In an interview Roger Federer picked the most special matches wins in his career. The Swiss said: "Maybe the one against Juan Carlos Ferrero in the 2004 Austrian player semifinals which allowed me to become world No. 1 for the first time in my career.
Marat Safin too in 2002 Hamburg, which brought me on the top ten. I think I got to the eighth position. And of course my final against Mark Philippoussis in 2003 Wimbledon." On his feelings toward the French Open, Federer added: "It's a bit more than Grand Slam.
Lifting the cup for the first time, hearing the National inner, was an unbelievable shacking and when I think about it, I see the images again, touched me a lot. One of the most special moments in my career." Asked how important would be to win a gold medal in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, Federer replied: "The first thing is that I do not know if I will play or not, Tokyo is far away, I do not even know how the qualifiying criteria are, because rules changed, because the Davis Cup changed too.
Olympics are not a goal and many people think my career ending should be perfect. But I do not see it like this. I could have retired after my epic final against Rafael Nadal in the 2017 Australian Open. Because I do not know if there will be room for improvements. If I feel well and happy, I will go to Tokyo."
