Since winning his first Grand Slam, Federer has lost three sets or more in a grand slam before the quarterfinals in 5 grand slams.

09 French Open (lost 5) - won
10 Wimbledon (lost 3) - qf loss to Berdych
11 Australian (lost 3) - sf loss to Djokovic
12 French Open (lost 3) - sf loss to Djokovic
12 Wimbledon - (lost 3) - ????

Even as a Federer worshiper, things do not look promising.

Perhaps. But what about his record when losing 3 sets before a QF AND when Nadal is out early... 09 French Open. There's still hope!

I like how Fed fans are reaching all the way back to 2009 when he had to fight from 2 sets down just a few weeks ago.

Lost in straights to Djokovic.

Why do people keep bringing this up? When Nadal lost in the French, Federer had a CLEAR ROAD to the title.

Djokovic, the tournament favorite, is still playing.

bro calm down it was a joke. Well fans like to pick up whatever they can to cheer about right? the bigger issue is why do you have such a big problem with it?
