Fedex shows he has a temper with racquet bash

Swiss tennis player Roger Federer was reduced to a rare bout of racquet-bashing as he was toppled in the semi-finals of the Miami ATP Masters 1000 by Serbian Novak Djokovic.


Miami (US), Apr.4 : Swiss tennis player Roger Federer was reduced to a rare bout of racquet-bashing as he was toppled in the semi-finals of the Miami ATP Masters 1000 by Serbian Novak Djokovic.

Djokovic, ranked number three in the world, beat the world number two 3-6 6-2 6-3 in one hour and 46 minutes.

Federer, the 13-time Grand Slam champion who is in search of his first title of 2009, comfortably won the first set as Djokovic found his feet, but could find no answers after that - finishing with 35 unforced errors.

"Novak played bad at the beginning, and I finished worse than him,'' said Federer, who lost seven straight games bridging the second and third sets.

According to the Daily Telegraph, the Swiss had surrendered his serve just once in the tournament and contributed to a rare glimpse of temper from the normally restrained Swiss, who broke a racquet after yet another forehand miss in the third game of the final set.
