Even after 20 years of hard-work on tennis courts, Swiss Tennis legend Roger Federer does not have any retirement plans as of now. The tennis star clearly revealed during a recent press conference that he still has a lot of actions to showcase in the sport of tennis while jokingly saying that he "might also play till he turns 50."
"I may not be even so old, maybe in the future everyone will play until 50 years of age. I am shocked that I have been on tour for more than 20 years. It makes a bit sad because I enjoyed myself. But luckily, it has not finished yet," Federer was quoted as saying by Tennisworldusa during a press conference.
The 37-year-old tennis champion recently won the Halle Open 2019, taking the title for the tenth time. Talking about the upcoming Wimbledon Open 2019, the world number 3 men's singles player mentioned that he always performs well in the Grand Slam Tennis Tournament if he wins Halle Open. "Every time I’ve won in Halle, I went on to play really well at Wimbledon. It’s never a guarantee of course, but I’ve been on the Tour for long enough to know what it means," Federer said.
Federer, who has 20 Grand Slam Titles to his name, also pointed out that he is injury-free at present and will soon start practising for Wimbledon Open 2019. "Most important is I know I’m injury-free. I’m going to have a couple of days off I guess and then get ready once I’m going to be at Wimbledon practising again," he further said.

However, there is little time to rest for the ace tennis player before he starts his Wimbledon journey. "For now I’m going to enjoy this one, rest up a little bit, and then look forward to the rest. At the moment, everything is a big bonus for me,” the former World No. 1 tennis player said.
Federer will be gearing up to bag his ninth Wimbledon title this year, as the much-awaited Grand Slam tournament is set to commence from July 1, 2019. In Wimbledon 2017, he emerged champion after defeating Croatian player Marin Cilic in the final in straight sets 6-3 6-1 6-4.
