Roger Federer might be 30, might be seeded third and hasn’t won a Grand Slam 2010, but the Swiss isn’t getting down on himself. Speaking to the press today at Wimbledon, Federer said he’s keen on winning a 7th Wimbledon title.
“I am dreaming of the title. There’s no denying that,’ said Federer. “But I’ve [lost] two quarterfinals the last couple years. I want to do better. I have to do better in this event because I could have gone further the last couple. Maybe [I was] a bit unfortunate at times. Maybe the other guys were just too good. Maybe I wasn’t quite at my best. Who knows what the combination was.
“But it’s up to me to make that difference now and take it to the next step. Then once hopefully I am there, I can reach for the title. A seventh would be amazing. I think that would be tying Pete, which I think would be absolutely fantastic obviously, admiring Pete when I was younger.”
Federer, who is again in the same half as Novak Djokovic, will play Albert Ramos in the Spaniard’s Wimbledon debut. If Federer wins the title he’ll return to the No. 1 ranking.
As part of a Rolex spot released earlier in the week, here’s Federer with Indian great Vijay Amritraj.
