Colombian tennis player Alejandro Falla came close to a huge upset at Wimbledon but ended up losing 3-2 in sets to first-seeded defending champion Roger Federer.
Falla had a great start on court 1 and won the opening set 7-5. The second set ended 6-4 and the Colombian needed just one more set to win the match.
In that third set, the Cali-born player could have decided the match in his favor as he had four break-points on 4-4, but Federer somehow survived and won the set 6-4.
Falla then broke Federer early in the fourth set but choked when serving for victory. Federer broke back for 5-5 and went on to win the tie-break, 7-6.
The Colombian’s resistance was broken in the fifth set and Federer eased to a 6-0 set win, 3-2 in sets.
