Speaking yesterday after a win over Tomas Berdych in his ATP Finals opener, Roger Federer talked about his next opponent Novak Djokovic. And he commented he didn’t think he was far off from Djokovic in terms of ranking points which has the Serb with over a 7,000 point lead.
“That depends on who looks at the gap,” Federer told Reuters. “I don’t think I’m that far off.”
Federer will face Djokovic on Tuesday in London in a match-up of the only former champions in the field. The two are tied 21-21 with Djokovic winning four of the last five including the US Open final.
“Let’s speak in two days. Two days is not the match that I care the most about, to be quite honest,” Federer said of facing Djokovic. “It’s an important match, very important. But it’s not the match. It’s going to be interesting to see how I play that one. I’m curious to find out myself.”
Both Federer and Djokovic go into the match with 1-0 records.
“Because of the three days off I had after Paris, I think I’m really fresh,” Federer added. “Even though I’m looking forward to my vacation, I can tell you that, I feel very happy to be here and very happy about my state of mind and body as well.”
