After a quick win over Dudi Sela at the US Open today, Roger Federer fielded some softball questions from the press. The five-time US Open champion was even asked about Rafa’s new book, and if he had read it. But Federer joked that his good friend and rival Nadal hadn’t given him a copy.
“I might read it,” Federer joked. “I don’t know. I haven’t come across it yet. He hasn’t given me one yet. If he doesn’t, I’ll go buy one. That’s not the issue. No, I haven’t had the time yet. I don’t know if it’s gonna happen soon.”
All kidding aside, Federer will next play the winner the Bernard Tomic-Marin Cilic match on Saturday afternoon. Cilic right now is destroying Tomic losing just one game in two sets.
Federer won today 63, 62, 62 over Sela in just 77 minutes.
“Not much trouble on my serve, and from the baseline I also thought I had the upper hand,” Federer said. “When it’s like that, obviously it’s tough for the opponent, but I just think I was superior today. It was a good match for me in breezy conditions. It was a bit tricky early on to find the rhythm. That’s why I was happy to get the first break in the first set.”
