It's like watching Pete Sampras lose to Georg Bastl all over again.
I suppose it's only to be expected given that Federer's days of absolute and total all-court domination are long behind him. But it's still really painful to see the greatest tennis player of all time- perhaps the greatest athlete of all time- knocked out like this so early in the sport's greatest event.
I just hope that, like Sampras before him, Federer can come back and win that one last Wimbledon to add to his staggering collection of silverware before he finally calls time on his glittering career.
