Roger Federer 'always hungry for success'

Roger Federer 'always hungry for success'

Tennis fans with Wimbledon tickets who have the chance to see Roger Federer in action over the coming week will see a player who is hungry for success.

Despite having already lifted the men's singles trophy six times at SW19, the Swiss star revealed that he is always focusing on the next challenge and the next opportunity for a title, according to the tournament's official website.

Federer's will to win at Wimbledon 2011 could be boosted by the fact that he lost his crown to Rafael Nadal last year and has not won a Grand Slam event since the Australian Open at the beginning of 2010.

"I always have been hungry - the day after my victory, the day after my final losses, I've been hungry," he said.

"It doesn't come in phases. I'm always hungry. And that's a good thing."

Federer will play Mikhail Youzhny today (June 27th) on a day of exciting activity at Wimbledon that will also see the likes of Andy Murray, Novak Djokovic, Serena Williams and Victoria Azarenka in action.
