Roger Federer interview ,Wimbledon, June 23, 2008 ( Federer def. Dominik Hrbaty) 【Q. Did it startle you a little bit when Dominik suddenly sat next to you?
ROGER FEDERER: Yeah. I looked over and there he was. He asked if I could sit next to me. I said, Sure. There's no problem. There's an extra seat (smiling).
We go way back. Used to play doubles together. Used to practice a lot together. You know, he taught me also a little bit how you're supposed to practice because I was a little bit weak in the beginning of my, you know, men's career and everything. I couldn't practice real hard, so he sort of showed me how it works. He always said if I ever beat him in practice I'd probably be No. 1 in the world. That's exactly how it went. We've had always good fun together. He said it might be his last Wimbledon, so it was almost a little bit emotional. So it was quite nice he did that.
Q. What did you say to him?
ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, sure you can sit next to me. I said, Well, I mean, also I'm very happy, you know, that you appreciate playing against me. You know, it's a match that was a great honor for him to actually not only play against me, but be my friend. I said, Well, same for me here. It was nice to share that moment on Centre Court together.】 via http://www.tennisnews.com/exclusive.p...
