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.

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 ATP World Tour Finals in London by a significant margin.

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’.

The Swiss defeated Rafael Nadal 6-3, 6-4 to win the Miami Open on Sunday and continue his outstanding start to the year.

Since returning from his six month injury lay-off, Federer has also won the Australian Open and Indian Wells.
