Carter died in a auto accident while on honeymoon in South Africa before Federer had won his first major nearly 17 years ago.

Roger Federer has shown his softer side in an emotional interview after he struggled to hold back tears while talking about his late, former coach.

Federer not only attributes his unique method to coaching under the Adelaide-born Carter, but also his career and success; winning Wimbledon in 2003 before going on to achieve a record 20 Grand Slam titles.

"The beginning of past year started so well, so I'm hopeful that it can happen again", Federer said.

"I guess it was somewhat of a wake-up call for me when he passed away, and I really started to train hard".

Federer added: "Peter was really a really important person in my life because I think if I can say thank you for my technique today, it's to Peter". With that being said, there's a deep field of players that could unseat the two would-be record breakers for Australian Open titles.

Djokovic won his third US Open in September to put him on 14 Grand Slams - three behind Nadal and six behind Federer.

Speaking to CNN, Federer broke down in tears remembering the Australian coach who had such an impact on his life and career.

When Federer learnt of his coach's death, he ran through the streets "bawling and hysterical". I was able to have coaching lessons with him. I fell in love with tennis after the epic 2008 Wimbledon final between Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal. I think what I would like to say is that I've been incredibly fortunate to have the right people at the right time, the right coaches.

"When they talk about my effortless style and technique, I guess".

Star players Roger Federer and Angelique Kerber have cautiously welcomed new tie-break rules for the deciding set at the Australian Open.

Federer is the two-time defending champion in Melbourne, and has looked in top form heading into the event, defeating World No 4 Alexander Zverev on the way to a second Hopman Cup title.

Federer regularly pays for Carter's parents to watch his matches at the Australian Open, flying them from Adelaide to Melbourne.

"Sure you could argue I made those decisions, but I also got lucky along the way".

"Am I confident, I don't know", he said.

Federer expressed his love for the Australian tennis calendar, as there is much that connects him to the country. I feel good. I've been training really well. I've had another great season this year, still happy playing and I won the last two Australian Open editions so I definitely should be going in there with confidence.
