Roger Federer accepted his straight-set loss to Rafael Nadal in the French Open semifinals in a very fair way.

Nadal won his 12th French Open title after a 6-3 6-4 6-2 semi-final win over Federer.

Speaking to the Swiss reporters, as quoted by Telebasel, the world No. 3 said: “I am 37 years old. I can handle those situations. I will not cry tonight. It was like being in a sand hole. Rafa and I should wash our eyes to see what we eat (laughter). It’s never fun to lose in straight sets.”
