Ever since the Wimbledon defeat he does not seem to have gotten over it. Imagine, the World no 1, the giant of tennis, gets out in the second round of some tournament and then is unable to qualify for the quarterfinals of the Cincinnati Master’s! What just happened? Has his morale gone so down? Is it purely psychological or are there some physical factors? I read somewhere that he has been affected by a disease called mononucleosis ( which, apparently and interestingly , is also called the ‘kissing disease’). If it is that, I hope he gets well soon and once again begin the stride of his splendor which the world wishes to see more. These are trying times for Federer fans as they are for himself. On the contrary, Nadal his riding his winning horse in full fury and is poised to become the World No 1 which is all very good for him and for his fans including me. But, it is never ever interesting to see a former champ going down this way without even coming back and putting a fight. I just hope that this is a slight trough in Fedex’s career graph and that we will continue to witness the excellence of his tennis in the upcoming Olympics and the US Open.
