Six-time ATP World Tour Finals champion Roger Federer assessed his difficult Group B which includes Novak Djokovic, Juan Martin del Potro and Richard Gasquet.
“Novak is playing great,” said Federer at a media conference today in London. ‘He has won every tournament he has played over the last few. He has a lot of confidence and is playing really well.
“Juan Martin the same, I just played him too. He has reached semis or finals or better in the tournaments he has played. The question is, how fit or how much energy has he got left? I expect him to be tough to beat.
“Richard has played a lot of tennis this year, especially at the back end ever since the US Open. He has really tried to make it to the ATP World Tour Finals. He made it, credit to him. He is playing well as well.”
Federer is playing some of his best tennis of the season. After poor results most of the year, Roger has recently reached the finals of Basel and the semis in Paris where he tooks sets in losses to Del Potro and Djokovic, respectively.
After dealing with a bad back and racquet issues, Federer is finally feeling good again.
“I feel like it is coming together at the right time for me,” he added.
Federer will make his 12th straight appearance at the ATP Finals on Tuesday evening against Djokovic.
