Roger Federer says he plans to play the clay-court season after skipping it for two successive years, admitting he has "missed not doing it". The Swiss 20-time Grand Slam champion has not played a clay tournament since the 2016 Italian Open. Federer, 37, was beaten by eventual champion Stan Wawrinka in his last appearance at the French Open in 2015. After winning titles in Australia and Miami on his return in 2017, Federer said he planned to only play the French Open as he was "not 24 any more".

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.

Federer evaluated the win as more of an emotional relief in his post-match media interview, per the official website of the Australian Open: The magnitude of this match is going to feel different.

Australian Open tournament director Craig Tiley has defended giving Roger Federer "prime time" treatment at the year's first grand slam, saying it was a matter of meeting fans and broadcasters' demands for the "box office" athlete. 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 matches to air in prime time.

Roger Federer did it. Federer, the 35-year-old tennis legend who hadn’t played a match in six months, won the Australian Open on Sunday by beating Rafael Nadal, Federer’s younger, fit, fabulous nemesis who had beaten Federer 23 times in his career and nine times—out of 11—at Grand Slam tournaments. More amazing still: Federer looked doomed. He won the first set, lost the second, won the third, lost the fourth and then trailed by a break of serve, 2-0, in the fifth set.

Roger Federer was in for quite a surprise when Will Ferrell stepped onto the court of the Australian Open tennis tournament on Sunday and started interviewing the tennis legend as his “Anchorman” character Ron Burgundy. Ferrell interrupted Federer’s chat with former player John McEnroe, and intentionally screwed up McEnroe’s last name. “In the immortal words of Ron Burgundy, it’s great to be here with two tennis legends, Roger Federer and John McIntosh,” Ferrell said.

With his Australian Open win over Marin Cilic, Roger Federer earned his 20th career grand slam title. Just as importantly, the win extends his lead in that category over Rafael Nadal from 3 to 4, which will likely be a decisive factor in deciding who's the Greatest of All Time in men's tennis. It’s not impossible for Nadal to win the French a few more times or maybe add a hardcourt major in Flushing Meadows or Australia. But Nadal had slowed down while he approached 30, winning only one slam in 13 tries between 2014 and last year’s Australian. Just as importantly, between 2012 and 2016.Nadal missed four slams entirely. Furthermore, while surprising comebacks of Nadal and Federer have been a joy to watch, it’s important to remember that they seem to be filling a power vacuum at the top of the men’s game.
MELBOURNE, Australia -- Roger Federer won his 18th Grand Slam title and put some extra distance on the all-time list between himself and Rafael Nadal, the man he beat 6-4, 3-6, 6-1, 3-6, 6-3 in a vintage Australian Open final on Sunday night. It was the 35-year-old Federer’s first major title since Wimbledon in 2012, his first in Australia since 2010, and it reversed the status quo against his nemesis, Nadal. “Against Rafa it’s always epic,” Federer said in a television interview. “This one means a lot to me because he’s caused me problems over the years.” Roger Federer 21 photos.
