The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS -

Top seed Roger Fed­erer lost in the sec­ond round of the Madrid Open to 20-year-old Aus­tralian Nick Kyr­gios.

The Swiss world num­ber two, a three­time win­ner of the tour­na­ment, was beaten 7-6 (7-2) 6-7 (7-5) 6-7 (14-12).

"My prob­lem was I couldn't re­turn his first serve," said Fed­erer, who won only 18 of 85 first serve re­turn points. "It was just a hor­ri­ble per­for­mance on the re­turn. That's what cost me the match."
