Roger Federer Breaks Down in Tears Ahead of Australian Open 2019

Roger Federer Breaks Down in Tears Ahead of Australian Open 2019

Speaking to CNN at a training camp in Dubai last month, Federer broke down in tears discussing his former mentor Peter Carter, whose death in 2002 rocked his world.

"I love the Botanical Gardens and I love nature and I love to spend time daily there if I can", Djokovic said at a sponsor's event in Melbourne on Wednesday.

The 20-time Grand Slam victor was speaking to CNN about the Australian coach, Peter Carter, who was so influential in his formative years.

"Sorry. Oh, man, I still miss him so much". We have often seen him break down after winning a Grand Slam.

When asked if there was anything further he'd like to say about Carter in view of his life now, he replied: "I think, what I'd like to say is that, I've been incredibly fortunate in having had the right people at the right time; the right coaches at the right time".

'He didn't want me to be a wasted talent.

Turning 37 on August 8 - one day before what would have been Carter's 53rd birthday - Federer remains close to Carter's family and his parents usually occupy his player's box in Melbourne for the Australian Open.

Browns Head Coaching Job Down to Kitchens and Stefanski
Back when he was on Bruce Arians' staff in Arizona in 2013, he felt two pops in his chest , his vision blurred, and he went numb. Additionally, Kitchens and the Browns offense ranked 11th in points per game in the final three weeks as well.

Federer will be competing in the Australian Open this year as the world no. 3 and the defending champion in a bid to win his 21st Grand Slam title and a record 7th Australian Open title as well.

Carter coached Federer as a youngster but died in a vehicle crash in 2002 - meaning he never saw Federer win a Grand Slam title.

"It's hard to just say 'Yeah, no big deal.' It is a big deal for me because I really don't take it for granted, this career".

Forget champagne and victory parties, Novak Djokovic has a different celebration in mind should he win his seventh Australian Open title: climb a tree.

"I mean, sure you could argue I made those decisions, but er, I also got lucky along the way".

And Cilic, who pushed Federer all the way in the final a year ago, heads into the tournament after pulling out of a warm-up event in India last week with an injured knee.

That moment sparked a late-career resurgence including back-to-back Australian Open titles.

And the Australian tennis calendar, the country's athletes, and the sporting culture as a whole continue to leave an indelible mark in Federer's character.

"I like physical matches and if you come here to Australia you have be really fit", she said.

"Am i confident? I dont know..."

He has remained high atop the men's singles rankings throughout the past two years and he is one of OUR FAVORITES at the upcoming Australian Open.

"I have a friend there, a Brazilian fig tree, that I like to climb and I like to connect with so that's probably my favourite thing to do".

"Melbourne will be the same I think".
