Roger needed one hour and 19 minutes to complete victory today. He did not manage to find his rhythm right from the start, falling behind 0-3. But he managed to come back to 3-4 and then eventually secure the set with ease in the tie-break. The second set posed no threat to our champ, even though he dropped serve again at 5-1. The two players have both been active on the ATP-Tour for over ten years, but - astonishingly - had never met in a major tournament before.
"It will bring back memories, some not so nice," Roger said of the rematch against Berdych. "Hopefully I can get him back."
“It’s the first time I got an underarm serve,” Federer said with a laugh. “The third time somebody asked me for the shirt.”
Llodra: “Roger is a legend,” Llodra said. “It’s a good present for my kids.”
