Double defending Australian Open champion Roger Federer was shown the exit door from the Australian Open by 20 year old Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas. In first professional meeting (they had met in the Hopman cup earlier this year) the world number 14 took out the 3rd seed in 4 tight sets.

Change of Guard?

Although it may be too early but this defeat of Roger Federer was reminiscent of the Swiss defeating Pete Sampras in the lawns of Wimbledon in 2001. At that time Sampras was the Men’s record holder of Grand Slam winning 14 trophies against his name.
