Fair Fed­erer

Muscat Daily - - SPORTS -

Roger Fed­erer spared a thought for sec­ond-round vic­tim Filip Kra­ji­novic af­ter heavy rain played havoc with the sched­ule.

The feted Swiss had the lux­ury of play­ing un­der the Rod Laver Arena roof when Melbourne Park was del­uged on Mon­day, while Kra­ji­novic had to come back on Tues­day to com­plete his match with Quentin Halys.

It ended up be­ing a tough five-set­ter - not the best prepa­ra­tion for play­ing the all-time Grand Slam record­holder the next day. “A lit­tle bit ac­tu­ally,” said Fed­erer, when asked if he felt sorry for Kra­ji­novic.

“I thought it wasn’t 100 per cent fair he played three hours yes­ter­day and me, zero. The rain helped me so I’ve got to take them when they fall this way.”
