What was Federer’s problem against Albot
During the press conference following his match, Roger admitted
“I felt like I was in 2 minds. That sometimes plays in a first round. You are looking to take out the ball, but then sometimes you cannot go big all the times. So you also have to hold back and sometimes you feel like it happens always on the wrong times. You pull the trigger on the wrong times, you are going safe in the wrong times and that has something to do how I thought he played his game and he seemed very clear to me and I wasn’t.
In the heat of the moment, I was forgetting stuff also that my coach told me and I felt that the important points or points I could have done something interesting for me I played poorly because I was in 2 minds.
The margin are slim and you are down and then when you down you are going to play differently and at the end, it’s just about finding the way.
These are the matches that are so key during the year for any player.”
