John Millman attacked by bird poo during his match with Roger Federer! During the fourth set of the Australian Open 2020 third round match, a bird dropped on his court-side chair and a ball boy was called to clear the gift with a towel.
During the second set happened a similar thing when a drop of another bird fell near Millman, when he was about to serve. "Sorry Roger it's just right where I'm standing" said the Australina while the ball bay was cleaning.
Millman played a very great match, putting Federer in troubles during the whole challenge. The Swiss Maestro won at the super tie-break of the decisive set, with the final score of 4-6 7-6 (2) 6-4 4-6 7-6 (8), after more than four hours of play.
Federer recovered a break in the fifth set and, in the super-tiebreak, he was able to recover the disadvantage, despite Millman being on 8-5 and, despite the fact that during the whole tie-break he was almost always at a disadvantage. In the fourth round of the tournament Federer will face Marton Fucsovics
