She was right.
Roger Federer lost his temper and the match against Novak Djokovic in the semifinals at the Sony Ericsson Open last night.
Federer angrily broke his racket Friday en route to a 3-6, 6-2, 6-3 loss to Djokovic.
Federer fell behind 2-love in the third set, and when he netted an easy forehand to start the next game, he slammed his racket to the concrete, mangling it.
The outburst came as a shock especially to his fans.
“I was just frustrated,” a red-eyed Federer said shortly after the match.Federer lost the next two games as the match slipped away despite support from a sympathetic crowd.
“Didn’t feel great. It’s just a natural thing I did.”
Djokovic’s opponent in the final Sunday will be Andy Murray who beat Juan Martin del Potro 6-1, 5-7, 6-2.
