“Honestly it was hard to get that second set, and I never felt comfortable, always on the back foot until that last shot.”
“John was doing all the right stuff at the beginning of the super tiebreak, coming up with great points.”
“I thought ‘Okay, I tried, I guess I didn’t play too bad.’ I was getting ready to explain myself in the press conference,”
“The demons are always there. It was so tough, it was Johnny who really made it tough tonight.”
“I think it’s important to have different endings at every Slam. We got that, Making sure I experience them all before I leave the game.”
“I mean, honestly, I don’t know. I have been in so many different types of endings.”
“Yes, I don’t even care what the ending is as long as I know what the deal is at 6-6.
“I listen very carefully to the umpire and they say, It’s a 10-point tiebreaker. I’m like,”
“All right, it’s a 10-point tiebreaker. I kind of knew it was at 6-All this time around.“Roger Federer Full Press Conference after Millman win Embed from Getty Images
Moreover, Roger Federer explained how things went in the tiebreaker in the final set.
“Yeah, I felt the roar was big when he won his 7th point in the breaker. People must have thought it was over.”
” I’m okay with all four endings because they all have a reason to end the way they do. I don’t know what it is.“
“I’m of course a historian. I like when it just goes, you know, into the infinity, if you like.”
“But I do also see with what we saw with [Nicolas] Mahut and [John] Isner.“
“But if that happens, you have no shot of winning the tournament anymore. It’s just not possible.
“So I guess it is good to end it and cap it at some point, I guess. So, yeah. I don’t know. It is what it is.“
“And I think, you know, if you’re ending up with 6-All in super-tiebreaker or 9-All or 12-All, I mean, you have enough chances to clinch it early.
“I remember Tony Roche telling me they had long sets in every set. I just think TV couldn’t handle that nowadays anymore.” Roger Federer said.
