ROGER FEDERER admits he may have to eat humble pie if Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic reach Sunday’s Wimbledon final.
After losing to Djokovic in the semi-finals of the Australian Open, Federer heard it suggested that he and Nadal were coming under serious threat from Djokovic and Murray.
“Let’s talk in six months,” was his reply at the time, Federer bristling at the suggestion he might be a fading force after one semi-final loss.
Now Federer can see himself and his great rival contesting another Wimbledon final, but should it be Murray and Djokovic battling it out for glory on Sunday the most successful player in the history of men’s tennis will accept the state of the game is changing.
“We’ve got to wait and see how this turns out,” he said. “Because, again, it could be a repeat of the Djokovic-Murray final and then I was wrong. If it’s not the case, then I was right At the end of the day, I don’t care if I’m wrong or right. I know where my game is at.”
