Focused Federer eyes more trophies

Roger Federer insists he is confident about winning more tournaments next year despite being beaten by Novak Djokovic in the ATP World Tour Finals.

The Serb, who recently returned to the top of the world rankings, beat Federer 7-6 7-5 to add the season-ending title to his Australian Open victory in January after an epic two hours and 14 minutes battle.

I think it's been a fantastic season to be part of.

It is the second time Djokovic has won the ATP finale, following his triumph in Shanghai four years ago, while Federer, who beat Andy Murray in the semi-finals, has won the tournament on six occasions.

The 31-year-old Federer was in a bullish mood after his defeat though, saying: "I reflect in a nice way. I think it's been a fantastic season to be part of.

"I'm very pleased that I was able to pick up my performance at the end of the season, like I played this week. So obviously that gives me confidence for next year.

"I haven't really set clear goals yet for next year. I first have to make sure I create my schedule so it makes sense. I need to practice a whole lot more next year because, this year, I hardly had an opportunity to do so. I have some catching up to do in that standpoint."

Four different men have won Grand Slams this year, with Djokovic clinching the Australian Open title, Rafael Nadal the French Open, Federer triumphing at Wimbledon and Murray breaking his duck by beating Djokovic in the US Open final. The Scot also picked up the gold medal at the London Olympics.

Murray is 5/2 to win the 2013 Australian Open title, while Djokovic can be backed at 1/1, Federer at 9/2 and Nadal at 500/1.
