James Blake has praised Roger Federer’s ability to put bad results behind him after being broken by Novak Djokovic at Wimbledon.
“Roger is one of the best I’ve ever seen at having a short memory and putting it behind him,” he told The Score. “That one, for him to even admit that it kind of broke him a bit, you know how devastating that was. He and (Pete) Sampras are the two best I’ve ever seen with finishing a match – win or lose – and be done with it and worrying about the next one.”
Federer tops an unwanted list in tennis at having lost the most ATP tournament finals in tennis history.
Despite that, the 20-time Grand Slam champion is still regarded as the greatest of all time as he continues to play at the top level late into his career.
