This loss isnt as bad as some people on the web are making out. The previous 2 losses were a lot worse.
Like Tyler Durden said, its not about if it was an upset or not, I'm honestly not surprised by this result. he lost in straights sets to a worse player in Hamburg and Brands took a set off him in R2.
The issue here is about Federer's form, they way he is playing atm, the recent losses.
