Federer spoke about retirement, in a recent interview with BritishGQ.
Without a question, the 40-year-old is one of the best tennis players of all time. The former World No. 1 had a long and illustrious career that has included numerous world records.
“Like any athlete, you will just know when the time is right
. I am not going to be one that’s just going to stick around because I want to stick around…fans mean a lot to me but I do not want to abuse my body
. I still want to run around with my kids and ski,” he said.
The former World No. 1 provided a brief update on his recovery after knee surgery.
He claimed to be “in a really good place” and that the worst was over. Federer has, however, expressed an interest in returning to the court in 2022.
