of Spain suffered a shock 1st round loss in the ATP 250 event in Bangkok to the German Benjamin Becker.
Becker on his day has the game to cause big upsets; back in 2006 the German beat Andre Agassi in the last match of the legendary American’s career on Arthur Ashe stadium court in the 3rd round of the US Open.
Verdasco needed a win to keep in safe in the hunt to reach the ATP World Tour finals at the O2 Arena in London.
Last year the Spaniard qualified for the event for the 1st time in his career, the world tour finals is the one event that the world number 1 Rafael Nadal has yet to win.
2 weeks ago Nadal completed a career Grand Slam when he won the US Open for the 1st time in his career with a 4 set win over Novak Djokovic.
