Daniel Brands has shocked the Tennis world by upsetting future legend Roger Federer. Brands defeated Federer 6-3, 6-4 during the second round of the Swiss Open on Thursday, which is the third straight tournament the Tennis superstar made an early exit.
“I wasn’t consistent enough in the end,” said Federer. “He was serving well and I couldn’t do enough with my return.”
The loss dropped Federer’s world ranking to No.5, which is the lowest it’s been since he started his historic 17 Grand Slam singles title run at at Wimbledon in 2003. This is the first time he’s been back to Gstaad since he won a title there in 2004. “I’m happy that I was able to play because I’ve had problems for some time now, already in Hamburg,” Federer said. “But it didn’t get worse during today’s match.”
The Tennis great is headed to the Montreal Masters next before heading to the Cincinnati Masters to defend his title.
