Tennis: Federer insists he can still win a Slam

BRISBANE (AFP) - Swiss tennis great Roger Federer insisted on Monday that he was still capable of winning a Grand Slam singles crown despite a relatively poor season which saw him slip to world No.6.

The 32-year-old won only one title in an injury-hit 2013, leading many fans to wonder whether he would add to his record tally of 17 Slams.

However, the former world No.1 said he still had the ability to win one of the big four and identified Wimbledon as his best chance.

"Let's say I play my best, probably I always feel that Wimbledon (which he won seven times) is going to be my best chance," he said when asked which of the four Slams he thought he could win in 2014.
