Roger Federer out at Miami Open


KEY BISCAYNE, FLA.

Roger Federer lost his second match in a row Saturday following a 17-0 start to the year, this time squandering a lead against a qualifier ranked 175th. Federer was eliminated at the Miami Open by big-serving Thanasi Kokkinakis of Australia, 3-6, 6-3, 7-6 (4).

Kokkinakis became the lowest-ranked man to beat a No. 1 player since No. 178 Francisco Clavet upset Lleyton Hewitt in 2003.
