Federer Loses!!!

Yesterday night I hear the news that Federer has lost.(Sorry for my ignorance match happened on Sunday) at Indian Wells. I couldn't believe my ears. He lost to Argentine Guillermo Canas 75 62 thus ended his 41 matches winless streak just 5 matches short of setting a new open-era record for the longest winning streak.

Canas has come back after serving a 15month drug suspension, though he was banned for 2 years but he had successfully got that cut to 15 months. He argued that the substance was contained in medication given to him by tournament officials. The ban started in June 2005 and ended in September 2006 . This is his first Masters Series tournament since 2004 after his comeback from the suspension

Federer said
He was just a guy who put me away when he had to,"
Roger is 3730 points ahead of Nadal in the ATP ranking, the lead melt by 500 points but still stay huge. After all he is a human. Probably this will make the tournament more interesting in the sense that all others will fight for it otherwise Federer would have been way ahead of them to even think of beating as he was champion here for the last 3 years.
