Roger Federer said In press conference: ‘I just tried to remember the core of the match was focus on your serve and try to do what we talked with the coach beforehand on the return games, but it was just never really connecting at the right times, you know, my way. So I just had to hang tough, not get frustrated, and hope that I was not going to throw in a horrible, you know, service game or that he was going to connect perfectly. So, you know, it was a close match today, so I’m just relieved that I got through it somehow.’
