Quote of the Day - Roger Federer after winning his opening match at Wimbledon

I don't care how many times he won this event, how many Slams he has collected, how many weeks he stayed at #1...etc... Nothing excuses this outfit!

"It's funny, I actually didn't even think about it I didn't have a grass court match yet this year. It's something I completely forgot about. I just felt good in practice the last few days.

I had some good practice matches, you know, with Safin and Youzhny and Wawrinka. Some good quality players. I felt like I was, you know, in good shape for my first round. That's what I remembered, not if I did play a tournament or not before.

But actually I'm very happy with my first round. I thought it was a very solid performance, because that's what it took today against Lu."

-- World number 2, Roger Federer, on how he felt during his first round match, despite not playing any matches on grass prior to Wimbledon.

Well apparently if you've won the tournament 5 times, and reached the final once, you don't really need to stress over getting match play before Wimbledon. The Swiss opened his campaign at the All England Club and his quest for the number 1 ranking, with a solid straight sets win over Yen-Hsun Lu.

Federer, who committed only 10 unforced errors throughout the match, beat the Chinese from Taipei 7-5, 6-3, 6-2, in his first match on grass this season.

Next up for Federer is Eastbourne's semifinalist, Guillermo Garcia-Lopez.
