For the first time since 2005, Roger Federer has failed to reach the final in a grand slam. I had a feeling that he might not anyway, he has not been in his supreme form throughout the Australian Open.I have always wondered how he kept himself motivated having won so many grand slam titles. Being the best must be so lonely and more so when you have been the best for the past three years. May be this is a good break for him to give himself some motivation to do better next time. But it is of course a little disappointing for the fans because everyone expects to see him win the title. Personally, I am not too bothered. I still think he is the best player out there and he is only 26, he has many years to come to stay in the game. No matter what happens from now on, he will always be remembered as one of the best tennis player ever, and perhaps the most deserved winner.
