Roger Federer: Why another Wimbledon title is my goal

Roger Federer says that winning an eighth Wimbledon title would be his first choice if he could win one more Major

Roger Federer has revealed that winning another Wimbledon title would be his first choice if he could add just one more trophy to his Grand Slam collection.

The Swiss maestro won his seventh title at SW19 back in 2012 when he beat Andy Murray in the final at the All England Club.

And the 33-year-old says that triumphing once again at the prestigious tournament would be his first pick if he were to win one more Major.

“It would be my favourite choice if I had a choice right now,” Federer said, speaking at a news conference ahead of Tuesday’s BNB Parabas Showdown exhibition at Madison Square Garden in New York against Grigor Dimitrov.

“I’d love to win Wimbledon. I think it’s possible, and I think if I win Wimbledon it’s more cool for me personally, and my team and Swiss people and my fans.”

Federer, who won his seventh title in Dubai last month, believes that Rafael Nadal has a realistic chance of eclipsing his record haul of 17 Grand Slams.

“Who knows? Rafa has the best shot if he wins the French Open a few more times and if I don’t win any more he can catch me quickly,” he added.

“I guess Novak [Djokovic] is still a long shot but it really depends on how dominant his next years are going to be.

“They have to be very dominant because Rafa and me, we both are still playing. It’s not like we’re both retired or anything.

“I’m more focused on me than on them. I hope to make it more difficult on them but at the end of the day records are there to be broken.”
