The return to Halle of the Swiss champion and twenty-time Grand Slam winner Roger Federer lasted much shorter than expected with the Swiss tennis player who succumbed in three sets to the young Canadian talent Felix Auger Aliassime.
Beyond the tennis player’s performance, what appeared strange and in some ways worrying was Roger’s attitude on the pitch, disheartened and now resigned in the third set to a fate that seemed almost obvious. In addition, the media appeared concerned that Federer delayed his press conference by two and a half hours.
Federer was thoroughly disappointed in the aftermath of his defeat
Roger Federer crashed out of the 2021 Noventi Open in Halle on Wednesday with a 6-4, 3-6, 2-6 loss at the hands of Felix Auger-Aliassime. The Swiss, who beat Ilya Ivashka in the first round on his comeback on grass, played some uninspiring in the second and third sets against Auger-Aliassime.
“I felt like I needed time to digest the third set,” Roger Federer said. “I was unhappy how it ended, was similar to Geneva one. I rather keep it short and simple, I rather take my time to come in, not sweaty and in the heat of it.
Not sure what I’m gonna say in these moments, that’s the reason why (I was late). I was very negative, which is not my style,” Roger Federer continued. “My attitude was bad, I’m not proud of it. That was disappointing.
I don’t want to make any stupid decisions now. We are now going back to Switzerland and have time to discuss what the next steps are.” While Federer was expected to demolish the Canadian both from the baseline and at the net, Auger-Aliassime denied the Swiss Maestro of that opportunity.
Instead, the 20-time grand slam champion was defeated by Felix in three sets 4-6,6-3,6-2. In a year where the Swiss star played just eight matches on-tour ahead of Wimbledon, the chances of clinching his favorite grand slam trophy are diminishing.
Even though a sample size of 8 matches is too small to draw conclusions, it’s going to be a tough Wimbledon for Federer as he battles recovery and stiff competition from other players. So, what are Federer’s chance of winning his 21st major title at Wimbledon? In such a competitive locker room, it becomes incredibly hard for a player, recovering from two knee surgeries to witness success straight away.
The second-round defeat at Halle to Felix Auger-Aliassime surprised many because it came on grass, Federer’s favorite surface. But, the Swiss Maestro enjoys a healthy win percentage of 87 on grass, which is the best for any player in the Open Era. For Federer to have a deep run, the draw at SW19 this year holds significance.

Nick Kyrgios tells Novak Djokovic’s father not to ‘push the blame’ onto Grigor Dimitrov
The fallout from the Adria Tour continues with Nick Kyrgios hitting back at Novak Djokovic’s father for trying to “push the blame” onto Grigor Dimitrov following a string of positive coronavirus tests.
The controversial tournament, the brainchild of 17-time Grand Slam winner Djokovic, took place in Serbia and Croatia despite the Covid-19 pandemic.
Players and fans did not wear facemasks during events and did not adhere to social distance rules with Djokovic insisting that they were following guidelines set out by the Serbia government.
The first big bombshell dropped on Sunday evening when world No 19 Dimitrov confirmed he returned a positive coronavirus test after returning home to Monaco, and Borna Coric and Viktor Troicki also tested positive, but the latter two were still in Croatia.
World No 1 Djokovic added his name to the list when he announced on Tuesday that both he and his wife Jelena tested positive for Covid-19 after they flew back to Serbia.

“He inflicted damage to both Croatia and to us as a family in Serbia.
“Nobody is feeling well because of this situation.”
Kyrgios, who has been very outspoken about the Adria Tour, hit back at Srdjan in an Instagram Story as he wrote ” don’t push the blame”.
