After Roger Federer defeated Nick Kyrgios with 7-6 (8-6) in the main match of Wednesday’s Rally For Relief event, he was asked about Nick’s form and overall performance on the field. Roger’s answer aroused waves of laughter from the crowd.
Besides raising money for the Australian bushfire relief efforts, Federer pointed out that the goal of the event is to have fun as well.
And Nick is one of those players that can make you have a laugh and a good exchange of forehand shots as well. “And having fun, have a good hit with Nick. We get along very well, we’ve had some epic matches along the years.
This was fun tonight. This was not about winning or losing”. Even though Roger Federer pointed out that it’s not about winning or losing, as we saw above, he judged Nick’s performance on the field on Wednesday. “Yeah, it was ok”. Federer responded.
