New York: After crashing out in the fourth round of the US Open against an opponent who had never before beaten him, 17-time Grand Slam winner Roger Federer shrugged off any notion he might quit after Monday's loss.

"I've definitely got to go back to work and come back stronger, get rid of this loss now as quick as I can, forget about it, because that's not how I want to play from here on," Federer said. (Also read: How Federer lost to Robredo)
