Roger Federer: 'My family and I will embrace amazing road trips when I retire'

Roger Federer has been a professional for over two decades, traveling across the globe numerous times and battling for the most famous tennis trophies in almost every part of our planet. Federer's traveling adventures have been widely restricted in the past year and a half due to the pandemic and a severe knee injury that required three surgeries!

Since February last year, Roger has played only five ATP tournaments and 13 matches, doing his best to recover from an injury and fight for the titles again. Federer reached the Wimbledon quarter-final as the oldest player in the Open era before deciding to undergo the third surgery and miss the rest of the season.

Roger turned 40 in August, and his tennis future is unclear at the moment, despite a huge despite to get back on track and retire on his terms. At the end of 2018, Roger arrived in Perth for the last edition of the Hopman Cup, seeking another notable season in 2019 after winning his 20th Major crown at the Australian Open 2018 and becoming world no.

1 again in February. In the closing stages of 2018, Roger visited the Nambung National Park and the famous Pinnacles for the first time, enjoying with his kids on the beautiful beach and holding a live western rock lobster.

Roger expressed his passion for traveling and revealed that he plans to go around the world with his family once he retires, aiming to explore Western Australia more and visit the countries where he has never been before.

Roger Federer shared what he wants to do once he retires.

"Many things need to happen to win a Major. I hope that it will be the start of a great season for me because the last two seasons have been crazy good. I'm thrilled with how the off-season went.

The last three or four weeks have been very intense. I'm very excited and motivated for this next season. We'll probably play it down a bit and say it's not that big of a deal for both Serena and me, it's just another tennis match, but it isn't because it's probably going to happen once and never again.

That's why I hope we're both going to be injury-free when that day comes around. Serena is a fantastic player, and I have watched her over the years. Now, it's not a match between just the two of us but also between Belinda and Frances.

I'm expecting it to be interesting. People do not know this about me, but I love road trips. It's a dream that when I retire, and my kids are a little older, I'll embark on these types of trips myself, not just in Western Australia but worldwide," Roger Federer said.
