Hi all. I've been reading this forum for years but never felt compelled to post, as you seem to cover most things! But I'd really like your opinion on this Federer press conference from just after his loss at the Paris Masters a few months ago. I appreciate that this was a while back, but the issue in question - his back - is just as relevant now.
At 3.26 in the video, Federer jokes that he's "got to make sure I get my back in shape now on indoors...no I'm kidding."
What do you guys make of this? He said this pretty awkwardly, and seemed to regret making the joke as soon as he'd said it! There are many things we could infer from this, or indeed nothing at all. Just keen to see what you think.
