I also want to have Fun

A journalist of French sports newspaper "L'equipe" is understood in Madrid, the tennis world. "There's Rafael Nadal, eleven times Roland Garros has won, and here all speak only of Roger Federer ." The 20-times Grand Slam winner after four years, the Madrid Open and for the first time in three years, a sand tournament denies that it is breaking again for the first time the main story before the Masters tournament in the Caja Mágica, where he starts on Tuesday against Richard Gasquet or the a Spaniard, Alejandro Davidovich. In fact, the interview room is crowded on Sunday, as Federer shows up.

you Feel the great anticipation of your Sand-Comeback?
Roger Federer: I can't estimate, because I have not yet played. At the Moment, a lot of Blabla. I hope, however, that there are in the end only two matches here and in Paris. Therefore, the pressure is big, to win a few Matches. And if I could survive three, four rounds in Paris, that would be good. Then I could enjoy the clay court season a bit, instead of being permanently under pressure.

you can now play for three weeks on the Sand. How was the preparation in Switzerland?
Until now, everything was wonderful. I have trained very well, and am physically in shape and I play with great pleasure, on Sand. I had enough time for everything, and my program was as planned, in the fitness area, as in the Tennis . Fortunately, the weather was good at the beginning. However, there were also some windy days. Especially during the two days when I trained with Dan Evans, blew it scary (in felsberg near Chur, Red.). I am very pleased with how I came through the start-up phase.

What was it return to Sand?
So the Coaches moved all the options to be considered employees. On Sand and with the Slip well-being, you need to train but very many hours. The pressure on the thighs and the calves is quite different than on grass. There's more, the explosiveness is asked to Sand more endurance. Because you have to work hard and hard to be ready for anything. So we had started already in December, because the Chance was big that I would play on the Sand.

"The pressure on the
thighs and calves
is quite different than on grass."

there Was in the technical area of special conversions?
On the Sand, you have more opportunities, can more with the angles and ball play. That's what makes it exciting and entertaining. In the training, it was not very difficult. Matches, however, are completely different, because every point counts. Although my expectations are not very high, I know that much is possible. In Madrid it plays because of the altitude. I'm curious how this time will be.

Why do this to yourself ever again?
I think of it as a big challenge. But I want to have enjoy and Fun, it should not be just a fight, and seizures. Even if there is the need, if I want to come through. I'm right in the head.

your sons will celebrate on Monday the fifth birthday. You can be part of it?
you come today (Sunday) to Madrid, I can see you on your birthday. We are going to do something Casual. A balloon is safe.

"I prefer to discuss it sometimes, behind closed doors as the media."

you have determined the evolution of the situation of Justin Gimelstob followed, decided after his conviction for a brawl, from the ATP Board, to withdraw. Your opinion on this?
This is certainly the right step, I'm happy about that. He needs to take distance and its location, and the tennis tour has to look in these challenging times to the front.

it May be that Chris Kermodes contract will be extended as head of the ATP? Gimelstob was with Novak Djokovic as the mastermind in his deselection by the end of the year.
I haven't made myself many thoughts. I don't know the processes in Detail and know whether Kermode really want to. I haven't seen him in a long time.

And Djokovic? You have now discussed it with him?
no. At the moment there is not too much to talk about with him. Although it would be good to know at some point, in which direction the Tour wants to control.

do you Think the case Gimelstob has hurt the Tour? Stan Wawrinka argued in a letter to the London "Times" of the opinion that the Tennis had made complicit, because for a long time is hardly an opinion leader against Gimelstob uttered. Share the charge?
I'm not going to comment on them all of a sudden the social media things, and asked I was not. Also, I prefer to discuss it sometimes, behind closed doors as the media, even if you (reporters) would prefer. (Editorial Tamedia)
