“I have won a lot in my career but not recently,” said Federer, whose last tournament win was in August 2012 in Cincinnati. “I am happy it worked for me today.
“I was satisfied with my game in the past 10 months. Maybe people thought I was playing badly. That was not the case. I was playing well but when it mattered the others were just better. Today it worked well,” he said in a courtside interview.
