock fourth-round defeat by Spain's Tommy Robredo in New York last night.

The 32-year-old Swiss, who lost in the second round of Wimbledon two months ago, went down 7-6, 6-3, 6-4 in the Louis Armstrong Stadium.
Federer converted just two of 16 break points and made 43 unforced errors - 20 on his favoured forehand side - as he lost in two hours and 24 minutes.
It means a much-anticipated first meeting between Federer and Spaniard Rafael Nadal at Flushing Meadows will not happen as Robredo progresses to the quarterfinals.
And later in the night Nadal came from a set down to beat Germany’s Philipp Kohlschreiber 6-7, 6-4, 6-3, 6-1.
