Roger Federer had insisted that he will not retire, even after he had played in the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio.
The 34-year-old Swiss will be celebrating his 35th birthday around the time of the event, but he believes that he has what it takes to make a haul of Olympic medals.
He will be playing in the singles and mixed doubles, but he has not made up his mind on men’s doubles.
“No plans to retire yet. I don’t have a definite date even though that would help to make things easier to plan,” Federer said.
Federer has not tasted Grand Slam glory since his last victory at Wimbledon in 2012, but claims that he is anticipating the forthcoming Australian Open event.
“The Australian Open is obviously a big goal for me. And after that it’s going to be a long, tough year.”
“So I’m happy I’m feeling fine physically and in good shape and of course, like I say so many times I hope I’m still on tour for a while.”
