ATP Tour. In the coming days and weeks there's bound to be a great deal of speculation about what this means for Federer in the long term. There certainly was a ragged quality to parts of his game in the late stages, as he struggled to keep both an unruly forehand and his backhand in line.
Ah, there's that magic number, and that issue that will hang over Federer's head until the day he decides to call it quits.
Some, as eager to identify the moment a champion fails as the moment he first triumphs, may say this could be the beginning of the end. It certainly was a big lead he let slip, the first match he lost in five sets after winning the first two since Novak Djokovic came back to eliminate him in the U.
Open semis of But this was a quarterfinal at a Wimbledon where Federer had literally ripped through four previous matches.
And Anderson is a lean and sinewy ball punisher, a year-old who has worked tirelessly and more or less anonymously to become a Top 10 staple.
No shame in losing to a player in that group by any score or number of sets on Wimbledon grass. I have no idea. Of course the goal is to come back here next year.
I'm all right. I'm just disappointed now. It's probably a good sign for those hoping to see Federer gambol across these lawns again that he admits that the infrequent losses hurt more as time goes on, "It motivates me to do extremely well because I don't want to sit here and explain my loss.
That's the worst feeling you can have as a tennis player. Hope for a great tennis lesson for him. Got up at am, looked at my screen and when I saw , I checked the result on two websites to be sure.
Just watched the replay of the match. A fantastic performance from Fed! The ping-pong point at the net can be added to the Raz Ols points selection!
And I hope it will be fun against Shapo tonight … in the middle of the night again… Yees …. Did you see the ping-pong point from reverse Kevin side?
What a point that was! Just getting that return back, with the stretch when he first approached the net, was amazing.
Maestro Roger is really enjoying himself! For me, having two Canadian teens in the semis is great. They both have talent and are nice people.
They both had Fed as their idol, so a dream come true. Shapo is a bigger risk taker which can be good and bad. Awesome for tennis in Canada.
They are making national news along with Andreescu. Roger seems to like this court and the set-up in the stadium. Playing some entertaining tennis this week.
Heaven on earth. Great movement and magical shots that only Roger can make, coupled with loads of unforced from Kevin made this an easier win that what I worried about.
Shapo is finally playing up to his potential and getting better with experience. Especially if he can get a good start. Next Gen is still definitely ….
Yes, the Big Three. I wonder when was the last time that it was Federer, Djokovic and Nadal? And Fed moves to 1 in the Race if he wins Miami. Pretty amazing really.
Nice analysis. I do enjoy when Fed beats Anderson. I sense Kelsey Anderson is not a Fed fan? I remember in one of their earlier meetings, she was writing blogs about tennis wife life on some site, so I tweeted if she was going to reveal in her next post how much Kando paid for the tennis lesson as Fed made him look clueless.
He went to the towel every time after his serve, drove me crazy. Use your wrist bands, your shirt if you must but every time.
I hope they change the rule so players have to get it themselves and still have to serve within the 25 second clock. Maybe not Isner vs Karlovic, but a big server vs someone else, fun.
I guess the pressure got to him after 7 matches in a row. So Isner it is.
