Tennis icon Roger Federer is no mood to stop performing at the highest level despite age catching upon him. Now, a former World number one and seven-time Grand Slam winner, Mats Wilander, has said that according to him Federer can perhaps continue for quite some time to come now.
“He seems to have this unbelievable ability to lose a couple of matches on the regular tour but it doesn’t seem to affect him that much in terms of how he works, his practice and how he plays five-set matches”, Mats Wilander told Eurosport before the US Open.
“Obviously we are dreaming to think that he is going to be a threat in Grand Slams for another five years, that’s not going to happen but I would say most probably his career will come to an end maybe at the end of 2021 or 2022.
“This is when we have to most probably think ‘okay, that has to be it’ but hey, he’s already defying everything we thought was possible in tennis.”
Roger Federer may have missed out on a golden opportunity to win another Grand Slam Trophy as he lost to Novak Djokovic in the longest Wimbledon Final but is determined to do well in the US Open and add another Grand Slam title to his trophy-laden career.
