Federer handed shock defeat by Russian qualifier Rublev

Russian qualifier Andrey Rublev required only 62 minutes to see off Roger Federer 6-3 6-4 in the third round of the Cincinnati Masters handing the Swiss 20-time Grand Slam champion his quickest defeat in 16 years since losing to Franco Squillari in 54 minutes in 2003. 21-year-old Rublev, who broke Federer in his first two service games, was seen shading tears of joy after securing the biggest win of his career.
