Seppi Sends Federer Out Of Australian Open

Four-time champion Roger Federer saw his dream of winning the first grand slam of the new year slipped away on Friday, 23 January, as he was knocked out in the third round of the Australian Open by unheralded Italian Andreas Seppi.
The 33-year-old Swiss second seed went down 6-4 7-6 4-6 7-6 (7-5) to Seppi, who is ranked 46 in the world.
Seppi, 30, had never beaten the 17-time Grand Slam champion in 10 previous meetings and his win ends a 23-match losing streak against top 10 opponents.
“I just tried my best and it was one of my best matches for sure,” Seppi told bbc.
