Motivated Federer targets ninth Wimbledon crown

Roger Federer's new Uniqlo ad for comfy jeans slammed as'hideously bad

After returning to the top of the game on the back of winning back-to-back Australian Open titles in 2017 and 2018 as well as Wimbledon two years ago, Federer has struggled to recapture that form the past year.

Federer crashed out of the Australian Open last month to Stefanos Tsitsipas as Djokovic went on to win his 15th Grand Slam.

"Wimbledon obviously, also now Dubai, Indian Wells and Miami", he said when asked about his goals during the launch of the 2019 Laver Cup in Geneva.

In Geneva on Friday to launch the third edition of the Laver Cup, Federer mapped out his goals for the season with the hunger of a man carrying half his 37 years.

"I really would like to make a good season start".

"One of the very special things about the Laver Cup, and I think the one that resonates most with both the players and the fans, is how we get to team up with our traditional rivals, those players we face across the net week in and week out on tour".

Roger Federer is unconcerned by his recent slide down the ATP rankings and insists he's happy to drop even further as long as he can keep challenging Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic for the biggest titles.

The Galaxy M10 and M20 have been a sales hit on their global debut in the highly competitive mid-range smartphone market in India. Other specs include a slightly smaller 236 mAh battery, wireless charging, Bluetooth 4.2, NFC for Samsung Pay, and WiFi.

"I continue my career..." I'm motivated, I feel good and I'm looking forward to the future.

Exactly a year after Roger Federer regained the No1 ranking in Rotterdam, having just lifted his 20th Major title in Australia, the Swiss star admitted in Geneva today that reaching No1 again is no longer a priority.

For the September 20-22 Laver Cup, Bjorn Borg captains Europe, with John McEnroe in charge of Team World.

Federer has been told that a wildcard has been kept aside for him at the Monte-Carlo Masters, which Djokovic is also yet to commit to, while it's likely he will play either Madrid or Rome to finalise his preparations for the clay Slam.

"I can't wait. We talked about it in Melbourne, we talked about how excited [Rafa] was, and me too, that we're going to be on the same team again".

In that time, top-ranked men Djokovic and Nadal have shared the four majors among themselves with the Serb now holding the Wimbledon, US Open and Australian Open titles.
