Sergiy Stakhovsky continues slide
Andrey Kuznetsov of Russia beat Stakhovsky 7-5, 3-6, 6-2 at the clay-court event.
The 99th-ranked Stakhovsky beat Federer in four sets in the second round of Wimbledon last month, then lost to Juergen Melzer. The Ukrainian followed that with a first-round loss in Bastad, Sweden, and another in qualifying in Hamburg, Germany.
Federer, who lost in the Hamburg semifinals, will play in Gstaad for the first time since winning the title in 2004.
The seventh-seeded Czech went down 6-2, 6-4 to Marcel Granollers of Spain.
