Even he had doubts over his future but his resurgence has delighted his fans: “Unbelievable! What he has been achieving this year is unreal taking six months off. We were waiting for his 8th title since I don’t know how long. And it’s finally there! It’s amazing!”said one woman clearly happy at the outcome. “It’s been amazing. You know last two years we’ve seen him almost achieving greatness. And now he’s got to that level. He’s come back,“said another Federer fan.
