Roger Federer Didn't Know He Won His Semifinal Match

Saturday June 14th, 2014

Roger Federer was looking a bit perplexed at the end of his match against Kei Nishikori at the Gary Weber Open on Saturday.

During match point in the second tie-breaker, Nishikori sent a forehand into the net, giving Federer the victory. However, the tennis star had no idea he'd won. Instead, he wiped the sweat from his forehead and regrouped near the baseline. Luckily, it didn't take long for him to realize it was over.

Hey, when you've won as many matches as Roger has, you're allowed to zone out once in awhile.
