Roger Federer's resurgenceComments
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.
