Roger Federer hit Juan Martin del Potro with a fast backhand in the third set during a normal situation of tennis that often happens. No serious consequences for the Argentine but just a little bit of pain in his leg.
After the loss, during his on-court speech Federer said: “I’m really happy to be here, except the losing part, that’s tough, but I’m so happy to be back in the finals here at Indian Wells. Had a great week on and off the court. Most importantly, Juan Martin, well played today. There wasn’t much between us but you deserve it, well done.”
