Swiss tennis player Roger Federer commented on reaching the quarterfinals of the tournament in Dubai.
“I am pleased that I remained calm throughout the game. Despite the fact that I didn’t show my best game, I still felt that the key goals would be mine. I think confidence is important in sports. I am happy that everything worked out for me at the end …
I played the match well. At the right moment the pitch flew, there were a few good shots, a great break point draw, it’s nice to win this way.
Then I will play with Fucsovics. I know Marton well enough. He came to Zurich to practice with me. I do not remember how much time we spent in training, but it was a good sparring for several days. We had a great time. Then I played with him at the Australian Open last year. Good match. Marton began to play better. He likes fast courts. He is very well prepared physically. I think this match will be a test for me, ”the Tour press service quotes Federer.
