Over the course of his career Federer has racked up an impressive 20 grand slams, including a record eight Wimbledon titles, a joint-record six Australian Open titles, a record five consecutive US Open titles and one French Open title.

Roger Federer cried and then apologized during an interview with CNN this week.

Federer not only attributes his unique method to coaching under the Adelaide-born Carter, but also his career and success; winning Wimbledon in 2003 before going on to achieve a record 20 Grand Slam titles. "Oh man, I still miss him so much".

Speaking at the Hopman Cup in Perth this week, Federer - who said he had been asked for his opinion on the change by tournament officials - admitted marathon final sets would be missed by some. I guess it was somewhat of a wake-up call for me when he passed away.

Recalling his relationship with Carter, who died in 2002, Federer said: "It's actually a really nice story... he came to play club tennis in my club back in Basel at Old Boys Tennis Club when I was little".

Federer told The Australian in 2012: "He wasn't my first coach, but he was my real coach".

"When it first happened, I believe it was in the Davis Cup in Basel when I played an unbelievable weekend against the Americans (in 2001) and of course when I won Wimbledon, the emotions were so, so strong".

Liverpool team-mate Sadio Mane and Arsenal's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang also made the three-man shortlist for the award. The Super Falcons won the first award of the night; as they were voted as the Best National Women Team for the Year.

"When they talk about my effortless style and technique, I guess".

Federer has previously paid tribute to Carter in 2017 when he had won the Australian Open title after defeating Rafael Nadal. However, as per Federer's words, tennis is full of people with a lot of talent, the question mark is if they can make something meaningful out of it. I feel good. I've been training really well. "I mean, sure you could argue I made those decisions, but I was also lucky along the way", he said.

Federer regularly pays for Carter's parents to travel from Adelaide to Melbourne to sit in his players box at the Australian Open each year - and he's hopeful of putting on a show in 2019 as he seeks to defend his title. I've had another great season this year, still happy playing and I won the last two Australian Open editions so I definitely should be going in there with confidence.

Till previous year, the Australian Open had a traditional full set in all of its set but from this edition, the decisive set will have a tie-break.

"I love playing Australia, love playing in Melbourne".

Federer expressed his love for the Australian tennis calendar, as there is much that connects him to the country.
