An Interview With: Roger Federer (Round 2)
Thursday, September 03, 2015
Q. How would you rate your performance tonight? It was pretty easy. How would you compare how you're playing this year, especially tonight, to the last few years at the US Open?
ROGER FEDERER: I mean, obviously '13 was difficult. Other years were good as well. I don't remember the opening rounds from the last two years right now. Very often I started this tournament quite strong. It's always gone quite well for me. I've always enjoyed conditions here, the balls, the speed of the court, the atmosphere in the arena. It's always worked very well for me.
I think this year is another good year. Doing the right things on the court. Like you said, it was pretty on the easier side, you know, so I was able to mix it up, was attacking, was also staying back some. I was pretty much all-out attack as much as I could. Obviously I have to manage that against different players when the scoreline isn't maybe so one-sided.
Q. Would you vote for Marcelo Rios if you were a voter for the Hall of Fame?
