Roger Federer savors 'extra special' Australian Open win

It was the 35-year-old Federer's first major title since Wimbledon in 2012, his first in Australia since 2010, and it reversed the status quo against his nemesis, Nadal.

"She's been there when I had no titles and she's still here 89 titles later", said Federer. "This one means a lot to me because he's caused me problems over the years". He said it was taken into consideration that Nadal played a significant number of matches after a four-month layoff because of a wrist injury.

ESPN's audience for both the Women's and Men's Championships at the Australian Open - where all-time legends were on both sides of the net - was the largest since each event moved to a 3 a.m. ET time slot from prime time (2005 for the men, 2009 for the women).

British economy grows 0.6% in final quarter of 2016
A higher trade deficit subtracts from economic growth because it means more production is being supplied from overseas . It is also much lower than the growth rate trend before the downturn, which averaged 2.9% a year over 10 years.

"If I do get injured, you know, maybe if I miss next year, who knows what happens". He is now reaping rich dividends, winning his first Grand Slam title in five years.

"I said that also before the finals: if I were to win against Rafa, it would be super-special and very sweet because I haven't beaten him in a Grand Slam final for a long, long time now". I don't know how much I slept if I even did sleep.

"I saw how they were celebrating, and it really made me emotional when I heard that in Switzerland people were following me and people were being generally really happy for me that I won a slam again".

Jose Mourinho: Man Utd not EFL Cup final favourites
When told Mourinho's views on the penalty, Silva laughed and said: "I understand what Mourinho tried to say". I can not give to the same player chance after chance after chance and not consider the effort of the others.

Federer added: "Look, I've had a tough year last year". Shortly after coming home from celebrating, kids woke me up again and the boys put toys in the trophy and the girls cleaned it'. "I'm still on the high". "On so many levels I just felt like a lot of people were happy and that's nearly more important than me being happy".

"Honestly I believed I could do it, the question was how's Novak (Djokovic) going to play, how's Andy (Murray) going to play, Rafa and everybody".

Federer said he had never entertained thoughts that he could win his comeback tournament, figuring he could reach the quarterfinals and set a positive tone for the rest of the season. After that he'd play Indian Wells and Miami before a European clay court schedule he hadn't yet fully planned. The U.S. Open, actually, I also think I have a good chance to do well there, but let's enjoy this one first'. "That was a big surprise to me, that my level was consistent".
