Roger Federer: ´Me on Centre Court? Credit to myself, I won much here´

Roger Federer was just the only men player to qualify for the fourth round on Friday after beating Dan Evans in straight sets. This week many players who played on outside courts complained, but Roger thinks in his case there is a reason why he can play down the retractable roof: 'Credit to myself for maybe winning as much as I did here in previous years that I do get put on either Centre Court or 1.

Also, playing against British players helped.' One of the players who were forced to continue their match tomorrow has been Novak Djokovic, who was down 5-7 1-6 against Sam Querrey: 'I know we get carried away, we think it's impossible to beat him [Djokovic], all these things - said Federer - Clearly he's beatable.

It's not impossible. He cannot win straight 200 matches in tennis. It's not possible. You're going to have your losses. But he hasn't lost. That's the great thing for him. He can fight his way out of it. 'It will be a different day tomorrow.

Maybe very windy, a different game. It's still a long way away for Sam to get it done, especially with Novak's track record right now in the slams. They both know that. It will be an interesting match from now on clearly, to see how Novak is going to come back from this.' Federer will comeback in action on Monday, so "I might take a day off tomorrow (Saturday) just because I can.

I'm sorry, I have to take them when I can. I'm an old guy. I'm looking forward to it. On Sunday I'll practice with more intensity, to keep that intensity, play points, go to the gym again. Tomorrow it's relax, and Monday hopefully I'll have great energy when I come back.' ALSO READ: Novak Djokovic: ´We are planning an event in the former Yugoslavia for a humanitarian purpose´
