Federer yields another set on the way to the third round

Federer had to go back to Bosnian Dzumhur as he did in his debut against the Nagal Indian. He had only lost one set in each of the first two games in 2017.


Roger Federer is not precisely displaying the good feelings, "the best in a long time", with which he said he faced the US Open this year. 2 In the first round he lost the first set against the unknown Indian tennis player of the previous Sumit Nagal (22 years and 190º of the world), although then it passed over him in the next three. And this Wednesday he did exactly the same against the Bosnian Damir Dzumhur (27 and 99º), which he beat by 3-6, 6-2, 6-3 and 6-4 in 2h: 22. Last night he expected a rival for the third round: Pouille or Evans, both dangerous. 444444

Federer had only left at least one set in each of the first two matches of the tournament in one of his previous 18 participations. It was in 2017, when he had to play five sleeves to beat Tiafoe and Youzhny. That championship did not end well for him, because Del Potro appealed to him in quarters. 2

"It is a bit frustrating, especially when the level is so low, there are so many mistakes and the energy does not appear," he said , but also looked at the positive side: "I can do better, so great to move forward." The numbers of the star were not bad in the offensive aspect: 58 winning strokes, 16 of direct throw. But they failed to deal with the ball: 45 unforced errors. In addition, his opponent played much of the game with discomfort in the abdominal area. It is clear that Federer needs to improve, because if he enters another game with a heavier opponent, he may have a hard time tracing.
