Match of the day: Federer defeats Falla 5-7 4-6 6-4 7-6 6-0 in 3hrs 18min
It could have been Falla’s biggest win of his career, instead it will remain his cruelest defeat ever. World number 60, Alejandro Fallo never reached an ATP final, his best result in a Grand Slam is a third round at this year’s Australian Open, however he was just a couple points away to cause the biggest upest in tennis history: he lead Federer by 2 sets to love with 4 break points at 4-4 in the third, and served for the match at 5-4 in the fourth. But suddenly he woke up, realized what he was up to and choked.
A really disappointing performance by Federer who never looked like the 16th Grand Slam champion he is.

Did you watch Federer’s match? What do you think of his poor start? Is he still the favorite for the title? Please vote.

There was much less drama for last year’s runner-up Andy Roddick and for come-back queens Kim Clijsters and Justine Henin who qualified easily in straight sets.

Seeds upsets: Francesca Schiavone, Ivan Ljubicic, Marin Cilic
