“It’s a nice round number,” said Federer, “I’ve had some more important ones than the one today, but nevertheless it’s nice to reach such milestones.
“I was one of those guys who struggled early on in the Masters 1000. I know how hard it is to win all these matches because it’s always against top 50 players, if not top 20, if not top 10.”
“From that standpoint, I’m obviously happy that it is at 300, it’s nice.”
Meanwhile Venus Williams, who reached the finals of the Rogers Cup 2014, failed to hold momentum and ran out of steam versus Czech Lucie Safarova. Safarova beat V. Wiliams in three sets 6-7, 6-3, 6-4.
“It was definitely a quick turnaround, maybe would have been a little better to play a little later in the day,” said Williams.
“But she just played so well. No matter what shot I hit she hit a winner, or if I hit it really deep she somehow managed to control it down the line.”
That is a big compliment to Lucie Safarova.
