Federer warns Djokovic

ROGER Federer has warned Novak Djokovic he will find it hard to repeat his incredible 2015 campaign.

Federer was Djokovic’s last victim of the year as the Serb romped to a 6-3, 6-4 victory in the final of the ATP Tour Finals on Sunday.

It was 28-year-old Djokovic’s 11th title of a golden year that saw the world number one win 82 of his 88 matches, reach all four Grand Slam finals and win Wimbledon, the Australian Open and the US Open.

But 17-time Grand Slam champion Federer knows just how difficult it will be for Djokovic to emulate his triumphs in 2016.

“It’s hard to play at this pace all the time.

You are talking about narrow margins, a break point here and there can change the whole outcome,” Federer said.

“It’s going to be hard for him to have a bad year, but you can’t just repeat a year like this. — AFP
