THE MODERATOR: Questions in English, please.
Q. I’m sure you’re very disappointed.
ROGER FEDERER: Not so disappointed, no.
Q. But losing against Stan, your friend, partner in our Davis Cup team, that gives you some positive thought. Maybe it’s not so bad.
ROGER FEDERER: Exactly. You make it sound so bad, and at the end it’s not so bad.
I started from not so bad to a bit frustrated that maybe you don’t win it. Like you said, I think it’s one of the those finals that I could have won. But Stan, you know, was tougher at the end. I think he deserved it just a little bit more.
Clearly it would have been nice to win that second set tiebreaker. I didn’t necessarily play a bad one, but also at the same time I didn’t quite ever get into the lead where things went my way.
Of course, I’m very happy for Stan. It’s a huge win for him after winning his first Grand Slam this year, also to win his first Masters 1000. To take the opportunities when they’re there, that’s key in a tennis player’s career. So I’m very happy for him.
I will always be so proud of you. You’re the best thing that has ever happened to tennis and I will always love you whatever you go through. My king, my hero, my champion. Forever youRFan ❤
