Federer says he is still agile as before and likes to move on

In the coming August he will be 35. Still, Roger Federer wants to go strong. He does not feel he has come to the end of the road of his glorious career which slightly slipped off in last couple of years. Still, Federer, while talking about himself prior to the Wimbledon, starting on Monday, said, “You probably did not imagine that I would be able to stop Andy Murray in the Wimbledon last summer. Or you could not think I would be able to stop the man in form Novak Djokovic in the final of ATP Barclay Masters.”

Federer admitted that he had truly thought that his career had come at stake when doctor asked him for knee surgery after Federer crashed out of the Australian Open last year. He remembered, “I was little bit of scared initially. It was the first time in my career I had to undergo a surgery. More importantly, I lost motivation, brooding over whether I would be able to back on the court with the same speed.”

The 34-year old artist does not have any plans of retirement now. Federer says, “Actually I put zero thought about on the retirement issue. I feel it should come naturally” Federer added saying, “I do not feel my movement and the accuracy level in the service and shots have faltered a lot. I still can unleash the variety in my shots as I used to do before. So, immediately I have no plans on retirement.”


He was asked whether he would associate himself with tennis even after retirement. Federer smilingly replied, “I do not know. But it is true that tennis has given me everything. So, I should pay the game back something. Who knows? I can also start a coaching school for the kids in Switzerland.”
