Roger Federer: 'I watched Cecchinato-Djokovic match last year for ten mins'

In a press conference Roger Federer was asked what French Open matches he watched in 2016, 2017 and 2018 where he did not play. The Swiss said: "I almost watched no matches, because I was doing something else. Either I was training or I was with the kids or meeting with friends.

So being at home with four children running around, staying in front of the TV for two hours, you can just imagine the scenario. It really has to be "the" match that interests you if you're just watching for the sake of watching.

Well, if you're watching a match, you want to hope for someone to win, but since I was not part of the tournament, I didn't really care about who would win. I had decided not to play, so I was comfortable in not being in the draw.

I was happy for the other players. And I was on another adventure, if you want. So honestly, I was watching last year, Cecchinato, Djokovic, three games, and that's it because it happened that I had 10 minutes. I heard that Djoko was in difficulty, and I said, I gonna see the end of the match.

And that's it. Otherwise I don't remember who did what in the last three years. I know that there was Rafa and the rest I don't remember (smiling)."
