Beijing, Aug 14 (DPA) Roger Federer continued his horror season, crashing out of the Beijing Olympics to American James Blake 6-4 7-6 (7-2) after a rain-hit quarter-final match Thursday. The Swiss, who has not won a major title in a year, was counting on the Games to help revitalise this season. He will now have to swallow disappointment again and aim for the US Open, where he won the trophy a year ago.
