Roger Federer hopes to build on a strong year and is eager to add to his 17 grand slam titles in 2016.
The Swiss star last tasted grand slam success at Wimbledon in 2012 and was beaten by world number one Novak Djokovic in two major deciders this year.
Federer, 34, won six titles in 2015 and – while that left him pleased – he hopes to add to his record tally at majors.
“Novak’s had a great year. He’s stopped me on numerous occasions last year in finals,” he said.
“But I was able to be really competitive against him. I beat him three times and beat all the others. So it’s been a really good year for me.
“Winning six titles was great and I hope I can build on that and play an equally good season next year. Just maybe with a slam more.”
Federer is playing at the International Premier Tennis League, where his UAE Royals sit third in the standings.
