The tear-jerking interview, which has been shared across social media has gained a lot of attention from Federer's fans, who praised to talented player for his respect for his former coach. The Australian Open will have a fifth set tie-breaker at 6-6; the Wimbledon will have a fifth set tie-breaker at 12-12; the French Open will have no tie-breaker while the US Open will have a traditional fifth set tie-breaker.
"I've been incredibly fortunate to have the right people at the right time, the right coaches at the right time".
Learning of Carter's death whilst playing at the 2002 Canadian Masters in Toronto, Federer was reputedly said to be "never so upset in his life".
"And when you start thinking of your family or your friends, you go back in the gym, you go back into the practice courts where there was nobody watching, and all of the sudden you realise we've put in so much work and it all paid off".
Federer will be competing in the Australian Open this year as the world no. 3 and the defending champion in a bid to win his 21st Grand Slam title and a record 7th Australian Open title as well.
But a year before Federer won his first grand slam at Wimbeldon in 2003, Carter died in a auto accident while on his honeymoon in South Africa.
"(Pete) Sampras once upon a time said, "If you win a Slam, it's a good season", said Federer, now ranked three, who skipped Roland Garros and had disappointing exits at Wimbledon and the US Open.
"I guess he didn't want me to be a wasted talent so I guess it was somewhat of a wake-up call for me when he passed away and I really started to train hard". "Sure you could argue I made those decisions, but I had luck along the way".
Federer said he is confident to defend his title for the upcoming 2019 Australian Open, which begins January 14. It was all so different a year ago in Melbourne where a sorry last-16 exit at the hands of South Korea's Chung Hyeon was followed by elbow surgery and a string of early tournament exits.
That moment sparked a late-career resurgence including back-to-back Australian Open titles. According to The Australian, Federer "left his hotel and ran through the streets, bawling and hysterical" upon hearing the tragic news.
"Am i confident? I dont know..."
The world number two also endured a disappointing Australian Open exit previous year, forced to retire in pain from his quarter-final with Marin Cilic.
"I like physical matches and if you come here to Australia you have be really fit", she said.
"There's so much that connects me to that country".
