Q. You didn't look quite comfortable out there today, especially the first two sets. Was something special going on or just a bad day?

ROGER FEDERER: Just a bad day, yeah. I mean, I wish I could have played better, but clearly it was tough losing the first two, you know. Had chances to get back into it. I let it slip, I mean, both times in some ways. I guess I won the wrong points out there today. I knew how important that second set tiebreaker was, so clearly that hurt, losing that one. The end wasn't pretty, you know. It wasn't easy to play with the shadow. But it was the same for both of us. Just a disappointing loss, you know.

Q. Did you have a chance to make a volley on the very final point?

ROGER FEDERER: I mean, I guess maybe if he hits it normally, maybe yes. But the way he hits it you think, This can't possibly land in. You kind of go and you're there and you're like, No, I'm going to let it go. As you're telling yourself that, you look behind you and you already know it's done, so... Because he was also running into the sun, so I have to cover cross-court just in case. That's where everybody goes. I don't know. Ask him how he felt hitting it. It's clearly a big blow because I actually hit my forehand pretty good.

Q. Were you surprised about the first set of Bolelli, who never won a set versus you? Are you also surprised he never beat a top-10 player in 33 matches, and now 34?

ROGER FEDERER: Well, I thought he played two really good sets against me in Davis Cup, so I felt like he was really, you know, imposing his strength at the baseline. I could sense there that he had a good forehand; committed, you know, on the return; solid backhand with the option to hit the slice. I wasn't that surprised, to be honest, you know. I was just surprised how well, how consistently he was doing that, and especially how well he was serving actually. But then again, conditions were fast, which made it easier to serve well and harder to return. Maybe the break, I shouldn't be broken, but he was really playing very well from the baseline. I guess in these conditions sometimes a break can be a set. That's when I was under pressure for a while in the second set, but I'm happy I fought my way out of it.

Q. How is your finger and how is the blister?

ROGER FEDERER: I don't know if it's a blister. I don't know what that thing is. It's the weirdest thing. I don't know. I feel it on the tip of my finger. Just felt really odd starting after the break, and for three, four games, it was the funniest feeling I have. I feel like it's numb and swollen. So, I don't know, I just wanted to have a chat with the...

Q. Number 1001. Did you ever think you'd get there after you gotten 1000?

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I was hoping it would happen in Australia. I'm very pleased to make this one here tonight. You know, winning first round, it's always a bit of a relief. I thought I played good. So it was nice to get 1001 here now tonight. We're not going to talk about this every single match now, right? Let's just keep it to this one (smiling).

Q. Do you think personality-wise it lends well to succeed for a player, say, if they're outgoing on court it's easier to face a pressure point, where someone who is introverted might have to work a little bit harder to succeed?

ROGER FEDERER: Good question. I'm not sure. You would think an introvert is not ready to take huge risks, but then again he might be very thoughtful and play very well-constructed points, won't go for the silly shot. So I guess it really depends what kind of game you have. But I like the idea when you're young and you're fearless, you give it a shot and just go big and take it away from your opponent. That's kind of how I felt, how I did it sometimes. Yeah but, you know, it didn't always work. If you look, Lleyton, who wasn't quite like that, he was more constructive in his points. He had much more success early on. So I don't know.

Q. What is it about this Grand Slam which you particularly like as compared to the other three?

ROGER FEDERER: Sort of it's laid back, you know. The city, compared to the other three, clearly is more small, you know. It's easy to get around. Everything's pretty convenient here. It's really well-organized. Not saying that the other ones are not, but this one seems just like it's very nice and relaxed, super helpful. Yeah, and the weather clearly helps by it always seeming to be rather quite nice. I guess the three courts with the three roofs now is something quite special for us, the players. You can see that the tournament can still go on regardless of the weather. It's just good to know for all of us, so you're not that dependent on the weather as a top guy, which is nice. Yeah, a lot of good things. Many good things to like about this event.

Q. Novak Djokovic had a crack at the Aussie accent. Can you do anything?

ROGER FEDERER: No, I'm not very good at that. I'll let him do that (laughter).

Q. No g'day, mate?

ROGER FEDERER: I can do that, but not on command.

Q. Do you feel any different coming into Melbourne this year compared to last year?

Federer Wins Brisbane, Claims 1000th Win

Federer Wins Brisbane, Claims 1000th Win

Roger Federer defeated Milos Raonic 6-4, 6-7(2), 6-4 to win the Brisbane International 2015 title.

Federer claimed his 1000th match win and became the third player in the Open Era to achieve the feat, joining Jimmy Connors and Ivan Lendl.

The Swiss hit 15 winners to just three unforced errors in an impressive opening set. He broke Raonic in the third game, out-maneuvering the Canadian on the baseline. The Swiss carried his momentum into the second set as he quickly opened up a 2-0 lead, courtesy of a double fault from Raonic.

But the Toronto native fought back. With Federer up 30/0 on serve at 2-1, Raonic reeled off eight straight points to get back in contention and lead 3-2. In the eventual tie-break, Raonic won seven successive points from 0-2 down to level the match, clinching the tie-break with an unreturned serve.

Federer Sets Brisbane Final Against Raonic

Federer Sets Brisbane Final Against Raonic

Roger Federer will face Milos Raonic in the final of the Brisbane International presented by Suncorp after dismissing Grigor Dimitrov 6-2, 6-2 on Saturday.

World No. 2 Federer is looking to become just the third player in the Open Era to claim his 1000th tour-level match win, joining Jimmy Connors and Ivan Lendl.

The Swiss takes a 7-1 FedEx ATP Head2Head lead into the final against Raonic, though Raonic recorded his first win over the 33 year old last November at the BNP Paribas Masters in Paris. When they met two weeks later at the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals, Federer prevailed in straight sets.

Federer storms into Brisbane semis

Federer storms into Brisbane semis

Roger Federer enjoyed a quick day at the ofice today as he stormed past James Duckworth, 6-0, 6-1 in 41 minutes.

The former world number 1 will take on Grigor Dimitrov in the semi-finals of the Brisbane International.

Federer needs just two moe wins to become the third player in the Open Erato record 1,000 career match wins. Should he lift the trophy on Sunday, he would join Jimmy Connors (1,253) and Ivan Lendl (1,071) as the only players to accomplish the feat.

The Swiss lost just six points in the 16-minute opener and he had won eight straight games before Duckworth held serve to 15 for 1-2 in the second set. He won 25 of his 30 service points overall.

Federer survives in Brisbane

Federer survives in Brisbane

Roger Federer defeated John Millman 4-6, 6-4, 6-3 at the Brisbane International.

The former world number 1 needed two hours and two minutes to beat World No. 153.

“I thought I got quite lucky,” said Federer on-court. “He was playing great tennis until maybe the last couple of games. I had to fight very hard. Credit to him for pushing me to the edge.

“I didn’t play badly, but maybe felt a bit tired at times. The first match of the season you never know quite what to expect. I am sweating like crazy. I am happy we had a good match and I got through in the end.”
