Roger Federer lost to Andy Murray in the first round of the Dubai Tennis Championships in three sets, 7-6 (6), 3-6, 4-6. There have been whispers of Roger’s dominance coming to an end for months now, but this loss could turn that whisper into a scream. This is the second time in the past 4 months that R-Fed has lost back to back matches. The younger players are now stepping up to the challenge imposed by Federer… and they’re winning. This could mark the beginning of the end for Federer’s era of dominance.
