This is Why Federer cried alot in the Final

This is Why Roger Federer cried during the AO Final Ceremony : 

“I don't know what to tell you,” 
“I think what happened is I got to the finals very quickly. The semis was cut short. I had a lot of emotions left in me because I didn't have to go to extreme like last year against Nishikori, Stan, so forth.
It reminded me very much of the Baghdatis final, which was tough. I was the favourite. I got to the finals in a really good manner. Then when it was all said and done, Rocket gave me the trophy, I was standing in front of the people, I don't know, it's when it really hits me.
When I start thinking about what I was going to say, every subject I touch actually is very meaningful and very emotional. Thanking your team, congratulating Marin, thanking the people, thanking the tournament. At the end it's like one big party.
But I hoped over time in the speech I would start to relax a little bit, but I couldn't. It was what it was. I wish it wasn't so sometimes. At the same time I'm happy I can show emotions and share it with the people. If I got emotional, it's because it was a full crowd again. No people in the stadium wouldn't make me emotional, I'll tell you that. This is for them really also.

"During the match I constantly thought about the fact that I could reach 20. I was nervous the whole day, I thought about what would happen if I lose, if I win. That's why I broke down during the speech."
