Sneaky feeling he's not well. His injury might be flaring up. He's now played 4 or 5 mediocre to poor matches in a row.

Apparently he's announced he's skipping the entire clay court season. Hope Serena doesn't skip it though.

Roger Federer has played his last match until early June, it emerged on Saturday night, as the world No. 1 suffered a shock defeat to Australian qualifier Thanasi Kokkinakis and then announced that he will be skipping the entirety of the clay-court season.

It had been thought that Rafael Nadal’s recent struggles with injury might encourage Federer to have a crack at the French Open, his least successful grand slam by far. But Federer – who will hand the No. 1 position back to Nadal when the next set of rankings are published tomorrow week – told reporters “I decided not to play [on clay].”

Federer’s defeat was a bitter pill for the Miami Open, which had earlier been challenged by Caroline Wozniacki to take a hard line on abusive fans. The man himself looked disgusted at his unusually erratic performance, which brought him a second defeat in consecutive matches for the first time since the spring of 2014.

“I wasn't feeling good,” said Federer. “With my movement, things weren't absolutely working. I feel like every time I had chances, something bad happened: wrong decision-making by me, good decision-making by him. I don’t know why I could never get to any level that I was happy with today.”

Roger Federer will lose his world number one spot after defeat at the Miami Open - and has announced he will miss the clay court season, including the French Open.

The 36-year-old, who suffered a shock 3-6 6-3 7-6 (7-4) loss to world number 175 Thanasi Kokkinakis in Miami, did not play on clay last season either.

Last year, he won Wimbledon after returning from his break.

The Swiss will be replaced by Rafael Nadal at the top of the new rankings.

On losing his world number one position, Federer - the defending Miami champion - said: "I deserve it after this match. I feel so bad."

After the defeat, he added: "I decided not to play the clay season."

Federer, who won his 20th Grand Slam at the Australian Open in January, began in typically assured style but was worn down by Australian qualifier Kokkinakis, 21, who won in two hours 21 minutes.

It was Federer's second loss in six days - he saw a 17-match unbeaten run come to an end in a gruelling match with Juan Martin del Potro in Indian Wells last weekend.

In Miami, he was up against another angular opponent in Kokkinakis, who used a vicious top-spin forehand to devastating effect.

"It felt like every time I had chances, something bad happened - wrong decision making by me, good decisions from him," he said.

"It's disappointing, I don't know why I could never get to a level I was happy with."

Five people had Federer or Djokovic as uWP...

I am not known for picking ATP uWP. :)
That Nole dude disappeared since the ban of Meldonium. Just a coincidence, folks.

Drama. Nonsense.
I'm hoping the Novak will snap out of it.

Also, what I hate about the ATP fandom and press is that it is almost seen as
sacrilege to beat the top guys. If you do, it must be because they are injured.
Oh, and heaven forbid if you beat them and are not bowing and scraping at their
altar with all humility and reverence as to a deity, most especially Federer. I find it
nauseating.

Novak got too catwalk skinny. Even Paris thought he was too skinny and they're next level into skinny. In the modeling world, there's skinny, and then there's Paris skinny. Novak superseded that.
