Roger Federer is an artist, says Viktorija Golubic

The WTA player Viktorija Golubic praised Roger Federer for his legacy and for being a great tennis player and person. Golubic said: 'There is not a word to describe Roger. He is simply great and, like for many his fans, he has been my idol.

It's a pleasure to admire him with the racket in his hand: he is an artist. The most unbelievable thing is that at almost 37 years he still plays at a very high level and he is able to constantly surprise. I always tried to imitate his attitude and movement, especially the backhand, and the same thing happened with (Stan) Wawrinka.' About Lugano, where she played the WTA event this year, Golubic added: 'I love the lake and the environment.

It's a really nice city. I was in Ticino for the first time in 2010 to play the team competition. Sometimes I visited some typical places there feeling very comfortable. I will definitely be back there in the future.' On Martina Hingis, Golubic added: 'She was an example for me.

It's unbelievable how she was able to have success being so young. She always played a very smart tennis and it's a pleasure to see her on court. Everyone knows her, she is great. Our first meeting gets dated back to when she was the Fed Cup team captain and from then our relationship grew over the years, even on a private level.

I was really proud to meet her.' ALSO READ: Rafael Nadal: Worse players than David Ferrer won a Grand Slam title
