It's not an excuse, it's a fact. Who knows how much of an affect it really had on him.. but he couldn't find his usual extra gear against Djokovic in that match. Obviously part of it was Djokovic himself, but Federer wasn't 100%. That's just the way it is. I don't consider it a fluke win for Djokovic, as he's exceptionally good on Plexicushion, but rest-assured: prime, healthy Fed wouldn't have gone down in straights. No way.
