Safin beating Federer (<a href=”http://news.ft.com/cms/s/44b8d832-707a-11d9-b572-00000e2511c8.html” target=”_new”>see my article here</a>) is not such a big deal. OK, it is, but let’s face it, Federer is still hitting a tennis ball like the other guy. He <b>had</b> to lose sometime. Safin might have won the final against Federer in Australia last year had he not had the draw from hell.<br />
Roger will still win a slam this year, possibly 3, but this was inevitable. Winning streaks never last for ever.
