Quotable Quotes: Thank God the hard court season is over.
Just yesterday, Roger Federer lost another stinker to the Big Berd and managed to come off sounding confused for the first time I can remember in the press conference.
Look, it’s no secret I’ve struggled the last, what is it, five matches I’ve played here in the States. It’s disappointing, I think, my performance overall, if I’ve got to analyze right now after the match.
But I fought as much as I could under the understood circumstances with my game having issues at the moment. Definitely lack timing. I don’t know where that comes from because I played so nicely in Australia. So it’s disappointing to not be able to back it up.
Maybe the sickness did take it out of me more than I thought. Maybe the break was quite long. I’m kind of used to those things, and I still, you know, think I could have done much better.
I was a couple points away this week and then also in Indian Wells had my chances. It’s disappointing having had a chance to move on. Maybe I had a chance to sort of turn around my game.
But, you know, we’ll see how it goes forward.
I’m a bit confused with how I’m feeling the ball at the moment. Sometimes it flies and sometimes it doesn’t. It’s a lot to do with how you feel at the moment.
When I’m not playing my best, it’s hard to judge my opponent, to be quite honest. But he’s a good player, so I knew the danger coming in, especially with the timing issues I’ve had already the last couple weeks.
But I thought I worked hard enough to iron those things out. Maybe I did. It was still the confidence lacking, and that’s what kind of cost me these last two tournaments.
Only fuels my desire to go back to the practice courts and come back even stronger. I don’t like to lose these type of the matches. [NO SHIT.]
I’m looking forward to the clay court season now. It helps to kind of move on to a different surface. Then this has nothing to do too much with the clay court season, and that helps.
So I’m looking forward to that. Definitely need to practice harder, and that’s what I’ll do.
Practice harder was what he said, and practice harder was what he did. How’s this for PR?
A day after losing in Miami, Roger is already hitting the practice courts. On clay.
Look he even added an exclamation mark to show you how excited he was!
In 17 minutes, over 4000 people “liked” it. I ‘facebook-liked’ it too Roger! I feel like we had genuine communication between us! And if you do better during the clay season, I’ll have your babies again!
Fine Squishy, I can’t stay mad at you for long. I’ll pick Federbear off the ground now.
