Speaking after his US Open victory on Sunday, Djokovic spoke of his admiration for Federer.
“I have to share my admiration for Roger, everything he’s still doing for tennis. It was a tough one tonight. I have a tremendous respect for Roger, an incredible record. Coming on court knowing you are playing against probably the best player in the game adds a little bit more pressure. I knew he was going to be very aggressive. It was a quite incredible evening for me,” the Serbian said.
Federer who was magnanimous in defeat also spoke after the game. Here’s what he said:
“Felt great to be back in a final after six years. I’ve had a wonderful two weeks, very happy with my tennis. I enjoyed it and thought it was a great match. It’s been a good rivalry, maybe not tonight. I think we walk away from it knowing more about our games and more about ourselves.”
