Roger Federer says that despite his loss today to Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, he can still win more Grand Slam titles.
“I think I definitely can, yes,” Federer said when asked about future Slam titles. “I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t the case.”
Federer hasn’t won a Slam since the 2010 Australian Open when he won No. 16. There were signs of hope earlier this month when the Swiss reached the French Open final.
“I thought my game was plenty good enough this year to win the tournament,” Federer said. “Unfortunately there’s only one that can win it, and the rest go home empty handed. That’s what happened to me today. I think Jo played an amazing match, like I said, so obviously it’s disappointing.”
In the match today, Federer jumped out to a quick two-set lead before Tsonga roared back to take the match 36, 76, 64, 64, 64.
“I’m happy, I’m healthy,” Federer said who lost in the quarterfinals. “I feel much better than sort of a year ago. That’s very encouraging really. Even though I took a tough loss today, I don’t feel, you know, discouraged in any way. I think that’s key right now, to not let anything get to me.”
Federer can put a positive spin on just about anything, can’t he?
