Federer Eyes US Open Glory

Roger Federer is hoping for US Open glory. He beat Britain?s Andy Murray to win the 2012 Wimbledon title, regained his world number one ranking and comes into the final grand slam of the year in ominous form. ?I?m just happy how I?m playing,? said Federer. ?I already reached my goal for the year becoming world number one and getting Wimbledon again and getting a medal for Switzerland. It?s been incredible.?

Murray, who lost to Federer in the Wimbledon final but beat the Swiss weeks later at the same venue to win gold at the London Olympics, was also in action yesterday against Russian Alex Bogomolov Jr. Despite his golden summer, Murray said he was not about to slack off.

?I needed to make sure that afterwards I worked hard. Whether you?re confident or not confident, providing you work hard and you do all the right things in training, then you?ll get a good result. That was the most important thing, to make sure I kept my feet on the ground and keep working hard and try to improve. Am I more confident? You never know what?s going to happen when you get out there on the court. I prepared well. I trained hard the last five, six days, so I?m ready to go.?
