Good thread. Instant subscription. I love watching Roger play Delboy and he's genuinely one of the few guys I don't mind seeing Roger lose to (compared to the rest of the tour ).

Fedpotro


I love this quote from Roland Garros 09 -


Quote:
Q. You’re going to face Federer in the semifinal. Quite a few players and tennis fans would like Roger to win this tournament because it’s the only Grand Slam he hasn’t won yet.

JUAN MARTIN DEL POTRO: We feel the pression of the fans, everybody want Roger to win this tournament. But if I can’t do it, if I can’t win this tournament, I want to see, next Sunday, Roger with the trophy.

Q. After that extraordinary semifinal you played against Del Potro, do you think this could have some effect in your relationship to him, make you closer to him because of this experience?

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, those are matches that sort of remind you of some great battles, becomes personal almost to a degree in a nice way. So we could look back at this and have something in common.
I didn't know who won until I lost my match today. So I was looking. I saw the Serbian flag in the room I was waiting. No Argentinian flag, so who won? I thought Novak won. I came out and I saw Juan Martin. I said, Wow. Great effort. I'm so happy for you after the brutal loss.
I don't think many were favoring Juan Martin to win that match. That was a great, great effort. I was extremely happy for him, disappointed for Novak, but I didn't see Novak, but I was just really happy for Juan Martin.
