”It’s nice to play this way,” Federer said. ”And, maybe at my age, to run through five opponents the way I have done here at the U.S. Open, I don’t consider that normal, to be quite honest, even though I expect it in some ways.”
”I don’t feel like I’m as old as I am. I still feel young,” Federer said. ”So it’s nice to get rewarded with the hard work and (know) that, actually, I’m able to play sort of ‘fun’ tennis.”
