HalleWith an account of 98 ATP titles, among which 20 are directly from the Grand Slam events – we can excuse the legend Roger Federer on skipping out on all of his achievements. We do understand that keeping all the winning news tabs open is difficult. This interview excerpt is from the Express and the points he shared about his upcoming games.
Roger Federer gets confused on his Halle win during one Interview!
This Swiss legend is now focussing on his next 100th title at the US Open game which is going to be conducted the next coming fortnight.
He was asked about his journey so far, and about his preparation for the game after skipping on the Rogers Title. On this, he mentioned that he wanted to focus on one competition at a time, as he was avoiding getting in too much tennis.
He also said that the preparations were similar to the ones that he had done for the Wimbledon games. He even added that he almost forgot the success he had at the grass court sessions in 2017.
‘Though it was not much tiring. I think an overall game depends mainly on the grass court season, it was a tough one’. That’s how Roger responded to the preparations.
Then he continued saying – ‘This year it was difficult on the grass court, making it tougher than the previous year. Still, I end up winning both the Wimbledon and the Halle, hey did I win Halle? (smiling) yes, I did.’
‘I will be playing a lot of matches with the grass courts, and after that five-setter that I had with the Anderson- there are many points that you need to take care of as you can’t go for just a straight-cut at the Wimbledon.’
‘I don’t want to come hurt at the Opens match. This is why I decided to keep it low this year on purpose. Also, being clear on not playing the game in advance helped me in planning the practice session well.’
He also wished to spend more time with his family instead of traveling and playing all year. In the next game, Federer will take on Kyrgios in the day session! Stay Tuned!
