Roger Federer's resurgence

<p>Miami Open winner Roger Federer has announced he will probably skip the upcoming European clay court season to focus on claiming an eighth Wimbledon title this summer. </p> <p>The 35-year-old, who has moved to No. 4 in the world rankings from No. 6, currently leads the points race for a spot in the <span class="caps">ATP</span> World Tour Finals in London by a significant margin.</p> <p>Roger Federer: “I may be a bit slower than before when defending because of my age,” explained the 18-time Grand Slam Champion. “But when it comes to attacking shots, I feel as though my style of play has improved. So yes I think the ‘new Federer’ would have a chance against the ‘old Federer’. </p> <p>The Swiss defeated Rafael Nadal 6-3, 6-4 to win the Miami Open on Sunday and continue his outstanding start to the year.</p> <p>Since returning from his six month injury lay-off, Federer has also won the Australian Open and Indian Wells. </p> <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en-gb"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Championship point and the happiness that fills the crowd for <a href="https://twitter.com/rogerfederer"><code>rogerfederer</a>'s victory <a href="https://t.co/LwMsTsTbpi">pic.twitter.com/LwMsTsTbpi</a></p>— Allez Roger (</code>kah22jad) <a href="https://twitter.com/kah22jad/status/848925269306093569">3 April 2017</a></blockquote> <script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>
