In His Hometown Tournament, Federer Loses to Djokovic (New York Times)

 

Top-ranked Roger Federer lost his hometown tournament in Basel, Switzerland, on Sunday, falling to Novak Djokovic of Serbia, 6-4, 4-6, 6-2, in the Swiss Indoors final.

 

Djokovic, seeded second, earned his fourth tournament win of the season by ending Federer’s run of three straight titles at the tournament.

 

“It’s disappointing to lose at home in the finals, no doubt,” Federer said. “I thought I missed plenty of opportunities. I’m not looking for excuses. He played tough and he played well when he had to, and saved a ton of break points that were crucial.”

Roger seems better able to win the GS tournies than these shorter ones (look at the other 2009 ATP 500 and 1000 matches where it was 2 of 3 sets, he didn't win many (any?). With the French Open and then Wimbledon and the US Open (until the final) he pla

I believe it's too tough for our Roger to win any, with now more mature top players. Perhaps it's one of the most competitive ages in the history of tennis, worst still, all these players are young and vivid.

Be honest, I hope our Roger could even get
