London Roger Federer's prelude to the ATP final was a complete failure. He was defeated in the thirteenth game 6: 7 (4: 7), 3: 6, starting with Nishikori, the ninth in the world. Before the two gladiators paid tribute to each of the huge London O2 arenas, they sounded from the speakers of the "legendary" song. But Roger Federer did not play like a legend. 1 hour and 28 minutes later, Basel's 37-year-old player missed 34 mistakes and 19 games.
With such a record, it is difficult to extract what is valuable at this level. Japan did not even need to shine for the first time in four years and six months in the final match against Federer. At first, neither of them found their rhythm. The fact that it came out in the first set without a single shot in the finals is due to a less good role than a bad return.
Lost tiebreak and many mistakes
In the final, Nishikori went ahead with a solid ball 6: 1. Federer was able to defeat the three-set ball, but the fourth time he made a mistake.
The first serving loss occurred only at the beginning of the second set, but disappeared in the second. For the Masters record winner, a 1: 0 break immediately melted into the air. Shortly after, the Japanese made another four knockout tournament. Federer could not recover it. In the next two service games in Asia, he only got one point. The defeat was blocked by a forehand mistake in 1 hour and 30 minutes.
Federer was weak in Basel and Paris-Bercy with strong results. This off means that she has not yet attended the top eight contests. He got a second chance against Dominic Thiem on Tuesday. (SDA)
