Roger Federer says a caravanning holiday around the Swiss countryside has left him feeling the best he has “in years” before the US Open.

Federer, 38, is going for a record sixth Open era men’s singles title in New York.

The 20-time Grand Slam champion, who last won at Flushing Meadows in 2008, says the trip helped him process his Wimbledon defeat by Novak Djokovic.

“Overall, if I look back, I’m very happy,” Federer said.

“The way I played at Wimbledon is going to give me some extra confidence.

“This is probably the best I've felt in years coming into the US Open which is encouraging.”

Federer beat long-time rival Rafael Nadal in a memorable semi-final at the All England Club, then lost to top seed Djokovic in a historic fifth-set tie-break after holding two match points.

“I struggled a little bit the first couple days. At the same time I was caravanning with my kids. I didn’t have that much time thinking about all the missed opportunities,” Federer, who lost to Australian John Millman in the US Open last 16 last year, said at Flushing Meadows on Friday. (BBC)
