An Interview With: Roger Federer (Final)
Sunday, September 13, 2015
Q. You played an outstanding match. You were playing so well. Is there consolation in that, or just disappointment that you weren't able to maybe convert some of those break points and come away with a win?
ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I mean, there is definitely consolation it's been a great stretch all the way for many months now.
Also to receive the crowd support that I did receive. I don't consider that normal. I always say. Say like it feels like you're winning, as well, but I felt like I was sort of up in the score, they kept me going, and that's definitely one of the reasons I still keep playing, because of these moments, goose bump moments. It's great.
Yeah, surely I am very disappointed. Like you said, I had my chances on my racquet. I should never been down in the score the way I was. But Novak did a great job of fending them off, and, you know, all of that.
It was a tough night, but still, I don't know, thrilling at the same time.
Q. Was the third set the key of this match? Seemed in the third you were maybe a bit better than him.
