Roger Federer had some interesting post-match quotes following his quarterfinal Wimbledon loss to Berdych on Wednesday. After saying that he only lost to Berdych because of a previously unmentioned right leg injury, Federer closed out his post-match press conference by laying into just about everyone left in the men's field.â†µ
Q. I wonder if you think this might be [Murray's] year, given some of the really threatening players haven't been doing so well this year.â†µ
ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I mean, true, Rafa played terribly lately; Soderling is not a threat either. He's got an easy ride to this victory, that's for sure. Djokovic can't play tennis anymore it seems like.â†µ
Got to make your own work, please. Respect the players. Obviously Andy is a fantastic player and he's got all the chances to win here. We all know that.
Without having actually heard Federer say those things, we'll assume it was sarcasm. But it would be a lot cooler if it wasn't.
