FedExpress targets Garnd Slam glory
Former world number one Roger Federer says he is ready to once again challenge the sport's best after a month off.
The Swiss star has been one of the dominant forces in the men's game in the last decade but his powers appeared to be waning when he fell behind the likes of Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal. However, in the last six months or so he looks to have rediscovered some of the old form that took him to 16 Grand Slam titles and saw him top the rankings for a combined total of 286 weeks. After taking the last few weeks off to recharge his batteries, the 30-year-old is excited to get back on the court at the Madrid Masters and believes he still has the game to win another Major. "I am excited to be back after a long off-season, but I needed it after playing so, so much," said Federer. "I have put myself in a good position if I do win a Grand Slam for the world number one. "I know how hard it is to win (a Major championship). But it is a dream for me to achieve it this year. I will chase it as hard as possible."
