“It’s Not Realistic to Repeat 2017”: Federer“It’s Not Realistic to Repeat 2017”: Federer

Roger Federer, seeded 2nd for the first Grand Slam of the year (Australian Open) would be looking to repeat his 2017 historical success but the Swiss maestro Federer says it is not realistic to have same results this year around.

Federer, who had a 6 month rest at the latter end of 2016, came back strongly to clinch the Australian open in spectacular fashion. He also went on to win four masters’ titles and another Wimbledon crown.

However, this time around he thinks it is not realistic to see the same results as 2017.

Current world no.2 arrived at Perth for Hopman Cup at the midnight of Thursday earlier this week. The tournament website reported in their interview at the airport that the Swiss ace was not aiming high this season.

Roger Federer speaks

’It’s totally different this time around. I had a great off-season. I mean, I did have a good off season too last year but I just wasn’t sure what to expect. Now expectations are higher but at the same time I try to remind myself I just don‘t think it’s normal and realistic to aim for the same things I did this year in 2017”, Roger Federer discussed.

Federer said Hopman Cup will work as perfect tournament for his Australian Open practice, “I’ve got to try and keep it cool. Try my best and see what happens but the preparation’s been good so far. We’ll see how things go”, he also added, ‘‘it worked out perfectly this year, (winning) at the Australian Open. Of course, that’s a good omen. I hope that winning or losing the Hopman Cup is going to be good for me. Obviously looking ahead to Melbourne, I really hope that Hopman Cup’s going to give me everything I need here. I had a wonderful time (in 2017). I can’t wait to see all the fans again because they came out in big numbers and supported me.’

Hopman Cup schedule for Roger Federer : 

Federer began his Hopman cup campaign earlier today, against Japan’s Yuichi Sugita. The Swiss looked in prime form as he won the match in straight sets. He is also scheduled to play mixed doubles with his compatriot Belinda Bencic.

On January 2, he & Belinda Bencic will play against Khachanov and Pavlyuchenkova, on January 4 against Sock and Vandeweghe.
