Roger Federer was made to look ‘ordinary’ during his humbling Wimbledon defeat to Hubert Hurkacz and the match was further evidence that his fear factor is fading.

That is the opinion of seven-time Grand Slam champion Mats Wilander, who was shocked by the manner of Federer’s exit at the All England Club.

‘He (Hurkacz) was just too good today,’ Wilander told Eurosport. ‘Federer is obviously not at his best at the moment.

‘But Hurkacz just made him look ordinary for once; he is a really, really good tennis player.

‘When you have a lack of matches, you can have a bit of a lack of confidence. When your forehand is not working, it’s not easy to fall back on the rest of your game when your number one strength is not working perfectly.

‘The intimidation factor is starting to fade away with Federer, as it does for everyone – but more than anything, Hurkacz played an unbelievably solid game and he deserved to win. He handled the nerves extremely well.’
