The Swiss maestro, however, aims to win the remaining tournaments of the season, which includes the Swiss Indoors in his hometown; Basel, the last Masters 1000 tournament of the season – Rolex Paris Masters and the ATP Finals in London.
The 38-year-old hopes to convert a good season into a better one as he suggested that he has high hopes for the end of the season and achieve something big.
In an interview to SRF, talking about his objectives for the end of the season, Roger Federer said: “I have high hopes for the end of the season to achieve something big here in Basel, maybe in Paris and especially in London, to turn this season from a good one into a fantastic one.”
Roger Federer, who has made the Basel final on all of his last 12 visits, claimed ATP titles this season in Dubai, Miami, and Halle and also reached the finals at the Indian Wells Masters and Wimbledon Championships.
In spite of not adding to his tally of 20 Grand Slam titles, Roger Federer still stands at 47-8 for the 2019 season so far with a winning percentage of 85.5 percent, a record bettered only by his arch-rival Rafael Nadal, whose triumphs at Roland Garros and the US Open have taken the Spaniard to 19 major titles and a winning percentage of 88.9 percent in 2019.
Roger Federer will face Peter Gojowczyk in the first round of the Swiss Indoors Basel, which will also be his 1,500th tour-level match.
“I feel like it’s been a very solid season. It started very well for me and I hope to pick it up now for the year-end,” Federer said. “I love playing indoors as well and I hope it’s going to all happen in Base and that I’ll bounce back a little bit.”
