“Very few players have been able to play great tennis into their 30s, I don’t know if anyone has played as well as Roger at his age,” the Olympic gold winner said.

“Federer has earned all the support he gets. Everywhere in the world. All losses hurt, especially in the major events. Here it’s always tough.”
