Federer is the top seed at this week's Brisbane International, and remains in the draw thanks to a second round victory over Jarkko Nieminen. In a press conference at the tournament on Tuesday, the Swiss told reporters that he expects Nadal and Djokovic to lead the way in the ATP in 2014.

"I think Rafa and Novak are going to be the ones who are going to be the ones to beat this season, particularly in the beginning," said Federer. “Then as we move forward, you have to see if they stay injury-free and keep on winning. I kind of expect them to go deep in most of the tournaments they'll enter, of course.”


Federer also commented on the situation of Andy Murray, who was beaten in round two of the Qatar ExxonMobil Open by Florian Mayer on Wednesday. The 17-time slam winner believes that the best-of-five battles at the upcoming Australian Open could provide Murray with a massive test following his recent return from injury.

"I think Murray, we hope he's going to come back strong," said Federer. “It's nice that he already played a few matches this year now, even though it was an exhibition match. It's a big step forward for him in his mind. I'm eager to see him again. It's been since probably the U.S. Open I haven't seen him, so I'm hopeful for him that it's going to be fine for the Australian Open, which is going to be a huge test for him now because it's best-of-five-set matches and so forth."
