Federer: I'm glad I won, it saved my image

"I could see the headlines," a relieved Federer told reporters. "'Federer loses to a guy outside the top 1,000.' I'm glad I won, it saved my image."

If there was any doubt, Roger has proven that he deserves to be ranked 1077 or even higher.

Re: Federer: I'm glad I won, it saved my image

Talking about lack of competition for Rogi... the depth in today's tennis is incredible...
okok, Suzuki didn't play for most of the season, so he should be higher, but I think last year at the AO he also wasn't in the top 100?

And didn't Roger beat Carlos Moya when he was only Nr. 500 in the world or something? He mentioned that some weeks ago I think... what position was Moya back then, anyone know? Thanks!

Suzuki is obviously ranked too low I remember at the Australian Open What a great player to watch.

As if Moya was a standard for comparison.
