Swiss tennis player Roger Federer told about his attitude to Russian Karen Khachanov.
“It seems to me that the victory at Masters in Paris was very important for Karen. To defeat such a strong player as Djokovic in the final is something special. This success certainly gave Khachanov confidence that would help him in the coming years. Now he understands that he can defeat such rivals right now. Karen plays great on the pitch. He has a good backhand. True, Khachanov runs too fast under the forehand, but he is working on it. Of course, now they expect a lot from him.
The start of the season was unsuccessful for Karen, but I have no doubt that he will soon find his game again. I like to watch his actions. We met in Galle in 2017. That fight could be delayed by three sets. Khachanov tried to attack and beat me in a tiebreaker. I treat him with respect, “- Tennis World quotes Federer.
