ROGER FEDERER believes the wave of injuries affecting his thirtysomething rivals is just a coincidence.

But the super Swiss showed his softer side when Sunsport was hurt while leaving his press conference.

Federer asked if your correspondent was OK after bashing his head on a low-lying camera.

Fine, thank you, Roger – we older blokes are made of sterner stuff, clearly.

But Federer himself believes a 36 year old like him should not be the favourite to win a Grand Slam.

Yet the reigning Australian Open finds himself in that position a year after stunning the world with his own spectacular comeback from injury.

The absence from Melbourne of injured Andy Murray and Kei Nishikori, and ongoing doubts about the fitness of world No 1 Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and Stan Wawrinka, leave Federer as the man to beat.
