Federer, who won the Australian Open last month, is in Rotterdam this week as he attempts to become the oldest world No 1 in men’s history.

The Swiss star is 155 ranking points behind Rafael Nadal, who is not in action this week as he recovers from injury, and knows that if he reaches the semi-final he will surpass his great rival in the rankings.

Federer will begin his campaign on Wednesday night against Belgian world No 116 Ruben Bemelmans.

Goffin could meet Federer in Sunday’s final should the pair safely get through their halves of the draw.

But prior to his first match against Benoit Paire, Goffin was asked to put into words what Federer is achieving at the age of 36.

Goffin told Tennis TV: “It’s unbelievable. He is still winning, even more than before.

“I’m not surprised about his tennis because he has everything in his racket since the beginning of his career. 

“But I am surprised how physically he can maintain that level.

“How he can play tournament after tournament and stay the same level physically so he is really strong.

“He knows himself really well so knows when he has to rest, when he has to play, when he’s 100 per cent fit.

“So he is really impressive.”
