After initial struggles in the first two rounds of the US Open, Roger Federer produced his best form in the tournament so far, as he outlasted Feliciano Lopez in straight sets to win the tie with the scoreline 6-3, 6-3, 7-5.

The Swiss ace looked a bit nervy against Frances Tiafoe and Mikhail Youzhny in round one and two respectively, with both matches going to five sets, although Federer ended on the winning side on both occasions.

With the dominant display at the Arthur Ashe Stadium against the Spanish counterpart, it can be assumed vintage Federer has returned to his absolute best.

The world number three is well on course of reaching the final, although there is still some way to go 'till it comes to fruition.

However, if Federer manages to secure a place in the final of the Grand Slam tournament, he will have some advantages over his rival for sure.

'Till now, the tennis maestro has come up against opponents who has never beaten him in the past, which he aims to continue with Philipp Kohlschreiber in the fourth round, having a record of 12-0 against the German.

If he comes up as the victor on Monday, Federer then faces a tough draw against the likes of Argentine star Juan Martin del Porto, who had beaten him in the 2009 final, or Dominic Thiem, with a possible semi-final clash against Rafael Nadal as well.

Reaching the final would mean the 36-year-old will fancy his chances to win his 20th Grand Slam, as meeting against the remaining players on the bottom half of the draw have resulted in victories for the Swiss on every outing.

Diego Schwartzman, Pablo Carreno Busta, and Kevin Anderson have all qualified for the quarter-finals, while Sam Querrey secured a comfortable 6-2, 6-2, 6-1 win over Mischa Zverev to book his place against Anderson.

None of the above mentioned players have been able to outshine the former world number one when they faced off in earlier competitions.

Nonetheless, the upcoming days are bound to produce some breathtaking actions on the court in New York as fans gear up to witness some masterclass performances from Roger Federer, who has another Grand Slam title in his line of sight.
