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.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

Whatever the reason for the flow of losses to lower ranked players, I hope he has enough mentality to retire on top rather than tarnishing his legacy by clinging on to fleeting hope. Become a Davis Cup coach for the Swiss and start a coaching clinic.

Still, I'm not going to put him out of contention for the US Open.

To be honest if it means not playing for a few more years, then I say do it, retire on top

Fognini will face Robredo in the final in Umag.

Another title for Fognini?

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

If he wins, he would have 3 straight titles in 3 straight weeks

Has this ever happened?

Del Potro won 4 tournaments in a row in 06 or 07 I think.
