Roger Federer recently answered questions from tennis fans in a video chat and said he would choose more than 2006 because 2017 was the year of his biggest professional victories because he was “barely lost” and then a “great move”. Asked who her favorite WTA player was, the great Swiss said she would be Belinda Bencic because she was her “best friend” on the women’s tour as well as her best partner. She also added the names of Serena Williams and Naomi Osaka to the list. The ATP Tour has tweeted a short film of a conversation between Federer and his fans.
Federer 2006 or Federer 2017?

During the conversation, Federer was asked which year to choose: Federer in 2006 or Federer 2020.
“Good question. I would probably think of 2006. I was just missing out on some of my best years. Okay. I also had a wonderful year in 2017. I would pick 2006 from 2017 to 2017,” said the professional tennis player from Basel.
After watching the clip, a lot of people commented.

One user said Federer was strong in 2006, but in 2017 he was stunned against Rafael Nadal “especially for the new approach,” as he equaled 20 Federer Grand Slam victories.
2006 was a very strong year, but 2017 was amazing especially for the new vision against Rafa … incredible

Watch the detailed video of the interview here:
Federer was asked who would choose the best WTA player. The 20-time Grand Slam champion didn’t need much time to name compatriot Belinda Bencic.
“Belinda, of course,” he said. “He’s my best friend on the women’s tour. After playing all the Hopman Cup with him, he’s been my best partner. Hopefully we can help each other again at the Olympics.”
Federer then added Ashleigh Barty and Naomi Osaka to the roster and said they were “extraordinary players.” And in the end, they said, “We’re not going to forget about Serena, of course. The queen is so very good there.”
