Roger Federer has labeled his most recent win at the 2017 Australian Open a ‘team victory’ for all the sacrifices they had to make in the last years. The 18-time Grand Slam champion admitted that doubts had crept in after four-and-a-half years without a major title, but was delighted to get back to winning ways in Melbourne earlier this year.
The Swiss ace missed the last six-months with a knee injury and last won a Grand Slam at Wimbledon in 2012. The Australian Open was Federer’s first ranking tournament since July last year and he surprised everyone including himself by making it to the summit clash and more so when he beat Rafael Nadal to lift the title.
“Just everything that I’ve gone through the last six months, or even a year for that matter, or the last five years where I didn’t win a slam, where I was doing the right things but you don’t know if it’s ever going to pay off, you know? I feel this was very much a team victory this one’, Federer said, as quoted by tennisworldusa.org.
Federer returned to the courts for the first time since Australia at the Dubai Tennis Championships this week, but has indicated that he will take more breaks during the course of the season. Winning Grand Slam titles is the former world number one’s main goal and he is aware that Wimbledon is his best chance of another major title this year.
