“I knew that the day Rafa wasn’t in the final I would be there and I would win,” said world number two Federer.
Here is a touching moment from Roger Federer that quite frankly surprises me. So many sports figures are afraid to show their vulnerability. Roger is no different. Usually. But here he admits that if he just kept trying one of these days Nadal wouldn’t make the final and then it would be his. He admits he couldn’t win against Nadal. It’s a great moment of triumph and determination.
