Not played the best tennis of my life. But as I played had to be done with intelligence, and punchy, the Swiss said Monday. It was something different for me because I won the whole world rolling.

The day after his victory over the Swede Robin Soderling 6-1, 7-6 (1), 6-4, that gave him his 14th title and the only big hitherto had been elusive, Federer spoke to the press a hotel in central Paris.

I am exhausted, physically and mentally, but very happy and excited, said the tennis player, showing his trophy.

He added that it has no interest in returning to be the world number one, that place of the displaced by the Spanish Rafael Nadal in August. His priority is to continue winning Grand Slam tournaments and cementing its position as one of the major sports, if not the largest.

With her victory at Roland Garros was tied with American Pete Sampras at the top of the list of players who have won more major titles, both with 14. His first chance to reach the 15th will be at Wimbledon, which begins on June 22.

Federer won five titles in a row in the lawn of Wimbledon, Nadal cut until defeated in a run that memorable final last year.

The Swiss, of 27 years, feels very confident for the next tournament.

Actually, I think I'm the favorite, with all the success I've had there, he said.

Nadal was interrupted a streak of 31 victories in a row at Roland Garros lose Soderling in the fourth round. The Spanish just withdraw from the Queens Club tournament, preparations for Wimbledon because of knee problems.

I hope you can play at Wimbledon, Federer said.

It seems that his injury is not as serious. I wish him well and hope it is not certain that he will not play at Wimbledon. I think this is pure speculation, "said Federer. Not taking a knee here in Paris. Seemed to be okay. I played with him many times that I realize when they are not bad.

Federer believes that you can still improve his game, especially on grass and hard surfaces, which have more opportunities to make my shots.

Five times and won the Open and Wimbledon United States and three in Australia. At Roland Garros title had been close, but lost all three previous editions to Nadal in the final. Now does not preclude more wins in the future of brick dust.

I'm going to Paris to enjoy much more now, because I got that big weight lifted, he said.
