2014 US Open QF: Federer defeats Monfils

So close, so far… Gael Monfils was ahead two sets to one, 5-4 in the fourth set with two match points on Federer’s serve. The Swiss saved both match points and then won five games in a row to take control of the match. Monfils gave up mentally and physically in the fifth set and Federer won 4-6 3-6 6-4 7-5 6-2 to reach the semi-finals.

It was only the second time in his career that Roger Federer had rallied from match point down to win in a Grand Slam tournament.

Federer will face Marin Cilic on Saturday.
