Roger Federer’s stunning consistency over the years – especially from last season – has taken one and all by surprise.

And, Rod Laver is no different. The legendary Australian tennis player heaped praise on the Swiss maestro, insisting that the latter is playing as well as he did during his younger days.

“Roger, at 36, continues to play as well as when he was 21. The racket has helped him, the speed and control he has over the ball is still at its best,” Laver was quoted as saying by puntodebreak.

Ever since making a full-fledged comeback in 2017, Federer possess a sublime 60-6 record that consists of seven titles including two Grand Slam titles – the Australian Open and Wimbledon.

The 19-time Major winner, who is currently in Perth for the Hopman Cup, will be the outright favourite to defend his crown at the Australian Open, which begins January 15.
