New York: Roger Federer lost in the fourth round of the U.S. Open for the first time in a decade, surprisingly beaten 7-6 (3), 6-3, 6-4 by 19th-seeded Tommy Robredo of Spain on Monday night.

Right from the start, Federer looked very little like the player who has won 17 Grand Slam singles titles. (Related: Day 8 at the US Open, in pics)

In the opening game of his fourth-round match at the U.S. Open, he got passed at the net twice, sailed a backhand long, then missed two forehands to get broken. In the second game, the man who has spent more weeks ranked No. 1 than anyone else dumped a backhand into the net, then shanked two other backhands several feet wide.
