Ken Rosewall is not worried about Roger Federer possibly beating his record as the oldest male player to win the Australian Open In an interview earlier this week, Rosewall said: "If anyone deserves to beat the record, Roger does.
Like many people I'm a fan. " On Nick Kyrgios's ups and downs, Rosewall added: "Everyone would like to support Nick more, I think, because people enjoy watching him play with his ability. Just sometimes when he doesn’t give it 100 per cent effort, he upsets a lot of his fans”.
Recollecting his own days as a player, Rosewall said how he never chose to move out of Australia for scheduling purposes. “A lot of tennis players have chosen to live in America. I never did," Rosewall confirmed.
"Even in the earlier days I was away from my family a lot and, when I got tired, I pulled out of the tour for two weeks and just had a rest. You’ve got to try to plan it a little bit." Federer had a perfect start to his 2019 season winning all the four singles matches he played at the Hopman Cup in Perth defeating Cameron Norrie, Frances Tiafoe, Stefanos Tsitsipas and Alexander Zverev.
