 After winning the trophy at Melbourne, Roger Federer said, he had “no idea” how long he could continue playing at the highest level. “I’ve won three Slams now in 12 months,” he said. “I can’t believe it myself. I’ve just got to keep a good schedule, stay hungry, then maybe good things can happen. Then I don’t think age is an issue, per se. It’s just a number.

“But I need to be very careful in my planning, really decide beforehand what are my goals, what are my priorities. I think that’s what’s going to dictate how successful I will be”.

We believe, with the player of his caliber, really deserves every recognition from his country or the sporting world.
