This Roger Federer Tweener Was Pretty Sweet…But He Still Lost to Andreas Seppi (Video)
Roger Federer got upset at the Australian Open on Friday. The #2 seed lost in four sets to a very impressive Andreas Seppi of Italy. It’s the first time he hasn’t reached the semifinals at the Aussie Open in 12 years, which is crazy.
Most tennis fans watching around the world—and especially the folks in Melbourne—are probably disappointed by this. Federer is probably the greatest tennis player of all time. Most fans could care less that he won’t add to his all-time best 17 Grand Slam titles, but the man is a pleasure to watch. The loss to Seppi deprives us of two or three more high-level Federer matches.
On the bright side, even when Federer gets ousted relatively early in a Grand Slam tournament, he gets ousted in style. And today he left us with yet another sweet Roger Federer tweener.
Take a look:
As always, Federer makes it look so easy.
And bonus points for his on-court fashion. The guy looks good in tennis ball green.
