"I think if I can say thank you for my technique today, it's to Peter".

Roger Federer, who has started his 2019 season in flawless fashion, had an emotional interview with CNN, as he spoke about the man who made him who is.

Federer said he is confident to defend his title for the upcoming 2019 Australian Open, which begins January 14.

When asked what Carter would think about his record grand slam haul, Federer teared up."Sorry", said Federer.

Speaking to CNN, Federer broke down in tears remembering the Australian coach who had such an impact on his life and career.

"So, it was somewhat of a wake-up call for me when he passed away, and I really started to train hard".

Star players Roger Federer and Angelique Kerber have cautiously welcomed new tie-break rules for the deciding set at the Australian Open.

"I am okay with any format really", he said.

But among thousands of rowdy Federer supporters, two will stand out - Carter's parents Bob and Diana, who Roger flies to Melbourne from Adelaide each year to watch him compete in their son's memory. "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".

Carter died at 37 in 2002 in a auto accident while honeymooning in South Africa-just a week before Federer's 21st birthday, and a year before Federer won his first grand slam.

Darren Cahill (Simona Halep's coach) was a friend of Carter and he went on to mentor Lleyton Hewitt, while Carter took charge of Roger Federer.

"I've been incredibly fortunate and we had the right people at the right time, the right coaches at the right time". After knowing about the death of Peter, Federer was seen running in the street near his hotel in Toronto screaming uncontrollably.

"Geez, never broke down like this", he said later. "Sure you could argue I made those decisions, but I had luck along the way".

Even though Federer has spent only two weeks at home since August, the 37-year-old said being on tour now in the "back end", of his career was his most enjoyable period.

"Am I confident? I don't know".

While a third said: "One of many reasons why I love this guy, those emotions make him so very special to show them so openly you can't help but cry with him".

Till previous year, the Australian Open had a traditional full set in all of its set but from this edition, the decisive set will have a tie-break.

Murray's hip surgery meant he played just six events in 2018, and Nadal's truncated 2018 campaign was bookended by injuries that forced to him to retire in both the Australian and US Opens.

"There's so much that connects me to that country".
