GENEVA (AP) Roger Federer lost his comeback match after two months away from tour on Tuesday, falling to Pablo Andujar 6-4, 4-6, 6-4 in the second round of the Geneva Open.

His first match on clay in almost two years kept him on court for almost two hours in only his second tournament since the 2020 Australian Open. The past 15 months have included two surgeries on his right knee.

"It (losing) never feels great," Federer said. "Looking at the long road that I have been on from the comeback, sure it's rewarding to be back on a tennis court but you know I expect better from myself."
