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).

"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".

Trump, Hannity defend waterboarding: What if David Muir's kids were kidnapped?
Muir told him he was wrong - not because the report changed but because it never showed what Trump falsely claims it showed. In the interview , recorded Wednesday morning, Muir asked Trump about reports he would lift a ban on the practice.

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".
