Swiss tennis ace Roger Federer articulated his desire to make a visit to India - the country where he is wants to visit and have a quality vacation with his family.

In an interview with the Times of India, Federer said: "It (India) has always intrigued me. My wife and I always talk about visiting and vacationing there. It would be fantastic if a friend could take us through the country to the different places, where we can taste the contrasting cultures that make up India."

RAJASTHAN, TAJ MAHAL - IDEAL TRAVEL DESTINATIONS

"I want to go to Rajasthan, see the Great Indian Desert; I want to see the Taj Mahal. I’d like to travel down south, and the east and west. I’m not sure if one trip is enough for India – there’s so much to your country, an ancient civilization."

HOW ABOUT PLAYING IN INDIA 

"I’d like to play in India – play there now in my prime, more so for my fans. More than playing tennis, I want to travel to India. I know I’ve a lot of fans in India, and 'the lot' would have something to do with your numbers. You and China are large on numbers and, in many ways that adds to the atmosphere."

INDIA AS A DIVERSE COUNTRY

Gripped by the country's diversity, Federer stated: "I’m curious about the languages, how they sound when spoken by the local people. India has always intrigued me."

TENNIS' TALENT IN INDIA

"India has produced a lot of great players... superb doubles players. Now with Somdev (Devvarman), you’ll be doing well in singles again; it would be nice to have a player from India challenging for the big titles in singles. I hope that happens soon."

Federer is currently bidding for his sixth title at the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championship, where he has already made it into the quarterfinals of the singles event.
