Former world No. 1 Roger Federer admits retirement is getting closer but he knows he will miss tennis so much once his career ends so he wants to play as long as possible.
Federer, who will be turning 39 years this August, is still one of the top players on the Tour and over the last few years, he has proved that he is still capable of making deep runs on the biggest tournaments.
Federer, now ranked at No. 4 in the world, made only one appearance this year as he reached the semifinal at the Australian Open before he lost to eventual champion Novak Djokovic in three sets.
The 38-year-old Swiss holds the record for the most Grand Slam titles captured and he has also spent the most weeks as world Number one.
The 38-year-old hoped he would be ready for the grass season but his recovery didn’t go as planned and the former world Number 1 last month underwent a second knee surgery.
