Fed: "I think he played very well and I didn't think I was playing poorly at all"

If that doesn't silence the haters and professional makers of excuses, I don't know what will.

Thanks for being a class act Roger

At least he is putting a positive spin on all of this. That has to be a good sign for the future. I like that about Rogi. He is so honest & positive. No excuses. No assigning blame to others or the technology. He knows he was simply beaten by a hungrier guy looking to make a name for himself and he is fine with the loss. If he loses Miami in a similar fashion I'll start to worry.

Federer embracing the Nadal style fake modesty/graciousness?

"I play my best tennis,no? I no excuses. He just outplay me,no? He always the favorite,no?"

Me thinks he's conserving energy for the ''fifth slam.''

Wimbledon Upsets:
Safin def. Djokovic 6-4, 7-6, 6-2
Schuettler def. Blake 6-3, 6-7, 4-6, 6-4, 6-4
Kudryavtseva def. Sharapova 6-2, 6-4
Tipsarevic def. Roddick 6-7, 7-5, 6-4, 7-6
Dancevic def. Nalbandian 6-4, 6-2, 6-4
Zheng def. Ivanovic 6-1, 6-4
Tanasugarn def. Jankovic 6-3, 6-2
Radwanska def. Kuznetsova 6-4, 1-6, 7-5

You ran out of arguments (not that you had any to begin with) so you ridicule Rafa which is and irrelevant . I hope you're enjoying eating your own words of how Fed tanked and was at 10%

Fake modesty. Anyone that knows tennis will say he was not moving well at all out there.

After the match Fed went on to play doubles, win, and give full credit to Willy in the press conference. I rest my case.

ummm...no Rogi is being completely honest. With Nadal there's always a hint that it's fake. Like, "he outplayed me no ? He deserved to win no ? But I'm not felling 100% on the court, no ? My ass hurts bad no ? Hawkeye cheated me, no ? But I always try my best, no." He always gives you clues as to his real thoughts. ...No ?

True, Nadal gives those hidden excuses but Federer is a bit more intelligent, so he can actually learn from the master of fake modesty AND make it look believable

Good sportmanship and respect from Federer.

But he did play poorly to his standards... we all know that.
