Those with Barclays ATP World Tour Finals tickets see 'surprise' Federer victory
Roger Federer has admitted he was surprised to beat Andy Murray in front of those with Barclays ATP World Tour Finals tickets yesterday (November 23rd).
The Swiss player beat the British number one 6-4, 6-2 during the second round of group matches at the tournament at London's O2 Arena.
And Federer admitted he was a little shocked to beat the Scot so easily, especially as Murray is one of the few players to hold a winning record over the former world number one.
"I don't think he played his best match," Federer told the Press Association. "He came out and made some mistakes. Maybe it was due to my good play."
"From my side, I was obviously very happy. It was a good match. I played tough and solid from start to finish. That seemed to be enough.
"These last two years I'm surprised I was able to beat Andy here because playing him in London should be really a tough, tough place to play against him."
In the day's other match, Swede Robin Soderling defeated Spain's David Ferrer 7-5, 7-5.
