David Goffin has with his excellent autumn made quite an impression on the world. According to Roger Federer, that of Goffin lost at the Masters, the 27-year-old Also look forward to a knalseizoen in which he is hard to beat. Federer and Goffin come together, if they are on the road trip, against in the quarter-finals of the Australian Open.

He knows even better now how he is great match will need to address and the best players are the fire, the shins can explain,” said Federer on Sunday on the eve of the Australian Open in Melbourne. “That he gave me and Rafa could beat at the same tournament, a feat that he perhaps will not be able to repeat it. The final of the Davis Cup to reach him grow as a player. So I think he will be hard to beat. In terms of age, he is sitting in his best years. He is a difficult opponent, without a doubt.”

Last year I groped what is in the darkness since I returned from injury. I found myself in the situation where Djokovic and Wawrinka today are. Now it is different. Of course I hope a number of victories to books, but that’s why I see myself not as a favorite. I don’t think that a player of 36 years, the favorite of a tournament can be.”
