Roger Federer insists he has still had a ‘positive’ season despite US Open exit

Roger Federer insists he’s still had a”positive” season despite being unable to add to his Grand Slam tally.
The 20-time major winner had appeared destined to get a box-office final against Rafael Nadal in what could have been the great rivals’ first meeting in the united states Open but the Swiss legend suffered a shock defeat at the hands of Grigor Dimitrov from the quarter-finals in Flushing Meadows.
Dimitrov hadn’t beaten Federer in some of their previous seven matches, and had obtained just two sets him off. Nevertheless, the Bulgarian secured the win of his career against the 38-year-old in five sets on Tuesday under the Arthur Ashe lights.
New from a weight loss loss in the All-England Tennis Club, the ending to the run in New York of Federer raised questions if the 38-year-old could send on a 21st Grand Slam title.
“I do not have the crystal . Do you?” After a reporter asked if he expected to win a second Grand Slam title at his era, Said the seed.
“We know. I am hoping naturally. I believe it has been a season. Disappointing today, but I will get up, I’ll be all perfect.”
Federer also laid out an aggressive schedule of contests during the next couple of months.
“Laver Cup, Shanghai, Basel, possibly Paris, London. That is the schedule for now. I really don’t know if the staff have other thoughts or not,” said Federer. “I’m delighted to receive a small break now, go back to clinic, reassess and strike from there.”
In four months, he’ll renew his effort to add at the Australian Open, in which he collected his title in 2018 to his Grand Slam coffers.
“(I’ve ) got to accept the losses. They are a part of the game,” additional Federer. “Looking forward to family time and all of that stuff, so life is all right.”
