No weak players around in 2013 then :whistle:

I have a feeling doubt is settling in Federer's mind now and he might be thinking if its time to call quits. I hear he's playing Brisbane next year so I'm not sure how soon the announcement will come.

Ya gotta wonder.
For one so confident and used to winning easily against the lower ranks, it will be interesting to see how long he is willing to tolerate the losses.

medwatt:
He has lost 3 matches to 3 players with 2 of them above 100 in the ranking and 1 at 55. I read that Fed attributes the loses to back injury. How much credible is the story I do not know. Fed doesn't just lose to 3 lowly-ranked players in a row too often so its impossible to say he's claim is just an excuse. The only other time I remember such thing happened was in 2008 when he lost to Nalbandian and Fish in straight sets but those guys had already proving that they can beat anyone on a given day. So this is new territory for Fed losing in a row to 3 guys with one barely having 4 lower-tier titles.
Its surprising to see the discrepancy in his form from last year. It all began with losing the WTF to Djokovic in straight sets and wasting his time playing those exhibitions in Brasil instead of either resting or trying to improve.
