Exhibit A:

"Melzer is very tough if he plays well," said the Scot.

"The US Open was, I think, mentally quite a tough one for him. He told
me after the match he played one of his best matches. Obviously, I still
came through that one. Physically, he was struggling a bit.

"I know that I'm going to have to play well to win the match. But I just
think mentally going in I'm going to feel better this time than I was
going in playing against him at the US Open."

Exhibit B:

"Federer, Nadal have got the most experience, and probably merit being
favourites. But there's a reason why people think I have a chance to win
here, because I played very well the last few months and won against them."

Confident! Overconfident?

Federer will be looking at his 13 GS trophies and saying, "Whatever, I
am gonna get me another one of these".

I wonder if he is taking a page off the Djoker copybook from
AO last year. Calculated slights that get under Fed's skin.
If Fed lets such things bother him, it's really Fed's problem.

Refreshingly candid, without being arrogant (as opposed to several of his cracks
aimed at Federer the past few days). And I don't really care for Murray.
