Down goes Federer in Rotterdam

Here the big THUD!  I did, and I did not enjoy hearing it.  That was the sound of Roger Federer falling to Julien Benneteau in straight sets in Rotterdam, 3 – 6, 5 – 7.  This is the second time the 31 year old Frenchman has defeated Roger.  Fed was decidedly off his game and with a dismal second serve percentage, well, let’s just say that is going to need to get corrected before the Paribas Open in Indian Well, CA where all of the big four will be in attendance.  Disappointed, I never enjoy seeing Roger Federer lose.

In WTA news, Serena William has regained the world #1 ranking.  She came from one set down to defeat Petra Kvitova, 3 – 6, 6- 3, 7 -5 at the Qatar Open.  She now heads into the semifinals knowing no matter what, she will once again be the #1 women’s player in the world.  Well deserved…
