Federer reveals double target

January 07, 2015 18:03:50 UK

Roger Federer is still on the hunt for more grand slam success.

Roger Federer has revealed that he would like to win both the Australian Open and Wimbledon in 2015.

The 33-year-old Swiss world number two and 17-time grand slam winner bounced back from a nightmare injury-hit 2013 last year as he won 73 matches on the men’s tour – more than any other player – and claimed five ATP Tour titles in the process.

Federer, who is preparing for this month’s first grand slam event in Melbourne at this week’s Brisbane International, admitted that he might cut down on the number of games he plays in 2015, but he still has ambitions to win more big titles.

I would probably dream of winning Wimbledon once more. I just want to stay healthy and play good tennis and enjoy myself.

His immediate target is to win the Australian Open this month, while his “dream” is to lift the Wimbledon crown for an eighth time in his illustrious career which could also see him usurp Novak Djokovic in the world number one spot.

“I’m not sure if I’m going to play as much this year,” Federer told Sky Sports. “I will have to win even more matches because I will most likely play less tournaments – we’re talking a couple here and there.

“I can definitely play another good season. I finished so strongly in the last six months so there’s no reason to think negatively at this point. At the same time, I know how well prepared all the other players are.”

He added: “I would love to win the Australian Open. It would get me really close to being world No 1, plus it would mean I would win another Grand Slam.

“But if that wasn’t possible, then I would probably dream of winning Wimbledon once more. I just want to stay healthy and play good tennis and enjoy myself.”

Federer is 1.90 to win the Brisbane Invitational, while he can be backed at 7.00 to win the Australian Open and 6.50 to claim the Wimbledon title.
