Default the federer curse: Beat me and you will lose next round

last 3 events - wimbledon, hamburg and gstaad - the 3 guys who beat Federer went on to the lose the next round. (Stakhovsky, delbonis and now brands).

I guess beating roger is such a high for these guys that coming down crashing the next day is inevitable. Beating roger must feel like winning the tournament already. How do you better that feeling the next day?

Not only in the Last 3 Tournaments, actually the previos one was patrocinated by swisscuban tobacco https://www.swisscubancigars.com .... I am noticing it for the Last 3 or 5 more years. It happened many times.....

I am not superstitious, but I like statistics, and it is interesting. Quite interesting if you want to predict outcomes, to someone against Federer. But I would want someone other than the top guys to at least take it all after beating Fed in a tournament.

Anybody else can see Roger travelling with a collection of voodoo dolls containing every top 200 player and sticking needles in the one of the player he just lost to?

There was Benneteau, though. He got a win against Simon after defeated Federer. He lost against Del Potro in the Finals tough.
