Roger Federer played excellent tennis and defeated Marin Cilic to get into the third round of the French Open. The result was 6-2, 2-6, 7-6 (4) and 6-2 for Basel. However, it was not all smiles for the number 8 in the world: he received a warning and argued with the umpire.
After taking the initial sleeve, Cilic served 1-3. Before serving to play the deuce in said game, the Croatian had to wait for his rival to settle down after looking for his towel. In this situation, umpire warned Federer, which generated the anger in His Majesty, something rarely seen.
Cilic was ready to serve, Roger went to get his towel and was warned by the umpire.
After the match, the winner of 20 Grand Slam trophies spoke at a press conference about what happened. “I didn’t feel like I was making him wait … I thought he was working on his serve, which I thought was weird. But I thought he was upset for a while and I told the judge. ‘Why didn’t you tell me? No I knew I was upset. ‘He said,’ Well, I thought you knew. ‘And I was like,’ Okay. Here we are again in a situation that you thought I knew, and then nobody knows. That’s a misunderstanding. “Roger declared.
Finally, the winner of the match argued that “I think I told him that I haven’t been playing much lately, so I’m not familiar with the rhythm. But the thing is, when he’s going to get ready to serve, he’s not ready yet. He bounces the ball ten times. I don’t feel like being standing there and waiting for him to be ready. He starts chipping the ball and I join in when I feel like I’m ready too. “.
