I doubt we'll see a repeat of 2018 US Open. Totally different conditions in Melbourne compared to NYC. RLA favors Federer but maybe Millman will snatch a set.

Millman has played well in AO 2020, but his run should end in the third round. In his career, Millman has only one win against top-10 ever, the famous victory over Fed in USO 2018. It would be super-weird if Millman reached two top-10 victories, and both would be against Federer. However, Roger looks good this time, so I'm pretty certain it won't happen. The Swiss oldtimer in 3.

I expect this to run like the first set at USO when Federer still played more or less at his normal level. Federer should win comfortably in 3 or at most 4.

Most likely Fed in 3. Max 4 sets if he mugs it up.

Didn't Federer lose to Milman in USO because he somehow wanted to avoid another Djoker match up? Anyway, Fed should win easily this time.

This time is different. The USO condition was slow and humid and the Djokovic factor. Milkman don't have a serve and fast stroke to trouble Roger.

Roger in 3 I would think. Millman is a fighter though.

Fed could lose max 1 set if his level really dips. Nothing more than that. Krajinović was indeed gassed, but Roger played really well regardless of that, some nice, quick, early hitting HC tennis.

Sorry to break it to you. Champions like Fed (or Novak) do not think that way.
If 38 year old Federer did not avoid Rafa on Philippe Chatrier (the toughest challenge possible in tennis), there is no reason to avoid Nole at USO.

Federer struggled with Millman at Brisbane 2015 and in the first set of Halle 2019, so that US Open wasn't a complete fluke.
Millman has the game to do some damage to Federer.

Anyone who loses to Millman doesn't deserve to win Slams, lets be honest. Yes a tough player and so is Fucsovics but Fed has been given the best possible route to the semis. Not forgetting that any Slam match win at 38½ is special.

Aside from Ken Rosewall, and Jimmy Connor's semifinal run, are there any others?

Millman is kind of a bad match-up for Fred, but still, he has a massive cakewalk here.
