Despite the troubles and the losses this year, Roger Federer still think he has the game and the ability to dominate anyone when he’s at his very best.
Speaking to the press in Hong Kong, he said, “I’m a strong believer that when I’m at my best I can beat anyone, I can even dominate anyone but there’s many guys around that play really, really well and Rafa, being the number one guy, is a tough guy to beat.”
Rafa, a tough guy to beat? Check.
Federer, who’ll be the No. 3 seed in Shanghai next week, added that “Stories in tennis move around very quickly. I went through a bad patch as well and I got back to world number one by winning last year’s French and Wimbledon and playing really well through the American summer as well.”
Federer’s always been a man of confidence, which is partly what has made him so great. If he think he can still dominate, good for him. At age 29 he’s not getting any younger and I think his days of “domination” on a regular basis are now over.
But I give him credit, he never holds back while keeping that positive attitude.
