For Roger Federer, it’s just a small goal number one of the world remain. Not more. That said, the Swiss on Thursday in the margins of the Masters 1.000 tournament in Miami, where he is the defending champion. Federer must be the quarter-finals reached in Miami in order that ‘mini-lens’ to get.
“The first place in the ATP ranking is a little bit in my head, but that’s where it stops”, opened Federer. “It is a ‘mini-objective’. It would be nice to be number one, but also not more. To first to continue I need to win races. It helps me to motivate, but as I the first place to lose, it is also not the end of the world.”
If Federer for the semis is turned off, it takes Rafael Nadal, who is out with a beenblessure and does not participate in Miami, the first place again. “The goal was, again, number one,” continued Federer. “Either in Rotterdam, or in Dubai or Indian Wells. My victory at the Australian Open for the opportunities provided.” The Swiss reached his goal already in Rotterdam.
He gave further to know well in his skin to feel, despite the defeat in the final against the Argentine Juan Martin del Potro previous Sunday at the Masters 1.000 tournament in Indian Wells. “Physically, I need several days to recover after such a finale. Mentally, the mustache, because I think I have a good tournament behind me.”
