Roger Federer said: "Ghost of Wimbledon final loss were never really there. There was some press guys that made that up. So from my standpoint, I also didn't know I hadn't beaten him in a few years, actually. Didn't feel that way because it was so close in Paris and in Wimbledon against him.
I realized I hadn't beaten him since my knee operation. I heard that today. I don't know if that was good to know or not, but anyway, I found out. And then, yeah, I felt like I was going to have my chance, to be quite honest."
