Roger Federer is keen to relax for a few days prior to Sunday's start of the French Open after losing in straight sets to Novak Djokovic at the Rome Masters.
"I'm very excited but very tired," said winner of an ATP-leading four titles this season, including Madrid only days ago. "I've been living and breathing tennis every day. I'm looking forward to some days off and getting ready for Paris.
"I'm happy in some ways that the event is over for me."
Federer is ready to return to his version of normal family life. "We've got two kids running, they're growing up. We have a lot on our plate. This is the best time of my life and I wouldn't change it for anything.
"But I like to put the kids to bed and that's impossible with the schedule I've had the last two weeks. Don't feel bad for me, I'm OK with it all. I've probably had night sessions for the last 10-11 nights, it catches up with you, but at least you can sleep in."
