Aussie Has Priorities Straight After Shocking Federer At US Open

John Millman progressed to the quarter-finals of the US Open with the performance of his career in the early hours of Tuesday.

The Australian pulled off a shock win against Roger Federer, defeating the world number two in four sets.

Millman is ranked 55th in the world and had never beaten an opponent in the top 10 - he was not expected to put up much of a fight against one of the all-time greats.

After losing the first set, he roared back to win the next three.

Though he will face Novak Djokovic in the next round, the 29-year-old had other matters on his mind post-match: it's NFL fantasy draft time.

The victory came in the early hours of the morning but all that was on Millman's mind was his draft ahead of Thursday's first game of the NFL season.

"It's 1am now, I should probably try to get a recovery," Millman told ESPN.

"I've got a 7am fantasy draft, so I'm going to get up for that and hopefully have a good draft.

"I'm second pick; I don't know whether to go Gurley or Le'Veon Bell."
