[text-box] For the second consecutive year, Roger Federer is ousted in the quarterfinal round at Wimbledon. Federer was defeated in five sets by France’s Jo-Wilfried Tsonga this afternoon at the All England Club in London.
The sixteen-time Grand Slam winner has won 6 Wimbledon titles, second all-time behind Pete Sampras, but hasn’t won the coveted title since 2009. With 67 total titles, Federer is regarded as the best tennis player ever by many analysts. Federer, currently ranked third in the world, will be 30 in August, an age that marks the beginning of the end for most professional tennis players. [/text-box]
