Roger Federer made his rounds in the press room today at the Sony Ericsson Open in Miami. He comforted worried fans by finding some positives in his third round loss to Marcos Baghdatis at Indian Wells:
“I’ve had many years where I run from one thing to the next that also I welcome having all of a sudden more days off, more days of practice, more days where I can just wake up and see what I really want to do instead of having the perfect plan the whole time,” Federer said.
“It’s nice to adjust that for a change, if there’s anything positive to take out of a loss.”
Federer also claims to be fully recovered from the lung infection that sidelined him in February:
“I felt good ever since I got the green light from the doctors,” Federer said. “I’ve been practicing hard before Indian Wells and also now in between, so no issues whatsoever. I’m fighting fit again.“
