Roger Federer’s comeback in 2017 has to be one of the most splendid stories that sport could ever produce. All those agonising years of coming so close to a Grand slam win and missing out were wiped away by that one splendid burst in the Australian Open, where a renewed and rejuvenated Federer glided past his opponents, with grace and grit.
Federer had put all his chips in, but little did we know that he was holding all the aces. The maestro had it all planned though, going about his business in the a way that suited him the best(playing to his strengths).
Talking about the 2018 season, Roger Federer seemed very optimistic about repeating his heroics last season, as he feels he is healthy and motivated enough to challenge for top honours.
“Coming off the back of this season is already so exciting” Federer said.
“I just can’t wait to come back to all the tournaments I played so well this year, you know.
“This year was so surprising in so many ways that I just hope I can play well again in Australia, do well again at Wimbledon.
“So we’ll see what happens, but I am just so happy and healthy and still enjoying myself.” Federer added.
Federer will begin the next season in Perth, playing the Hopman Cup. The Australian Open will be his first big tournament and if he can put on a show like last year, he would be favourite to win ‘Down Under’.
Federer is currently enjoying his off-season, working on his back, and recuperating from all the damage that his body suffered during the 2017 season.
