Did Roger really say this?

"I felt a bit slow out there. He played so badly in the first set that he almost faked me out," Federer told reporters. "But when he served for the match it became tough on him."

:spit:

Not exactly :lol: it was an on court interview in french, he said RRH started badly and that it surprised him when he started playing better in the second. He never implied RRH had planned this or something :p

here were the rest of the words by the way:


“I’m disappointed by the way I played but tomorrow is a new match, a new day, a new opponent. And so far, it’s six matches and six wins on clay so I’m happy.”

:yeah: Always 'funny', posters quoting PARTS of an interview and pulling the words completely out of context. NOT.

"Did Roger will say this?"

haha... what the hell is this sentence?

I think he meant well. RRH played so badly in the first set that probably made Fed lose his concentration in the second. And when RRH served for the match, he was probably stressed out (choked), allowed Fed to come back.

I don't see anything wrong with this.

maybe "freaked me out" and not "faked me out"?

Losing the first set 6-1 deliberatley so the world #1 goes to sleep tactically and mentally is a very common tactic. I'm surprised Roger fell for it ;)

Fucked out?

Roger's quotes should be called "FEDERISMS".

my guess: it gave him(Fed) a false sence of security.
