Another disappointing loss to Federer

Federer bowed to his opponent Tommy Robredo who registered his first win against Federer in the last 11 encounters.
I kind of feel like I beat myself, you know, without taking any credit away from Tommy.Clearly he was making sure he was making many balls. It was up to me to make the difference and I couldn't. I kind of self destructed, which is very disappointing, especially on a quicker court. Your serve helps you out. You're going to make the difference somewhere. I just couldn't do it.  It was a frustrating performance today.It’s not that much of a disappointment at the end of the day. If I'm playing like this, I'm not going to beat Rafa, or Kohlschreiber, for that matter… I was fighting with other things in my match today.  Not thinking too far ahead of myself, especially the level I was playing at." - Roger Federer

Serious statement from Federer. Finally he expressed the reasons for his loss. I think he lose most of the times because of his UE(Unforced Errors). Federer missed many easy points today. But credit to Tommy Robredo who played some decent forehands.
I beat the best guy of all time... in a place that he loves to play, I'm delighted. I made the break points, he did not," - Tommy Robredo

Even Robredo not believed that he is going to win. He gave 16 break point opportunities and federer was able to convert just 2 and it is awful 13% of conversion rate which is very very frustrating and disappointing.

So FEDAL quarters done and it is Nadal vs Robredo and Ferrer vs Gasquet in the quarters.
