Roger Federer, Microsoft's Gates to play doubles for charity


Roger Federer, of Switzerland, poses for a photograph in front of the Miami skyline after defeating Rafael Nadal in the men's singles final at the Miami Open tennis tournament, Sunday, April 2, 2017, in Miami.

All of which suggests Federer believes his best chance of adding further Slams to his CV will be on Wimbledon grass or NY hard court, rather than Paris clay.

"The second part of the season is the big priority".

"I would rather take a step back and then really come back with a lot of energy and happiness", Federer said.

Federer is having quite the 2017.

Federer is enjoying an outstanding start to the season, and since returning from a 6-month lay-off, he has won the Australian Open and the Indian Wells. Nadal's results in Masters 1000 series have been on a downfall after 2013, with just two titles under his name, and it will be interesting to see can he become the 7th player who clinched the crown after turning 30 (the first since Ferrer) in the following 3 clay court events, where he rulled supremely in the past.

"But my physio, my fitness guy, thought that could be a good thing not to be too much on clay". "I am at a very high level of tennis, and I believe I am ready to win titles".

"That is why this break coming now in the clay court season and focusing everything now on the French, the grass and then the hard courts after that is going to be the key for me", he added. The French Open I guess, to some extent, we will see what happens, no pressure there really.

The victory was his fourth straight win over Nadal and extended his winning run to 11 matches.

The second set took an nearly identical path, albeit with fewer openings to break for both players until Federer again pounced, to grab a 5-4 lead when Nadal went long returning a fine backhand.

"The match with Nick and Federer was possibly one of the greatest matches outside a grand slam that I've ever seen", Larkham explained, as quoted by the Canberra Times. With that in mind, he plans to wait until a couple of weeks before the French to start practicing on clay. "What a start to the year, thank you to my team and all who have supported me, especially in my more hard challenging times last year".

Meanwhile, Federer is slated to miss the clay-court season and participate only at Roland Garros before the Wimbledon.

"I think, I am close to what I need to be", he said.

"It was a positive tournament for me obviously".
