Roger Federer sounds more than ready for 2015. Speaking to the press in Brisbane today, Federer said he’s feeling great and full of motivation for the new season.
“I’m healthy, I’m eager to attack again this year,” said Federer. “So I’m really exicited.”
When we last saw Federer, he was dealing with a back injury, but the Swiss says he’s feeling good now.
“I’ve had no hiccups in preparation,” he said. “I never had to stop a practice.”
Federer is coming off a terrific bounce-back season; Slam titles, though, are still on his mind.
“Overall, it was a great season for me,” said Federer looking back. “I was consistent and I was playing positive, attacking tennis, the exact way I want to play. I gave myself quite a few chances at the Slams. I want to go one step further, because being close is not quite good enough.”
Federer will open play Wednesday night in Brisbane against either a qualifier of Australian John Millman.
“I am unbelievably pumped up for this week. It’s a really good field, with a lot of promising players.”
