Within 78 minutes of time, Roger Federer thrashed the Belgian tennis player, David Goffin and reached his 13th quarterfinals in New York. With a smooth 6-2, 6-2, 6-0 fourth-round victory at the US Open 2019, Federer sets up a quarterfinal clash with Grigor Dimitrov.
While Federer was in the Eurosport Studio at Flushing Meadows, a Roger Federer fan from Texas, USA interacted with him. She asked the Swiss that which audience in New York is more electrifying, the day-time or the night-time.
World Number three, Federer spoke about the pros of both sessions, and he revealed that he finds the night matches more energetic than the ones during the day. However, the maestro feels a bit pressurized while swinging his racquet during the night.
“I somehow feel some pressure at night, because you feel that it’s the only match going on in the whole Bille Jean King National Tennis Center. Whereas during the day time you feel there are a lot of things going on. People are walking around, having a good time, you feel a less bit pressure,” Roger Federer said.
Despite the dynamic vibes during the day, Federer is amused by the presence of the audience at night. “That doesn’t mean I enjoy the other better. I really like the day time, when its a beautiful sunshine like this. I see that people are out and having a good time, but night sessions, it’s got to be the thing here in New York. I’ll probably go with the night sessions,” he added.
The Swiss maestro, Roger Federer began his this year’s campaign at Flushing Meadows with a night session match against India’s Sumit Nagal in the Arthur Ashe Stadium, later he played his next three matches during the day time.
