    Further revelations about Federer and Roche from the horse's mouth. It seems Federer was dismayed by Roche's lack of investment in his success or failure. Whether this was due to Roche's great respect for Federer or moderate interest in the project, I suspect we'll never know unless Roche speaks. I think Roche had and has such respect and trust in Federer's ability, he may have felt his presence was superfluous, that he was doing Roger a favour by giving him space, when what Federer wanted was the opposite.
