Roger’s lucky break

Mercury (Hobart) - - SPORT TRIATHLON -

ROGER Fed­erer has been ac­cused of re­ceiv­ing um­pire “favouritism” by Span­ish world No.28 Bautista Agut af­ter the ten­nis le­gend ad­vanced to the Shang­hai Masters quar­ter-fi­nals. Agut lashed out at the um­pires af­ter his suc­cess­ful fore­hand was called out by a lines­man in the de­cid­ing set, forc­ing the point to be re­played. Fed­erer then broke Agut’s serve and went on to take the set 6-4. “It is not the first time that favouritism has oc­curred,” Agut said. “I do not think I lost by that ball, but in my opin­ion I do not think the ref­eree was right.”
