Roger Federer: Was very close to defeat

Swiss tennis player Roger Federer commented on the victory in the third round of the tournament in Madrid.

“Gael did a good job, not giving up after the first set lost with a score of 0/6. Probably, the knowledge gained in yesterday’s match, where he also largely lost in the first game, was useful to him. It helped him to keep calm.

As for me, I tried to continue to play the same way as at the beginning of the match, but it was difficult. Then there was a heavy stretch, when I lost five games in a row in the end of the second – the beginning of the third set. I conceded with a score of 3/0, and the prospects were not very bright. But I managed to get back into the game and bring it to a tie-break. Before that, I won the match ball, giving the second ball, which was a very stressful moment. But I managed, I played a great tie-break, perfectly serving and accepting. Therefore, I am very glad that I somehow managed to pull out this almost lost match, “the Tour press service quotes Federer.
