Shanghai: Roger Federer said on Monday he is convinced he can still compete at the pinnacle of the men's game as he plots to end a rough year on a high by reaching the World Tour Finals.

The Swiss great, who has slipped to seventh in the world rankings after failing to reach a Grand Slam final in 2013, said his aim at the start of the year was to qualify for the end-of-season showpiece in London and nothing had changed.

The 32-year-old, who has won just one tournament this year and made early exits at Wimbledon and the US Open, is also seventh in the race to reach next month's Tour Finals, featuring the season's best eight players.
