Q. You practiced with Goran Ivanisevic before the final. He's a lefty. Does it help you against Rafa?

ROGER FEDERER: Well, I mean, it's good to have hit at least half an hour with a lefty before the finals because I've played against six right handers.

So, of course, it's hard to come into a match and you play a lefty. Especially on the returns, I always feel it. The entire points are played in a different manner. Where usually you go backhand cross‑court, with Rafa I have to go backhand long line.

I asked Goran yesterday if he wanted to hit with me. He said, Sure, I'm around. I was very happy he did that.

Agreed, would be really good to see this. Good to see that the older players are still valued for their experience and skills by some
