Roger Federer defeated by Pablo Andujar in 2nd round of Geneva Open

In tennis, 20-time Grand Slam champion Roger Federer was handed a shock defeat by world number 75 Pablo Andujar in the second round of Geneva Open. Spaniard Andujar defeated top-seeded Federer 6-4, 4-6, 6-4. Notably, the match was 39-year-old Federer’s first since March this year, and the tournament was his second in past 15 months. With this defeat, Federer’s 32-match winning streak on his Swiss soil ends.

Andujar could now face Dominic Stephan Stricker in the last eight after the 18-year-old wildcard stunned Marin Cilic on his ATP Tour debut.

Sixth-seeded Fabio Fognini of Italy beat Argentina’s Guido Pella 6-2, 6-2.
