ROGER FEDERER: Well, there is always multiple factors that play into a match like this. But it definitely didn't go the way I was hoping on the breakpoints. I also didn't break him at the Hopman Cup, so clearly something is wrong how I return him, what I'm trying to do. How do you assess your own performance? ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I mean, I think it was okay. I lost to a better player who was playing very well tonight. Hung in there, gave himself chances at some point, stayed calm.

MELBOURNE, Australia — It was Roger Federer’s unlikeliest victory in a Grand Slam tournament — quite a statement for a 35-year-old who has now won 18 of them. But where else should one rank this Australian Open, where Federer was rightfully viewed as an underdog? Where he arrived seeded just 17th, having not played an official tournament for more than six months? Where he faced his friendly rival Rafael Nadal in the final on sore legs? Even Federer’s own expectations were tempered for a change. “I would have said a great event would be quarters,” Federer said. “Fourth round would be nice.”. Fe

MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — It took just over an hour for Roger Federer to fix one anomalous statistic in his extraordinary career. Defending champion Federer, who was leading Hyeon Chung 6-1, 5-2 when the Korean retired in the second set of their Australian Open semifinal on Friday night, is within one win of a 20th Grand Slam singles title. Going into the match against Chung, Federer had a below-par semifinals record at Melbourne Park, only six wins out of 13.

In his 20-year professional career, Federer has mastered the art of giving interviews. On Tuesday night, however, Federer was in for a bizarre experience.

Here's how the awkward exchange panned out: WF: Roger, tonight you seemed like a gazelle out there on the court.
MELBOURNE, Australia — Rafael Nadal has fended off Grigor Dimitrov in five long sets to set up a vintage title match against Roger Federer at the Australian Open, where every singles finalist is aged 30 or over.

Roger Federer is back in action at this years 2014 Australian Open and the #fedexpress is on the move.

For starters, he’s hired a new coach , former world #1 Stephen Edenberg who has 6 Grand Slam singles titles to his name. All in all, there’s no doubt it’s been a positive start to the tournament. In Roger Federer’s interview yesterday with Chris McKendry and Brad Glibert he’s all smiles and talks about his new coach, fresh racquet and what’s in store for 2014. Here’s our favorite quote from the interview, where he reminisces giving Stephan Edenberg a call to bring him on as a coach – even the super stars get a bit star struck and nervous too :) “And that’s when I thought of Stephan.

MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — Novak Djokovic has a larger than life presence at the Australian Open. His face smiles at fans from sponsor’s billboards. His voice gives inspirational advice over center-court speakers between matches. There’s even a new addition to Melbourne Park called “Novak’s World,” where fans can slip on virtual reality goggles and feel as if they’re walking in Djokovic’s shoes — as he stretches in the locker room and then walks out onto the court as the crowd roars. During his on-court interview Tuesday, Federer, who is adored by Australian tennis fans, was asked why he hadn’t shown off his “sneak attack” at the Australian Open. “You want to see it?” Federer asked, as the crowd voiced its approval. “All right.

The returning Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal are adding even more than usual to the Australian Open. The duo's injuries in 2016 have seen them slip down the rankings, Nadal to ninth and Federer eight places below him. Expectations are, for the most part, low. With Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray picking up where they left off – winning through to a final, this time in Doha – the world's top two will fancy their chances of meeting in yet another decider at Melbourne Park. The round of 32 – Federer v Nadal, the pair whose epic battles have been reserved for eight major finals and three semis and never earlier at grand slams. Of the past five years, the ninth and 17th seeds have been due to meet in the third round three times – 2012, 2014 and 2016. Federer-Jo-Wilfried Tsonga or Nadal-Richard Gasquet would still be decent battles, but are less appealing.
Roger Federer spoke out about his frustrations with tennis ahead of the Australian Open final. In a fascinating interview, Federer revealed one thing he doesn't like about the game - the fact only one man can win a tournament.

Federer, clearly, is one of those. Back in October, he helped Nadal open his tennis academy in Mallorca, Spain. "I said, 'I wish we could do a charity match or something,'" Federer explained in his on-court interview. "He had the wrist injury, and we were playing with juniors. "A few months later, we're maybe both in the final. I think both of us never thought we'd be here." The four-time Australian Open champion reversed a disturbing trend, winning his first semifinal here after dropping his last five, against Novak Djokovic and Nadal. It took a weak double fault by Wawrinka at the end of the sixth game in the fifth set to finally make the match Federer's. Federer's famously diverse game has always been unnaturally fluid and flexible. After taking six months away from the game to rehabilitate his injured knee, there's been a freshness in his movements around the court at Rod Laver Arena this fortnight.

MELBOURNE (Reuters) - Australian Open tournament director Craig Tiley has defended giving Roger Federer "prime time" treatment at the year's first grand slam, saying it. In a statement issued by Tennis Australia on Wednesday, Tiley said players and fans were "obviously at the forefront" when scheduling matches but added that there was no way of pleasing everyone all the time. "In terms of players and their appeal, it needs to be said that Roger Federer is a once-in-a-generation player widely regarded as one of the biggest 'box office' athletes in the world," Tiley said. "He has been regularly voted Australia's favourite athlete. The fans demand his appearance in the big stadiums and our broadcasters naturally want his ma

The similarities are striking between this Australian Open and the 2017 Wimbledon event, and not just because it is all coming down to Federer vs. Cilic.

Cilic, on the other hand, has again battled through several three-hour affairs to keep his hopes alive for a second Grand Slam triumph. Injuries plagued the All-England Club festivities, with Novak Djokovic retiring in the quarterfinals, Andy Murray barely managing to complete his quarterfinal loss, Stan Wawrinka not playing again the rest of the season follow
Thirty-five-year-old Roger Federer sputtered his way to the championship round of the Australian Open. Though his all-Swiss semifinal against Stan Wawrinka looked like a gutsy struggle on paper—five sets! 7-5, 6-3, 1-6, 4-6, 6-3!—it actually lasted just over three hours, and the two major inflection points were injury timeouts. This was a match in fits and starts, with each player taking their turn to string some points together, with Federer seizing the last few to claim a spot in the final. In the first two sets Federer looked quick with his movement and easy in his approaches, prowling the net 17 times in the first set and 12 times in the second. His preference in this matchup was to keep points succinct and ultra-aggressive, rather than letting Wawrinka get comfortably anchored on the baseline, where his heavy groundstrokes tend to overwhelm opponents.
Roger Federer shrugged off a decade of grand slam heartbreak against Rafa Nadal, felling his great rival 6-4 3-6 6-1 3-6 6-3 in a classic Australian Open final to capture his 18th major title.

With the Australian Open on the horizon (play begins Jan. 15), there again are doubts about the fitness of a number of the top players in the men's draw. As Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray struggled for fitness in 2017, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal took full advantage by winning two Grand Slams apiece. But what condition are the ATP's premier players in going into the first slam of 2018? Here's a breakdown of how things are shaping up for the usual suspects at major tournaments.
MELBOURNE, Australia — As Roger Federer cried while accepting his 20th Grand Slam title, Rod “Rocket” Laver took a chance to snap a picture for posterity. Federer has won more major tennis titles than any man, including a record-equaling six on the court that bears the great Rod Laver’s name at Melbourne Park. This one, following a tension-filled, momentum-swinging 6-2, 6-7 (5), 6-3, 3-6, 6-1 win over Marin Cilic in Sunday’s Australian Open final, was a keeper. He joked in a TV interview that “I couldn’t lift my head, I was so embarrassed.” Surely, it’s only an embarrassment of riches. Federer arrived in Melbourne at the start of 2017 after an extended injury layoff and on a Grand Slam title drought that dated back to 2012 at Wimbledon. Having successfully defended his Australian title, Federer has now won three of the last five majors in a stunning career resurgence. “I’m so happy.
