Roger Federer reveals what was his perfect match in career

In an interview to SportWeek magazine Roger Federer spoke about the perfect match he played in his career. The Basel native said: "It's difficult to make a choice", admitted Federer. "I would say the 2007 Wimbledon final.

Me and Rafael Nadal really played some good tennis. I won my fifth Wimbledon title in a row, at the fifth set, under Bjorn Borg's eyes, who was my idol and in the end he stood up to clap. If a perfect day exists, it would be very similar to that Sunday in July 2007.

But there would also be the 2009 Wimbledon final that I won 16-14 in the fifth against Andy Roddick, also the 2003 final against Mark Philippoussis where I won my maiden Grand Slam title." Federer also spoke about his relationship with Italy: "I used to come here on holidays with my family.

In 1990 I was in Genoa watching the match between Italy and Argentina, World Cup semifinals, when Baggio and Maradona played, Schillaci and Caniggia scored, and I cried for Italians' loss at penalties. I won my first ATP title in Milan and I always enjoy myself at the Rome Open.

I like your mountains and all your beaches. I just have one regret: I come here too less." In Monte Carlo the 34-year-old Stan Wawrinka recalled his 2014 Monte Carlo Masters title that he got by beating Roger Federer in the final: "This has always been one of the best tournaments, and we like Monte-Carlo very much.

And the fact of actually having won here is very special for me. We all think that Monte-Carlo is a very nice tournament. We feel that way. We say it. We all say that. For me, winning here, the final against Roger on that occasion, was just fantastic and I have great memories of that."
