And anyway contradicting himself: 'it could have been even more one sided' sounds like an admission it was one sided [while being somewhat close??] Oh dear he can't even speak straight now either Andy has so got inside his head.
Sorry - one shouldn't mock the afflicted
but what happened to the usual suave, smoothe-talking Roger Federer? I've never seen him so discomfited in an interview before. Yes he had served 3 DFs in one game before ... err, like when he was 9 years old?
Chalk and cheese. Typical Andy - just tells it how it is. No frills, no excuses. Hope he did manage to escape the arena as quickly as he could and got the rest he needs for today. It must have been about 11 pm in Shanghai by then, so given all the things Andy has to do after matches he probably didn't get to bed until after 1 am.
