In an interview published on, Rodger Federer's fitness coach Pierre Paganini has declared Federer fully fit. After a up and down 2013 season for the former number one Paganini believes that Federer can again become a force in 2014 on the tour. He is quoted as saying:-
Right now – touch wood – it looks very good. When we discuss the training with each other or with (Federer coach) Seve (Luthi), we are happy,” “Federer again shows things on the court and in the gym, where we say: ‘Wow, the sparks are back.’

Pagnini navigates his time around Swiss number two Stanislas Wawrinka as well as Federer. He said he was a little surprised about Wawrinka's very successful 2013 season which included making four ATP finals (winning one) and his shock semi final at the US Open. He also called Wawrinka's physical development beautiful and said that this is what happens when you don't give up despite setbacks.

Federer begins his season at the 2014 Brisbane International whilst Wawrinka takes part in next weeks mubadala world tennis championship exhibition.
