Roger Federer reveals which two aspects of his game he plans to improve
Roger Federer says there are two main areas of his game he’d like to improve upon during the close season.
Defeat to Alexander Zverev at the ATP Finals on Saturday ended his 2018 season, but he has dismissed any suggestion it could be his last.
Indeed, even at 37-years-old, Federer has identified where he wants his game to improve.
“As far as tennis is concerned, it would like to find its way back to the net more often,” he said.
“And of course I want to whip the forehand right again.

“Then there is the condition training with Pierre (Paganini).
“Of course, deciding whether to play sand or not has an impact on the training program.”
As well as revealing his training goals for the close season, Federer has confirmed his plans for the next couple of months.
“We are on vacation until the beginning of December.
“Then we come back, and for me the preparation begins in Dubai.
“Then I fly to Perth at the end of the year and prepare for the Hopman Cup.
“My first match is on the 30th against Great Britain.”
