There has been a massive, unexpected development at the US Open: The “Big 3” in the men’s singles draw is down to one. An ailing No. 3 Roger Federer was stunned by Grigor Dimitrov, with the unseeded Bulgarian advancing to the semifinals 3-6, 6-4, 3-6, 6-4, 6-2. . . . .It’s the first time Dimitrov has beaten Federer in 8 tries.
After the fourth set, Federer sought the trainer and left the court for a medical timeout [for his back and neck], a rarity coming from him. His level dropped in the fifth set. . . . . “Yeah, but this is Grigor’s moment and not my body’s moment, so… it’s OK.”
