Basel R1: [1] Federer def. Krajinovic 6:2, 4:6, 6:4

Wow fed escaped a terrible choke job... leading 3:1 in the second having a 30:40 and then getting broken three times in a row. His serve was really terrible for the most part of the match. He even almost gave away a double break lead in the third but at 5:4 0:30 his first serve reappeared again...

I don`t remember the last time Federer struggled so much on his own serve.Must have been in some clay event some years ago.But indoors on a hardcourt i don`t remember.

When you need cheeting from umpires and toilet break to defeat guy who is injured ever since last Paris Masters. It must be that Rogie himself hasn't recovered yet from his hand injury


Also Krajiovic got CV when he cheered himself with loud Ideeemo!:bowdown:

Fed was really poor. Looks like he wants this year to already end. Certainly that level won't be winning the title as has been the case for his recent tournaments.

Federer- shit serve, shit ground game, shit net game, shit mental toughness. This mug is embarrassing himself with these pathetic performances. Struggling so bad against a challenger mug he should be routining 2 & 2. What a joke. Should he fluke his way to the final, Zverev or Cilic will destroy him. No 99th title coming anytime soon, if ever. Federer should be seriously considering hanging up his racquet because these type of performances can’t continue.

I think what's really happening is that Fed should've ended his season after Wimbledon but he's piling on by playing.
He should've resumed play at AO 19.

That was ugly. As much as Shapo seems fit for a battery recharge, the Swiss certainly looks like he'll benefit just as hard.
