Federer: Wimbledon Defeat Is Not The End

Federer: Wimbledon Defeat Is Not The End

Published at 1:06pm 30th June 2011. (Updated at 7:04pm 30th June 2011)

Roger Federer insists it is not the end of an era despite crashing out of Wimbledon in the quarter-finals for the second year running.

Federer lost to French 12th seed Jo Wilfried Tsonga in a five set thriller, prompting concerns that he will never win a record-equalling seventh title at SW19.

But the Swiss was happy with his performance and dismissed fears his game was on the wane: "It wasn't a shocking second round loss. It was a great match. To talk bad about (the match) would be unfortunate. I though I played great. I though Jo was excellent.

"There's no reason to look to far ahead to be quite honest."

His conqueror Tsonga now plays Novak Djokovic for a place in the final.
