Even after winning all 7 meetings against Dimitrov, it wasn’t assured that Dimitrov couldn’t put up a phenomenal cameback on the Swiss, as he came back on an absolutely amazing 3-6 6-4 3-6 6-4 6-2 win in New York.
Federer’s injury can be a factor in his lost, as he needed back injury treatment at the ending stage of the game.
Dimitrov is now set to play Russian Daniil Medvedev in the last four.
“I feel low. I’m disappointed it is over because I feel as I though I was playing well,
“It is a missed opportunity. I thought if I could get through I’d have two days off after.
“I felt it the whole time, but I was able to play.” Federer said.
Rafael Nadal now has the highest potential to become the ultimate winner after long-time rival in tennis, Federer’s exist this morning. And the loss of the defending champion Novak Djokovic after sustaining injury, rolls the trophy just a few steps away from Nadal.
