Subject: Federer talks about why he was mad they made Murray the favorite
"I hope to get more chances to play him on hard courts," said Federer
of Nadal in his French postmatch interview. "He has had a lot of
chances to play me on clay and that's helped him on other surfaces and
that's helped his confidence going into Wimbledon. But he has
progressed a lot on hard courts. We saw that at the Olympics. That's
why I was mad he wasn't the favorite [here]."

This is exactl what he said, check the order:

Murray "has never won a Slam. Novak is the defending champion here.
Rafa [Nadal] had an incredible season last year," said Federer, who is
bidding to equal Pete Sampras' record of 14 Grand Slam singles titles.
"I won the last Slam of last season. It's surprising to hear."
