Did Roger really say this?

"I felt a bit slow out there. He played so badly in the first set that he almost faked me out," Federer told reporters. "But when he served for the match it became tough on him."

'faked out'? What does that mean?

Not exactly it was an on court interview in french, he said RRH started badly and that it surprised him when he started playing better in the second. He never implied RRH had planned this or something

"Did Roger will say this?"

haha... what the hell is this sentence?

I think he meant well. RRH played so badly in the first set that probably made Fed lose his concentration in the second. And when RRH served for the match, he was probably stressed out (choked), allowed Fed to come back.

I don't see anything wrong with this.

Re: Did Roger really say this?

Losing the first set 6-1 deliberatley so the world #1 goes to sleep tactically and mentally is a very common tactic. I'm surprised Roger fell for it
