One of the lasting clips from Tuesday’s Roger Federer 5-set win over Juan Martin Del Potro was the Swiss, in rare display, losing his cool yelling “shut up” at a courtside fan.
The moment occurred late in the second set with Del Potro ahead 5-4 in the tiebreaker. A fan yelled out during the rally just before Federer netted a forehand crosscourt giving Del Potro the point.
“I was pushing hard and I was trying to – should have maybe won that second set earlier,” Federer said of the incident. “I’m stuck in a breaker. Juan Martin is playing well, hitting hard, I’m in defense. Obviously I was emotional and I was sometimes upset. Sometimes just trying to push myself on. Push harder and try harder and move faster, all those things, because I knew it could be crucial to the match. Thank God it wasn’t, but in the moment itself you don’t know. So you wait and see.”
