Cincinnati, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 16th Aug, 2019 ) :Seven-time champion and third seed Roger Federer was knocked out of the Cincinnati Masters by world number 70 Andrey Rublev in the third round on Thursday.
Rublev won 6-3, 6-4 and will face fellow Russian Daniil Medvedev, the ninth seed, for a place in the semi-finals.
Federer, 38, will now head into the US Open later this month with just two matches on hard courts under his belt.
Rublev, 21, took less than an hour to earn his second top-five win in a month after beating Dominic Thiem in Hamburg on his way to the final.
