The Roland Garros 2011 has begun and Roger Federer is looking to regain his lost glory. He wants to become the world number 1 in the world of tennis for the second time. The venue of the competition is in Paris and Federer arrived earlier there to practice. Federer is currently the world number 3, behind Nadal and Djokovic, and he will not just settle there. He wants to move up that's why he went to Paris earlier to be more familiar in the claycourts.
Roger Federer made an early exit in Rome Open 2011 and that's his problem so far. This year he has not advanced to the final stages of any competitions that he has joined. He looks to end that trend in the Roland Garros 2011. He is the only 16-time Grand Slam winner in all of the participants. He should use his veteran smarts against his opponents.
“There is nothing to panic about. (The early defeat in Rome) will not affect my preparation and work for the French Open. I will be fine. It’s still important for me to get back to being No.1. I mentioned after Wimbledon it was a goal of mine. It’s still very possible. I think I can do it if I win one of those grand slams.”
In 2009, Roger Federer was the French Open champion. That's quite a long time considering that in the world of tennis time flies so fast and the world rankings is very dynamic. One tournament can change one's fate. If Federer will be able to succeed in the quarterfinals of the 2011 Roland Garros, his world ranking will improve.
Federer will see his rivals, Djokovic and Nadal in the Roland Garros 2011. He could move in the 2nd spot in the world rankings if he will win the 2011 Roland Garros trophy.
