Cibulkova missed four months of competition a year ago to undergo Achilles tendon surgery.

Ace tennis player and record grand slam victor Roger Federer has expressed that he would be “OK” even if he couldn’t manage to add to his 17 major titles in the upcoming season.

The coach signing was a concern for Djokovic.

“Whether it’s going to work or not, that’s something to see for all of us, but I wish them all the best”.

Roger Federer is preparing for another big year in tennis, first stop the Brisbane International.

The French Open has so far proved elusive for the 10-time Grand Slam champion as Djokovic has yet to claim the title in Paris despite three appearances in the final.

If Australian tennis player Sam Groth is to be believed, Federer has garnered so much respect that whenever he walks into a room, everything falls silent.

“It has been a long gap, but I really enjoyed it. I thought it was very traditional and I always welcome such performances. So it was a great year last year and I hope I can do it again”.

“I’ve come so close, I’ve played very well, but I don’t feel any frustration because of it”, Federer said.

“[Ljubicic] knows my game, he knows the game of all Roger’s opponents, and I think that’s one of the reasons why Roger has hired him”.

However, Federer says he’s feeling good heading into 2016 after winning six titles including Brisbane previous year and reaching the final of both Wimbledon and the US Open.

The 23-year-old won the Canberra Challenger in November and then a smaller Futures event in Wollongong, which is where he skimped to keep his accommodation bill for the week to just $85.

Given his performance, last season there has been speculation that Djokovic could become the first player since Rod Laver in 1969 to win all four Grand Slams in a single season.
