Roger Federer and Mats Wilander

Eurosport's expert analyst Mats Wilander has a treat in store for tennis fans this week: an exclusive, one-on-one interview with living legend Roger Federer.

Mats caught up with the Swiss maestro in Miami, and asked him about his incredible season so far - and how he feels at having defied his critics by showing that he is still capable of playing his very best tennis despite now being 32.

"I feel like people are really happy for me," said the great man, talking about the fabulous reception he has received from fans.

While in Florida Mats also spent some time at the legendary Nick Bolletieri academy, the tennis hothouse that has churned out superstars such as Andre Agassi and Maria Sharapova.

He also caught up with one of the academy alumni, Daniela Hantuchova, to ask her about life in the academy - and to get her view on the potential pitfalls of the life for the 999 out of 1,000 hopefuls who never quite make the grade on tour.
