Epic drama: Federer saves five match points against Zverev

Roger Federer said: "It was a crazy end to the second set, no doubt about it. I think it was 6-5, 40-Love maybe? I mean, at that point you're anyway halfway home, but I defended well, attacked well, hit some great shots, came back and then also the tiebreaker was tough the whole time.

Maybe saved some more match points there, I'm not sure anymore. But was definitely great atmosphere at that point, and I was able to maybe get a bit more balls back on his serve, because I thought he was clocking his serve really well all match today.

It was really impressive. I think second set he just, he had more opportunities probably, so I think he deserved to win that third set."
