Roger Federer may have been distracted during his Indian Wells defeat to Juan Martin del Potro, according to Catherine Whitaker.
“We know you get a pro-Federer crowd anywhere no matter who’s playing, that is standard,” Catherine said.
She further added, “But it was uncomfortable to say the least at times yesterday I think.”
“I think he channeled it well and he used it to get himself fired up. I’d love to know what Federer really thinks about it, whether he actually thinks ‘guys, you’re not doing me any favours here. I’m glad you’re supporting me but chill out’.”
