Default Us Open Inerview

Latest interview by Fed at the Open. Pretty honest, not to controversial. Re-affirms his feelings on Gasquet's game. Praises Nalbandian.


Roger Federer
Saturday, August 25, 2007

THE MODERATOR: Questions for Roger.

Q. Last year you didn't qualify for the US Open Series. Does it put a little added pressure on your shoulders? Are you looking forward to trying to achieve this goal this year?
ROGER FEDERER: No, no pressure. Actually more excitement. I mean, it's a big purse. It's the biggest one in tennis. But, of course, you only get it if you win it. So it's a long way away.
Like I said, goals for me are always to try to come back and defend the title. If you have an extra incentive, that's great. I've had a great run here now, Montréal and Cincinnati. I'm really happy with my form. Hopefully now I can start with a good first round win here.

Q. You hit with Tim Henman yesterday. He announced his retirement effective in August. How has it been since you found out he's retiring? Did you find out before anyone else?
ROGER FEDERER: Kind of came out. I didn't know that because I don't read the English papers every day. He asked me if I wanted to practice kind of one last time. I kind of told him like, What are you talking about? That's it or what?
So, yeah, it was kind of a different kind of a practice, I thought. Almost a bit sad to a point. It's one of our last times we're playing together. I think he was a wonderful player, a wonderful person. It's always a pity when somebody like him leaves tennis. Yeah, I mean, he gave everything he had. In the end, the injuries got the better of him. He's got a great family now, so he's looking forward to his future now.

Q. Looked pretty good against you.
ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, too good. That's why he shouldn't retire. No, I'm kidding.
He knows best. I've had my struggles against him over the years. He beat me at Wimbledon. He beat me in my hometown twice. He beat me at the places where it hurt me most. But I got him back a couple times, which is nice, too.

Q. The night matches that you have at the US Open, are they something you look forward to because of the atmosphere or something that messes with your schedule?
ROGER FEDERER: No, I mean, I do like the night sessions. I prefer them over the day sessions, to be honest. Even though the schedule is tough, you know, because you finish late, then it's hard to get back into the rhythm. But, still, I do prefer to play at night because it's more special, electrifying. The crowds come out in big numbers.
Yeah, somehow you always have the feeling you're playing better at night than during the day.

Q. Can you remember one in particular that was your favorite?
ROGER FEDERER: I liked James Blake's last year. I thought that was kind a good match. I don't know if you consider the finals the night sessions, but they go into the nights sometimes. Had a few good ones as well there.

Q. What do you think about coming up the next generation, for example, Djokovic, Murray?
ROGER FEDERER: Well, I think the new generations now have announced themselves since a year basically. One year ago they were still very young, not just young. But they're all very good, you know. You could definitely tell one of them was going to definitely make the breakthrough soon. It was Djokovic that did it first, even though it looked like Murray was going to do it ahead of him. He had problems with his injuries. Who knows what he could have done at the French Open and Wimbledon, he was injured. Gasquet has been able to make a breakthrough as well making semis at Wimbledon. You always got Berdych, Baghdatis, all these other guys who can make the big breakthrough as well.
I think it's definitely now the young guys that are pushing through. I think slowly but surely they're also getting ready to win maybe big tournaments, like Djokovic has been able to win a couple of Masters Series this year. It's going to be interesting to see how well they can do at the Grand Slams.

Q. Who do you think of that group will wind up being the best?
ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I mean, I don't know honestly. I think they got similar chances, to be honest. At the moment you would have to probably say Djokovic and Murray. At the same time I like Gasquet's game better than those. It's my opinion. Berdych's got a huge game. Baghdatis has announced himself already a couple years ago with the finals at the Australian Open. Then there's other guys like maybe Del Potro who is going to come through. I think there's going to be a few very soon, a lot of them in the top 10.

Q. You don't mention Nadal?
ROGER FEDERER: He's already been up there too long. He's a veteran.

Q. Can you talk about your friendship, relationship, with Tiger Woods, and what you could possibly learn from him, if anything?
ROGER FEDERER: I don't know. There's not much we need to learn from each other. It's just great to be friends. Good to know each other. Of course, if we got a question, I can always probably ask him. But hasn't come to the point yet where I've been in a crisis where I had to call Tiger up and needed his backup or anything.
I mean, we're not here to solve problems for each other, we're here to help each other.

Q. Back to 2003, the last guy who beat you here was David Nalbandian. Ancic was last at Wimbledon. Do you remember that match?
ROGER FEDERER: Against Nalbandian, I do remember.

Q. It's been so long since you lost here. What it's like?
ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, it's been a while, which is a good thing (smiling). Nalbandian used to be one of the guys that I couldn't really figure out to play against, you know. That match for me was maybe a bit of a turnaround because that was maybe the last time I lost to him on that streak, then I beat him a few times, then he beat me in the finals of Shanghai. I remember that match, going like into the match and actually feeling strange. I actually still ended up winning the first set. I thought, Okay, I got him figured out now. I was down 5 0 in the second set. Okay, I still don't get it. I think then there was a rain delay. I came back, ended up losing 7 6.
I also see him actually making a run again here always. I think he's a fantastic ball striker. Hopefully he can do well again here at the US Open.

Q. After losing in Montréal, you said you felt good, somehow losing once in a while is okay.
ROGER FEDERER: I didn't say that after the match. I said that a week later. There's a difference.

Q. Do you find a way to build on your losses to renew your focus? Does that help your game in the long run?
ROGER FEDERER: I mean, it's good I think when you lose and you play right away again. You don't sit on that loss for too long. If you play again, lose again, okay, then it happens. It's just a pity it did. You try to work on your game again. It's harder if you lose and let's say you wouldn't play for a month. You think one month, that one match, everybody's talking about it.
The match I played wasn't too bad. I played actually a great week in general. I didn't lose a set till the finals. Played well against Lleyton, played well in the semis against Stepanek. I was actually quite happy with my form.
Then again, I got into Cincinnati worried just in general of my up and down results over there. I didn't know really how it was going to be. I thought I had kind of a tough draw after all there. I was really struggling with my rhythm. In the end, I really played my best on the final day. That's how I really won so many of my 50 titles, is to play my best in the finals.
Now I'm in great shape. I've had the best summer of my life. Hopefully I can repeat the win here at the US Open again.

Q. Do you think it's better for you to move from best of three sets to best of five?
ROGER FEDERER: I prefer over five sets. I just think it's more of a battle. It's more interesting. Yeah, it allows your opponent to get back into the match. You got to really close him out because over best of three sets you make one mistake and you're gone, it happens so fast, whereas with over five sets the better player usually wins. That's what I like with best of five sets.

How does he praise Nalbandian exactly? Saying he couldn't work out his game isn't praise, it was factual.

Roger gotta be careful, all that praise may get to Baby Fed's head, and he'll start getting confidence and actually win matches... he's your 3 rd meeting Roger!



Nole's interview is also intresting, they were trying to goad him to express disappointment Roger didn't congratulate him for winning or whatever, Nole wouldn't bite. Good for him.

I thought that statement qualified as praise. Maybe I'm missing something.

Default Re: Us Open Inerview

Nole's interview.

Q. You've been the dark horse to maybe win the tournament here. Have you been reading your clippings or sort of laying low?

NOVAK DJOKOVIC: Yes, I know that a lot of people expect obviously for me to be one of the favorites to win the US Open this year, but I'm not trying to see myself already lifting the trophy or being at the semis or finals of the tournament. I'm trying to go step by step and really take it easy. It's a long two weeks. There's a lot of matches to play, a lot of matches to win against difficult players.
You know, the players come here with another extra motivation because it's a Grand Slam, it's a huge event. But for me it's a lot of fun to play here because the tennis fans here in the States are giving a lot of support, they're making a great atmosphere. It's always good fun.

Q. What is the secret of beating Federer?

NOVAK DJOKOVIC: Well, everybody's asking that. I cannot explain you by the words. You will have to play him on the court and then see how it looks.
It's difficult to play him. He's a perfectionist on the court. All his shots are really good. Mentally he's the strongest player in the world. He plays his best tennis in the most important moments.
The only thing you can do is you have to keep it up with him, play every point, try to be focused, wait for your chances, which I managed to do in Montréal. I always learn something new from the matches against him. I lost four times, but put away the negative thoughts and just got into the match thinking of winning. It was not the case in the last four matches. I was just trying to prove to the people that I'm playing good tennis, that I'm talented. In Montréal, it was another thing, I tried to win.

Q. What do you take from Montréal, beating Nadal, Roddick?

NOVAK DJOKOVIC: I take a big trophy. It's back home (smiling).
It's been amazing year, first of all. Looking at Montréal, probably the best tournament of my career. I managed to do something which not many players did in the history of the tennis. You know, I won against Roger in a tough match. I won two tiebreaks. It makes my success even bigger, you know.
Now, after that tournament, I believe more in myself and I have more confidence and I think I have enough quality to challenge the best players on the world and to be one of the favorites to win this tournament, obviously, because I've been playing my best tennis on this surface.

Q. Roger has certain patterns he plays during groundstroke rallies. What did you learn from that match about anticipating patterns he puts together on the court?

NOVAK DJOKOVIC: Well, as I said, you always learn something new when you play him. I try to just play my game my style and not pay attention on his shots, what he does. I know that he likes to be in control of the match, likes to be aggressive. But still he has probably a lot of trouble with Nadal because Nadal stays with him every point and he doesn't give him a lot of free shots, a lot of unforced errors.
As I said, you always learn. Now since I managed to win against him, even it was a tight match, I believe more. I'm really looking forward to the next challenge, the next match against him.

Q. What is your style?

NOVAK DJOKOVIC: You know, as you probably saw on the court, I'm a baseline player. I have very aggressive and strong groundstrokes. I was working a lot in the last year or so on my volleys and serve. I was trying to improve. I still know that I have a lot of elements in the game that I need to improve on. It's a positive thing. I'm still 20 years old. Still a lot more time to come. I'm really happy with my performances the last couple of months on all the different kinds of surfaces. I was getting to the net more and more, which is probably my goal for the future.

Q. Your victory over Roger means it's probably more realizable than ever that two Serbians can win this tournament. How do you feel about that?

NOVAK DJOKOVIC: I feel great.

Q. Do you agree it seems probable?

NOVAK DJOKOVIC: Serbian tennis has grown extremely a lot in the last two years. You have two girls top five in the world. You have a doubles player top 10 in the world. You have me No. 3 in the world. It's really strange how we managed to do that only in two years of time. Looking at the history of Serbian tennis, we never had somebody really at the top. On men's tennis, we had (indiscernible), and from Serbia we didn't have anybody. In women's tennis, we had Monica Seles playing for us. We didn't have a big tennis tradition going on. We didn't have a big tennis system in our country. It's always good to see somebody which you've grown up with is doing well.
Those girls I know for a long time. I'm sure they have a lot of quality and one of them can win it this year.

Q. Can you talk about your first round match. When you saw the draw, what did you think?

NOVAK DJOKOVIC: Well, it's a difficult draw. The draw is a matter of luck. You cannot have a big impact on the draw. It's a matter of luck. I didn't have luck this time. I got a very difficult draw. I got Ancic in the first round, a player who was close to top 10. He was actually in top 10 end of last year. He's been through a difficult period since the March of this year. He didn't play any tournaments as he was injured and he was sick.
Now he has came back. He's not in the shape, in the top shape, but he's still a great player, a lot of talent. I have to be careful because he's motivated a lot because he didn't play a lot of matches. For sure he's gonna play the match thinking of winning and nothing to lose, so I can say looking on the paper I'm favorite, but it's gonna be a difficult match first round, of course. I'm not looking at the rest of the draw. Just going match by match.

Q. Has Roger, since you beat him, said anything to you, complimented you?

NOVAK DJOKOVIC: No. I mean, we didn't talk about tennis too much. We try to talk about some other things when we are off the court 'cause I think we all have enough of the tennis during the day, during the night, during the year.

Q. Did you do a good impression of him?
NOVAK DJOKOVIC: They're accepting it positively. Nobody's getting angry or upset. I'm really not trying to make fun of anybody. I'm just trying to bring up something new and just have fun.

Q. Have you done an impression for Roger?

NOVAK DJOKOVIC: Yes.

Q. What does he think of it?

NOVAK DJOKOVIC: I don't think he saw it. He has to come for one of my practices. Maybe if we practice together, I do a joke

Well indeed

But in this one he's been so anodyne that even they can't find fault...astonishing feat equalling anything he's managed so far this year!
