Not simply 'cos Federer lost but I'd consider Federer v Safin AO 2005 semi a better match than this. And Federer lost that one also. The level was much higher from both whereas in the Wimbledon 2008 match Federer was flat out poor for the first 2 sets. The AO '05 semi was extremely high quality all match from both guys.

^ I love these supposed quotes they put in these articles. “I cried incessantly for half an hour in the dressing room. Tears of disappointment and recrimination.” Apparently this is what Rafa said after losing Wimbledon in 2007. Iz the true, no? My English iz good, no? There are two chances he actually said that. None and f**k all Big Smile Take your pick!

There's no chance any direct translation from Spanish comes out anything like that.
