Roger Federer after reaching the US Open finals for the first time since 2009 suffered a four-set defeat against the Serbian Novak Djokovic.
The Serb defeated Roger Federer in four sets 6-4, 5-7, 6-4, 6-4 in a match which lasted for around 3 hrs. The Swiss converted only 4 out of the 23 break points which saw him in the losing side while Djokovic managed to convert 6 out of 13 break points.
“I had chances on my racquet and I am very disappointed,” Federer said.
”I should have never been down in the first place two sets to one and 5-2,” Federer further said.
Federer wasn’t serving that well too and his coach Stefan Edberg felt it was the conditions that made the difference. He said, “The match was postponed due to rain. It was much cooler and the courts were slower.”
“The match was all on luck as only 2 points separated them (Djokovic won 147 points, while Federer 145). The match was tied and if Federer had a little more luck things could turn out differently,” said Edberg.
But the Swede still has high hopes from Federer, “Roger has played some of his best tennis in the past few years and will not give up. He works hard and will ultimately reap the benefits. If he continues to play at this same level, he surely will more chances to win Grand Slams,” Edberg said.
