Tennis - The Rotterdam tournament director speaks about Roger's 18th Grand Slam title


The 1996 Wimbledon champion and current ATP Rotterdam director Richard Krajicek commented on Roger Federer's Australian Open title. Krajicek said he 'was very impressed' by the level the Swiss player showed. 'I think he played some good matches in Australia. I liked much the match against Nishikori and Obviously against Nadal and Wawrinka as well, even if this last one was up and down by both sides.'

Speaking about the final, Krajicek said: 'I think Federer didn't want to face Nadal. He had lost many matches against him especially in the big stages. But this time he managed to beat him breaking back in the fifth set.'

Krajicek tried to bring Federer in Rotterdam this year as well as contacting his management after the withdrawals of Stan Wawrinka and Rafael Nadal, but the Swiss player is currently practicing and will comeback in the ATP 500 of Dubai.
