First he lost the exhibition to Rafa now more losses on clay! This is great! Its over Federer! No more titles for you. Ever! A wildcard? bwahahaha!
Roger Federer’s stuttering season on clay continued today when he was humbled 6-2, 6-4 by Italian wildcard Filippo Volandri in the Rome Masters.
Volandri, ranked No93 in the world, had won just five of his 14 matches this year. But he was far too good for a strangely subdued Federer, who made 44 unforced errors and converted just one of his seven break points.
The result means that World No1 Federer, who finished runner-up in Rome in 2003 and 2006, has now gone four tournaments without a title – his longest stretch without a victorious campaign since becoming world No1 in February 2004.
Just remember, Sampras’ downfall was signaled by loss to wild card as well.
