Facing Roger Federer in Melbourne was special, says Fucsovics

Marton Fucsovics recalled the highlights of his 2018 season which was very special. 'It was special to face Roger Federer on the Australian Open Rod Laver Arena', said Fucsovics. 'The match against Novak Djokovic at the US Open where he prevailed thanks to his physical strength, he in a big physical shape, so he can handle the longer matches better competing almost at the same level.

And the third one is obviously my first ATP title in Geneva. Now I am feeling a little of pressure, but I am also confident. The best players now know my name.' Commenting on possibly playing alongside his compatriot Timea Babos at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, Fucsovics added: :I never played mixed doubles, so I am sure that me and Timea want to play a Grand Slam together.

The Olympics qualies will start in the summer and it would be big to win a medal in Tokyo Olympics.' On a column for Corriere dello Sport, the journalist Ivan Zazzaroni compared the FC Juventus dominance to the best tennis players and other big sportsmen.

'Now for Serie A, Juventus has become what Ali, Jack Dempsey and Tyson have become in boxing, Merckx in cycling, Federer, Nadal and Serena Williams in tennis, Phelps in swimming, Schumacher in Formula 1, All Blacks in rugby.

43 points in the first 15 matches are achievable only if you compete in a Bulgarian Championship or you are the Paris Saint Germain team in the Ligue 1.'
