Federer beats Jaziri at Dubai Championships
MANILA, Philippines – Roger Federer surprisingly dropped the first set against little-known Malek Jaziri before putting the Tunisian in his place to reach the second round of the Dubai Championships.
Jaziri, ranked 128th in the world, has not played a match on the ATP Tour for six months, but that did not stop him from snatching the first set from the 17-time Grand Slam champion.
But Jaziri’s dreams of beating Federer were stopped as the Swiss maestro exacted revenge by racing through the next two sets. -- Mornings @ ANC, February 26, 2013
