Federer "returns home" to bid for seventh title http://www.wimbledon.com/en_GB/news/articles/2011-06-18/201106181308406564528.html Federer rates the chances of the top 4 on grass -- "Maybe [a few years ago] Rafa was still looking a little bit for how good he was on grass. We all knew he was good on clay - excellent on clay really - very good on hard courts, and grass you just never really get a chance to really prove yourself. I think as time went by, he showed how good he was; won a couple times here in the meantime. And Murray's game is very natural for this surface." As for the fourth member of the quartet at the top of the tennis world right now, Federer couldn't resist another dig at Djokovic. "I think Djokovic has always been great, but nothing extraordinary yet. But with the run he's on, obviously there's a lot of possibilities for him as well here," he said. And so the mind games have begun. Federer finds himself in the same half of the draw as the Serb, and if all goes to plan they would clash in the semi-final for the fourth straight time at a major. "I didn't necessarily need to prove my point in Paris for my mind or for my confidence. I know I can beat Novak on any surface. I've done that in the past. Just because he's on a great winning streak doesn't mean he's unbeatable," he said. "Here at Wimbledon anyway I'm even more confident. I think I'm a better player than in Paris, so I expect myself to do really well here, even better" "The first time I hit here on Monday, very easily, like right away after 10 minutes, it feels so natural for me to play on grass. And unfortunately for those who will come up against him at this year's Championships, Federer is dreaming big in 2011. When asked about the images he sees of Wimbledon when he closes his eyes, this was the response: "For me it's the moment when I lift the Wimbledon trophy really… that's the moment I see and I feel the strongest," he explained. "All the hard work during the year and then the preparation and just staying focused and strong till the very end, to be able to lift up the trophy is a wonderful feeling. That's the picture I see." In just two weeks, it's a picture the rest of the tennis world could be seeing for a seventh time. ______________ Good to see, Federer confident, and sending out a message to his rivals. Who's betting on Fed to win the tournament?
