Federer to rest after battle with flu

Roger Federer

TVCE – World third best, Roger Federer plans to take a small break before the Australian Open to recover from the effects of the flu.

Federer got sick just before the tournament in Brisbane, but still reached the final, where he fell to Milos Raonic in straight sets.

He acknowledged it affected him on court.

“You know, like one step too slow,” he said. “I definitely felt tired in my legs throughout the week, so then you feel that in defense.”

Federer now has a week before the Australian Open, and expects to be ready for the first major of the season.

 “I still have a cough,” he said. “As long as I keep on playing and doing all that stuff, it’s not going to go away faster, so I am going to rest up tomorrow.

“The good thing is the off-season was great. I have a base there, so I think within three, four days I should be back at 100 percent if things progress normally.”
