Federer Suggests He'll Play French Open For First Time 2015

TsitsipasFederer- Cropped

Federer has been here before, many times.

"I'm in a phase where I want to have fun", Federer said after his Australian Open exit to Stefanos Tsitsipas.

"I am the happiest man on Earth right now", Tsitsipas said after the match.

More than a few likened it to Federer's win against Pete Sampras 18 years ago, when the young Swiss star beat the legendary American in the round of 16 at Wimbledon. So much respect for him. "I also didn't break him at the Hopman Cup, so clearly something is wrong how I return him, what I'm trying to do". "It's a dream come true", Tsitsipas added. Winning at the end? You know, but I think you go in swings sometimes.

There was only composure and brilliance from the 20-year-old Tsitsipas who became Greece's first Grand Slam quarter-finalist and seems destined for bigger prizes in the near future. He is scheduled to face Stefanos Tsitsipas in the fourth round on Sunday.

Federer was unable to extend his 17-match winning run in the first major of the year, however, Tsitsipas dropping his racket in disbelief when an opponent 17 years his senior netted a backhand on the first match point.

Roger is playing very sharp tennis in Melbourne where he won all his matches in straight sets. I could have cracked at any moment, but I didn't because I really wanted it bad. That's a very good beginning. I love that he feels he is going to make it. "And I used to have long hair, too".

Federer took the decision to skip the last two clay seasons after negotiating several injuries in his thirties.

Thousands of marines have been deployed to guard pipelines and transport has been shut down altogether in places. Taking to Twitter, he said: "I urge the entire population not to be complicit in fuel theft.

Tsitsipas may be set for even bigger prizes, with a semi-final on offer should he beat 22nd-seeded Spaniard Roberto Bautista Agut. His soft hands serve him well on volleys, and he's that rare man who will press forward as often as Federer does and will have almost as much success. At this point, Federer began to lose some of his drive.

Fritz settled in during the second set, only for errors to prove costly in the 11th game, Federer clinching a break with a forehand victor.

Tsisipas erased that chance with a 123 miles per hour (198 kph) serve initially called out, then reversed on a challenge.

Those who have had success against him have typically not played Federer like Federer.

That would signal a pattern.

Federer saw something of his old self in Tsitsipas, a rangy tyro with flowing, blond locks and an unswerving confidence.

"Hung in there, gave himself chances at some points, stayed calm. Credit to him for taking care of that", Federer said.
