Federer on RG Semi: "I thought I was going to lose the match"

http://msnbc.msn.com/id/13221348/

“I really thought I was going to lose that match,” Federer said. “I was fortunate, for I was not doing too well.”

“David played a great first set and a half,” Federer said. “But then I started to hit some fabulous shots, and it gave me confidence.”

I agree with Roger. I was sure he was going to lose. I'm really sad for David.

He wasnt gonna lose if david played like that for the rest of the match but who knows? Maybe if he wasnt injured he would have one more sets. Leo still watching!!!

Nadal~Federer~Baghdatis~Tursonov

Gonzo-Safin-Hewitt-Robredo-Verdasco-Moya-Nalbandian-Roddick-Kolya

"He has no idea what he is writing anymore or who he is writing to. He just puts “lol” and moves on to the next window. The girl is probably telling him that her kittens died and he just says, “lol.” "Tursunov on Monfils

For a set and a half, really David played so well
But when Roger came back from 0-3 down in the second and won the second set (even before david's injury), I believed he had shaken off his nerves and was going to win it in 4

Hopefully he has the same mentality against Nadal in the final (er uhm or Ljubicic).

Re: Federer on RG Semi: "I thought I was going to lose the match"

I was feeling the same...David played almost perfect tennis in the 1st set and first few games of the 2nd...Roger was...not playing badly but just outplayed

I'm actually a bit sad for David. Hope he is fine.

Luck had nothing to do with it. He upped his game under pressure.

Need ideas for a new signature...

I disagree...........Roger started to play on a different level after being broken in the second set.........He didn't get "extremely lucky".........
