Roger Federer reveals what he wants to do when he retires

Former world No. 1 Roger Federer wants to enjoy other sports and travel around the world when he finishes his career. Federer, a 20-time Grand Slam champion, turned 40 this week. "I want to attend the NBA, NHL and NFL finals.

Go to Tokyo. Visit the most beautiful parks in the world with my children. Learn to play saxophone. Ski, go snowboarding, scuba diving," Federer said, per We Are Tennis. Federer hasn't played since Wimbledon due to a knee problem.

"I was on vacation. I haven’t done anything for a while, because of the knee. I had to let everything sink in after Wimbledon. This week I’m still meeting my doctors and my team and then we’ll see how it should go on.

At the moment, everything is still a little uncertain”.

Federer still able to play at the highest level

Federer made the Wimbledon quarterfinal, before picking up a straight-set loss to Hubert Hurkacz. "To some extent it's nice to see that the work I put in paid off [and] that I'm able to play at this level with best-of-five sets,” Federer said.

“When you're young, you don't ask yourself the question. But when you're me, with the year I had, it's all question marks all over the place. You have to prove it again to yourself that you can actually do it.

I was willing to take losses for the sake of information, just to be out there, [to] get the body in shape forhopefully when Wimbledon comes around,m that I can actually wake up in the morning and feel all right, that I can still go out and play five sets.

“I feel that way, so it's very rewarding and it's a good feeling. Now we'll see how much more I’ve got left in the tank. Clearly [it] was important again to win in straight sets. [I am] looking forward to the next round."
