Roger Federer says he is “very confident” ahead of his clash with Novak Djokovic in the Wimbledon final on Sunday.
The Swiss star is an eight-time winner at the All England Club and warmed up for this year’s event by claiming a record 10th title on the grass courts of Halle last month.
Federer saw off old rival Rafael Nadal in four sets in the semi-finals at SW19 on Friday, and he says his win over the Spaniard has provided a confidence boost as he bids for a 21st Grand Slam crown.
“This is like a school: the day of the test you’re not going to read many books that day,” said Federer, as reported by the BBC. “I don’t think there’s much I need to do in terms of practice.
“It’s quite clear the work was done way before. I think that’s why I was able to produce a good result today.
It’s been a rock solid year of mine, I won in Halle [for a record 10th time last month], the stars are aligned right now. “From that standpoint I can go into that match very confident.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
