Absolutely Mark! Federer respects the other players.
More from the interview:
"I knew I was putting all those records on the line when I came here," said the Wimbledon and U.S. Open champion. "I wish I could've gone two points further. It hurts."
"Somehow those first two sets took too much out of me," Federer said. "It would have been an incredible comeback. It was just big, big fatigue. I was never at 100 percent the whole tournament.
"But the better guy won today. He was way better in the third and fourth and fifth. He totally deserved to win tonight."
