Tired from three months of winning, Roger Federer hit one last shot Sunday, whacking a celebratory forehand into the stands to punctuate his victory over Rafael Nadal in the Miami Open final.

"The French Open to some extent, we will see what happens, no pressure there really".

"I got a few important ones", Federer said. Because when I am healthy and feeling good, I can produce tennis like this, when I am not feeling this good there is no chance I will be in the finals competing with Rafa. Despite that he can reach the number one position quite easily given his passion and his will to win and also given the fact that two of his major modern day contemporaries Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray haven't had really great seasons so far. I need a rest. That ties for the worst by any player at any tournament in the open era. "It's been a fabulous couple of weeks", said Federer after his victory before announcing he would take a almost two month break before the French Open in late May.

"We have had some great battles over the years and in 2005 when I beat you very luckily here in the final, I also probably told you, "You are going to win this tournament" and I truly believe you are going to still win this tournament". Elena Vesnina won Indian Wells and Johanna Konta won Key Biscayne, and for both players, it was the biggest title of her career.

Federer is enjoying an outstanding start to the season, and since returning from a 6-month lay-off, he has won the Australian Open and the Indian Wells.

Meanwhile, Federer is slated to miss the clay-court season and participate only at Roland Garros before the Wimbledon.

Even so, Federer's resurgence is remarkable.

"That is what it is going to look like, I need rest, my body needs healing, I need time as well to prepare, you will probably see me at the French again". "Every three years I am in this position, but always with the smaller trophy".

"Part of the situation was that my knee was really unusual on the clay a year ago, so maybe being away from the clay as much as possible is a good thing as well, even though I don't think it was because of the clay as such", he said. It's been a fabulous couple of weeks here in Miami, Indian Wells was attractive as well. He's the first three-time champion this year on the men's tour - and ready for a break. "It was totally key", Federer said.
