Roger Federer has a decorated list of achievements that stretches out behind him. 17 Grand Slams. 302 weeks at world number one. And an incredible reel of highlights.
What he’s concerned with though, is what lies in front of him and where he’s placed in world tennis at the present moment. Federer has been inside the top ten since 2002 but his rank slipped at the end of last year. What happens in 2014 will reveal if he’s in the dusk of his career or at the beginning of an unbelievable resurgence.
“I enjoyed the position I was in as a tennis player. I was to blame when I lost. I was to blame when I won. And I really like that, because I played soccer a lot too, and I couldn’t stand it when I had to blame it on the goalkeeper.”
