Federer Talks Retirement, Djokovic's Form And Nadal's Threat To Grand Slam Record

Roger Federer

The Israeli only qualified for the contest as a lucky loser, while Edmund―appearing in his first match since the Australian Open―was widely backed as a dark horse to go deep into the tournament. Federer hit a running forehand passing shot to break at love and take the set 6-2.

After a ideal start to the season which sees him holding a 14-0 record, crowds all over the world may have seen everything before.

Djokovic took six months off after Wimbledon a year ago and returned at January's Australian Open, where he lost in the fourth round.

"I was grateful to be out on the court after surgery that quickly".

With his triumph on Monday, Federer, victor of the 2018 Australian Open (20th Grand Slam title) and the Rotterdam tournament, extends his winning streak this year to 14-0. "Nerves were there. I made so many unforced errors".

"We wondered post surgery what it was going to look like, how his elbow was going to react to the strain and stress, but it was his heart and head that didn't react the right way in this match".

Federer and 10th seed Djokovic both came into the tournament seeking to become the first six-time victor of the event.

"It's been a long time since I have been interrupted at night and have to come back the next day", Federer said. Yuki Bhambri of India pulled off a surprise when he toppled ninth-seeded Frenchman Lucas Pouille 6-4 6-4.

Federer will meet France's Jeremy Chardy in the round of 16, who earlier eliminated his compatriot Adrian Mannarino 7-5, 4-6 and 6-1. "Unfortunately today I am still not strong enough", he wrote.

Japan's Kei Nishikori withdrew through illness before playing his opening match of the tournament.

There were a few other upsets in Monday's action, including unseeded Croatian Borna Coric taking down the 13th seed, Spain's Roberto Bautista Agut, 6-1, 6-3 in 81 minutes.
