Very sad and angry at myself - Federer

 “I don’t know yet, I don’t even want to know,” he said when asked about the nature of his latest setback.

“I just felt not the same afterwards.
“I don’t know at this point. I hope it’s not so bad. I walked it off. I was able to finish.
“But I don’t slip a lot. I don’t ever fall down. It was a different fall for me than I’ve ever had.
“With the body that’s been, you know, playing up this year, I just hope I’m going to be fine.
“I believe I am, but I’ll know more tomorrow when I wake up.”
Federer, 34, was furious with himself after surrendering control of a match he dominated from the start of the second set to almost the end of the fourth.
But after almost securing a terminal service break against Raonic late in the fourth, he collapsed with serving malfunctions.
“Opportunities were all around the fourth set,” Federer said.
“I think I pushed him on a few service games to get the break. But somehow I couldn’t get it done.
Roger said that he deserved it in the end 
Raonic will face Murray in the finals.
