A very sad months passed for me as a tennis fan, seeing Federer defeated at the quarters, for the second consecutive Grandslam tournament. For the first time since 2004 French Open, Federer's name was missing in Semi-Finals list. For a player to make 18 out of 19 slam finals and then scrape his way to 2 consecutive QF's, the warning lights must be flashing. If Rolland Garros is an alarm, given he is ordinary in clay, losing in his comfortable turf, Wimbledon is the first nail in coffin.
Roger was too passive on court, this Wimbledon. This talk of the end of Feder-era could be disspelled quickly if he wins at Flushing Meadows but i suspect the comeback wont be as great as in 2009. Even my confidence in him winning back the US Open is dripping. I, like everyone would love to be proven wrong.
PS: Not a big post this time, left short of words like my God.
