Roger Federer spoke about what's next for him after his US Open five-set loss to Grigor Dimitrov. The Swiss said he will enjoy some time off with his wife Mirka and their four children, then he will go back to the practice courts to prepare ahead of the Laver Cup.
that takes place in Geneva from 20 to 22 September. Federer will then play the Rolex Shanghai Masters, a charity match in Japan, the Swiss Indoors in Basel, maybe Paris and then the ATP Finals in London. "That's the schedule for now.
I don't know if the team have other ideas or not", said Federer, who will also play some exhibition matches in South America including one with Alexander Zverev on November 23 in Mexico. Just before the match against Dimitrov, Federer had said: "Since Montreal 2017 against Alexander Zverev where all of a sudden I felt the back again, I only had minor issues, but nothing so severe that could really threaten my career, if you feel like this, you also gain more confidence in your body."
Dimitrov said: "It was one of those days that when I was serving for the match, I was just as relaxed in a sense that I was able to control my nerves pretty good, control my shots, and taking the right decision. That's the most important. Clearly I had three first serves, good points. That for sure helped as well."
