Nothing can be said about what Roger Federer has achieved over the year and to explain it in mere words is an ample task on its own – that is how wonderful the Swiss Maestro’s career has been. Speaking to the media and reflection on the years that have gone by, the World No 2 reveals that he believes that his best years came from 2005 to 2007 – a time period during which he won two Australian Open title, three US Open titles and three Wimbledon’s. “I consider I had one of my best years from 2005-2007 so of course I was confident going on court,” Federer said.
“I was in a zone and it is really important to be there for the longest possible time. Enjoy it, add titles, live the dream. As a kid I wanted to be a professional and be able to play big matches in big stadiums, that was what it was all about for me.
I’ve been more successful than I’ve ever thought I was going to be. If I wanted more success I had to work harder and sacrifice some things.”
Having won so much, you would expect that down the years Federer would just take a step back and not be hassled by the busy schedules of the ATP Tour but the Swiss maestro further revealed that he has a proper goal in mind.
And even though, he has probably won everything in his career, he still enjoys going out there on the court. “My life has changed, my mindset different,” Federer said. “My titles, my records are all there so I feel less pressure.
I don’t want to say I’m less driven but I’m in a really good place right now. I enjoy playing tennis with a proper goal in mind—that’s what’s important to me. I enjoy practice, enjoy traveling, enjoy the matches, everything that surrounds the game.” Also Read: Novak Djokovic v Roger Federer, who will win? Italian Open Men`s Singles Final Preview .
