‘IT’S TOO MUCH REALLY’
Federer jokes that he has to “take more time off” after his six-month break last year has led to this rather incredible 2017…
“I will be gone again for the next six months! I am not sure it’s going to work out this fantastic every time I come back. Better than holding the trophy is just being healthy, it feels great and means the world to me.
“We worked so hard last year, so to be back, holding the trophy, feeling great, not dropping a set, it’s just magical. I can’t believe it yet. It’s too much really.
“I wasn’t sure if I was ever going to be here again in another final after last year and I’ve had some tough ones losing to Novak, but I always believed and if you believe you can go really far in your life. I kept on believing and dreaming and here I am today.”
