At what moment did Federer tweak his back?

Heard talk it was in the second set against Zverev in the Montreal final. Anyone know what moment? Was it visible?

Re: At what moment did Federer tweak his back?

I don't think the moment it happened was very visible (in the sense that he didn't fall over or anything dramatic like that), but it was very visible the point at which the pain was beginning to affect his movement - if I'm remembering correctly it was roughly around 2-2 in the second set. They played a very long rally around then where Federer was moved from side to side a lot - maybe he stretched a little too far in one of those defensive shots. From his next service game you could see his serve speed drop and his walk between points looked a little "stiff".

I think he started the match feeling it. I remember ESPN showing Federer's avg FH speed in the first set was only 68mph. I think as the match progressed it just got worse.

Re: At what moment did Federer tweak his back?

At some point mid-game when he got broken in the second set. After a long point Fed stopped bending his back when serving and pretty much served standing. Then when returning he didn't do his usual racket spinning and bending down and basically hopped from left to right in an upright position the following game.

If you go back and watch, Roger grabbed his back after a serve early in his first set against Ferrer. When it happened I posted the following in the commentary thread. "Federer was grabbing his back. Looks like an injury but there is no way Roger does the right thing. He should default. Too proud."

Re: At what moment did Federer tweak his back?

Roger was boasting all week how he'd made very little preparations going into the tournament and it seems he's paying the price for it. Hopefully he'll recover in time to be fit and prepared for the US Open AND in the further future he won't be entering events with little to no preparation.

It seems losing to Daveed would have been a blessing in disguise.

I missed that one but Roger's serve was affected in the Ferrer match and all the following ones. Late in the Zverev match the serve was gone. I don't think there is any chance for number 20 this year. It's very unfortunate.

Re: At what moment did Federer tweak his back?

I didn't notice it during the Ferrer match but I thought I heard someone say it was actually during a practice session. Not sure it makes a difference...he wasn't playing great all week but managed to win his matches up to the Final, and even that one was just a break each set.

That moment in the final was obvious to the audience on site, I've been told directly.

I think so too. As big as Federer's ego is, he just couldn't take the loss in a masters final on his most successful surface by a twenty years old.
