Roger Federer reveals the reason behind the break he took from tennis

Roger Federer reveals the reason behind the break he took from tennis

Federer missed the majority of the clay court season earlier this year & finally he has talked about the things.

He now says the reason behind his decision was because he started 2017 so well, by winning the Australian Open, as well as in Indian Wells and Miami.

The Swiss legend believes he is at an advantage to his rivals because he is fresher than them having played fewer matches this year.

“Taking sort of nine weeks off in the clay court season wasn’t something actually I had planned,” Roger Federer told Sky Sports.

That only come by me winning the Australian, Indian Wells and Miami.

“That gave me that opportunity that I should maybe take it easy and save myself for the rest of the season.

“So I hope that I will feel the benefit now while other guys are maybe getting a bit tired.

“I’m actually still fresh in a sense because I didn’t play that much this season.

“I’m used to playing 70, 90, 100 matches a season, so this year that’s not the case.

“That’s why I feel refreshed for Shanghai, and also for Paris and London.”

Federer looked good in his 7-6 6-4 victory and will be hoping for more of the same today.

He faces Alexandr Dolgopolov who beat Feliciano Lopez in the round of 32 and Jack Stock in the first round before booking his place against Federer.

He is hoping to claim another couple of titles with the ATP Tour Finals in London coming next month.

“I’m playing mostly, you know, only the big tournaments now, so you need to be really tip-top shape and ready to go, and it’s just not so simple,” said Federer on adding to his title haul.

“I couldn’t be happier with the season, to be quite honest. I’m relieved that I’m feeling better since the American summer, you know, and Canada.

“Just happy being here now and hopefully, to play a good season. It would be nice to pick up one more title, maybe a couple more, would be nice, and then get into training and start again next year and then get more chances next year.”
