In a touching interview that will win him another few million fans, Roger Federer was unable to fight back tears as he spoke about former coach Peter Carter. "I feel good!", said Roger Federer.

Roger Federer cried and then apologized when he was asked a question about the death of one of his earliest coaches during a CNN interview this week.

Federer has previously paid tribute to Carter in 2017 when he had won the Australian Open title after defeating Rafael Nadal.

"I've been incredibly fortunate and we had the right people at the right time, the right coaches at the right time".

"Geez, never broke down like this", he said later.

Federer expressed his love for the Australian tennis calendar, as there is much that connects him to the country.

"I guess he didn't want me to be a wasted talent so I guess it was somewhat of a wake-up call for me when he passed away and I really started to train hard", Federer, temperamental prior to his grand slam winning days, continued to CNN Sport. When I was little he was one of the star players on the team.

"Sorry", said Federer. "Oh, man, I still miss him so much".

Sections of the filing were meant to be redacted, but the text underneath several blacked-out lines could be copied and viewed. The latest allegations further detail how Manafort's work on the campaign intersected with his past global work with Kilimnik.

Peter Carter's death was a tragic moment for Federer, but it was also the wake-up call for him that started to train very hard nearly like to honor the memory of his coach. After knowing about the death of Peter, Federer was seen running in the street near his hotel in Toronto screaming uncontrollably.

Over the course of his career Federer has racked up an impressive 20 grand slams, including a record eight Wimbledon titles, a joint-record six Australian Open titles, a record five consecutive US Open titles and one French Open title.

That moment sparked a late-career resurgence including back-to-back Australian Open titles.

Carter was a close friend of world No. 1 Simona Halep's former coach Darren Cahill, who was coaching Lleyton Hewitt at the same time.

Roger had a very important person in his life that unfortunately passed away tragically: Peter Carter. "The legends that I admire, the coaches that I've had in Tony Roche and Peter Carter - they've been incredibly inspirational and important to me in my life".

"In terms of who is going to win it, we know who the usual suspects are and I am part of that bunch".

"I like physical matches and if you come here to Australia you have be really fit", she said. Players around the entire ATP Tour and WTA Tour are gearing up for the action and getting in their final reps at tournaments leading up to it. Federer is a two-time defending champion at Melbourne Park. I've had another great year.
