At the ATP World Tour Finals Roger Federer provided some of the best quotes of the tournament. The 17-time slam winner admitted to being rattled on the court and also made a few sarcastic remarks after losing in the semi-finals against Rafael Nadal. However, the 32-year-old wasn't exactly drained of confidence and stated that matches against top players still rested primarily with his own racquet. The message was a simple one: 'I can beat anyone when I'm at my best.'

Novak Djokovic has since offered a response of sorts. According to TennisWorld, the World No. 2 said, "Federer is probably capable of winning a Grand Slam tournament next year, but many will show up with the intention to win it. So, it does not depend solely on him but also on other players."

Federer produced a season that almost everybody would be proud of in 2013. He won ATP Halle, had a few close run ins with Rafael Nadal and Djokovic, and put together a 45-17 match record. However, there was no denying that this was a disappointment following a decade of outstanding achievements and several years of unquestionable dominance.

Federer fans will have taken some positives from a strong finish to the season though. Djokovic went unbeaten after the US Open, yet Federer faced him twice since the final slam of the year and pushed him to three sets on each occasion. There's still a chance that Federer will return to the fore during the 2014 slams. However, time appears to be running out for the Swiss legend.
