After a disappointing 2013 season, few would have expected Roger Federer to rebound this year the way he has. Entering the last month of the season, the now 33-year-old Federer is best in several key ATP categories.
As of October 13, Roger Federer leads all ATP players this season in…
* Match wins (61)
* Hard court wins (45)
* Outdoor wins (56)
* Final appearances (9)
* Semifinal appearances (11)
* Top 10 wins (13)
* ATP Masters 1000 wins (26)
With three tournaments still on his schedule (Basel, Paris, London) and the Davis Cup, Federer is 16 match wins from No. 1,000. He’s also has a shot at the No. 1 ranking.
“The biggest concern was to be healthy this year,” Federer said yesterday. “That’s something I’m just so pleased about, to see that the hard work I put in last year is paying off. Not only is it paying off, but I’m feeling good, I’m waking up normal. I’m not half broken like I was last year. I’m enjoying myself on the tennis court. I’m playing the way I was hoping I could play again. Everything fell into place. I’m playing a very consistent, solid season.
“I think this year everything is going really well. I have still so many highlights to look forward to for the end of the season, which is very nice. Usually everything slows down at the end of the season. Not for me this time.”
