Sock big target for Federer

“It was a big distraction, I’ll tell you that, because it was very big,” Federer said. “That’s what I should have aimed for. That target was bigger than the down-the-line court that I had.”

Federer said it was hardly the first time he’d seen it. But never on such a big stage.
