Roger Federer opens up on Andy Murray's tough situation

Roger Federer feels confident about an Andy Murray's comeback to a high level. Murray is currently strengthening his body and is set to be back at the Brisbane International. 'I feel you can very quickly play top-30 level', said Federer.

'That level he found quickly and easily, he wasn't 100% so that makes me feel good about his chances. Problem is that he has been No. 1, has won double Olympic gold, it's not enough to play last-16 or quarters. I'm confident if he does feel 100% he can play back to the top.

But I just don't know how he's feeling.' Novak Djokovic also spoke about Murray: 'I don't know in details how severe his injury is or what he's going through. He's a great guy, I have tonnes of respect with him, we grew up together.

I sincerely wish him a speedy recovery. One of the biggest struggles he's going through is who to trust.' Federer is cautious ahead of the tournament: 'Novak is the favourite for the tournament title, the others in the field have to believe that they can beat him and that they can give him a hard time.' About Kei Nishikori, Federer added: 'I love his game: he has one of the best backhands on the Tour and we have had exciting matches.

It was important for me to face him in Paris.' ALSO READ: Rafael Nadal: Worse players than David Ferrer won a Grand Slam title
