Federer: “I was already starting to think about how I was going to talk about my defeat” – Fil Info – Open Australia

-

Roger Federer qualified Friday for the knockout stages of the Australian Open by overcoming the phenomenal resistance of John Millman (47th world) 4-6, 7-6 (7/2), 6-4 , 4-6, 7-6 (10/8) and after 4h03 of combat. “What a match!” Exclaimed the 38-year-old Swiss, before leaving the court Rod Laver. The whole super tie break was led until 4-8. Two points from the defeat, he went on 6 points to conclude the game.

“It was tough tonight … and thank God there was a great tie break, otherwise I would have lost,” said Federer. “I was already starting to think about how I was going to talk about my defeat at a press conference,” he said. The world No.3, who had lost to Millman in their only Grand Slam match so far, in the knockout stages of the 2018 US Open, committed a staggering number of direct faults: 82 in total, including 48 on his forehand. “I never felt comfortable. John was very good at keeping me on the defensive until the last point. And there, he chose the wrong side, “said the player to the 20 Grand Slam titles. Federer will face the Hungarian Marton Fucsovics (67th) for a place in the quarters.
