of the second set and the start of the third. Going down 3-0 and 4-1, it wasn’t looking good for a while but

I hung in there like he did and it got decided in a tiebreaker. It was a highly stressful moment for me but

I played a great tiebreaker, served well and mixed it up nicely so I’m very excited I was able to

come through the match somehow.” Federer said

and we are coming in, Regardless of how and what and when there were no more tactics except

to serve it to the forehand to mix it up and you go to the net as quick as possible so you are as

close as possible and I framed the first volley, which ended up being perfect.” Federer explained with a smile
