So excited for Rogi's second title of the year and man...doesn't Rogi look extremely happy too???
In fact he said after the win : "this title is very high in his rankings"
Some of the quotes from the after match interview of both players :
Federer: "He definitely played good tennis and it was difficult to comeback against him especially to give him the lead like I did after I got broken in the very first game. I knew right away when I gave him that start it would be difficult. I had many, many chances to come back but I felt it (the match) could swing away so I was happy to change some things in the second set and from then on it went really well. I changed my return, because every time I had break chances on the "ad court" and every time I thought I played a good point but I lost it. So I had to take more risk."
"I thought he played unbelievable tennis in the first set and came up with some great shots, big power, great serving and he totally deserved the first set."
(How do you rate this win and title?) "Very high! Especially to comeback from a set down and to win, it's very difficult in general in tennis especially in the finals. I thought experience could play a role, and it did a little bit because he probably got a little frustrated. This (title) is very high in my rankings, defending title is something else than winning the first time."
Lopez: "Well I'm happy because I had a great week. I was playing so good especially at the beginning of the match. I was close today, I almost beat the best player in the world so I have to be happy."
"He (Federer) was returning my serve so good and then he served unbelievable in the second and third sets. He was getting better and better as the match went on but I was getting a little down as the match went on. The thing is, I was playing wonderful tennis in the first set but it's not easy to keep it going."
(What did you learn from this experience?) "Many things, I get confidence for the next tournament and then the experience, to play with Roger in a final. We have played three times and he has beaten me three times, I have always played good with him and I have always lost which means he is a very good player, he's the best player. This is a great experience. "
