The seven-time Major also claimed the outcome was irrelevant for Federer, as the weekend is set to be a celebration of his career rather than focusing on whether he won or lost. “They are opposed to, you know, a very unique situation and we are all fortunate enough to be there,” he said of Sock and Tiafu.
“This is an incredible moment for our sport. I mean, the good news is that if they win, they won’t be bad either. This is about celebrating what Roger has accomplished and finishing and hoping he doesn’t hurt himself, that’s what I’m thinking. So I think winning or losing is beyond the point.”
