“I assumed Federer was glorious tonight,” Rusedski stated on Sky Sports activities.

“Techniques have been very good. He served higher, improved dramatically from his second match once more.

“He seems like he’s again. By no means low cost a champion.

“He might be completely delighted to have gotten his revenge over Kevin Anderson from after they final met at Wimbledon.

“This was huge fro him psychologically as properly.”
