Roger Federer: 'I won't play smaller events to break 100 career-titles barrer'

Roger Federer is not going to play lower-level tournaments in the future to win more than 100 career-titles. The Swiss player currently has 91, he is three away from equalling Ivan Lendl (94) and 18 from Connors (109). I guess it would be nice to reach 100 just because it´s a good number.

But then again, I´m not picking the easy ones to win, to be honest. I´m not going to play smaller tournaments just to chase that, as you can see. I´m even now taking a ten-week break´, Federer said in press conference at Miami last week.

´Like I said, health comes before everything, before every record at this point. But sure, this has been an incredible start winning three titles this year and none last year. Things are definitely better this year. But for those kind of numbers I need to stick around for a while and play very, very well at the high level.

It´s going to be difficult so we´ll see what happens. 100 would be a great number, of course. Federer played four official events (Australian Open, Dubai, Indian Wells and Miami) this year so far and he will play Roland Garros in late May next.

Then in the grass-courts season he will be at Stuttgart, Halle and Wimbledon. ALSO READ: OFFICIAL: Roger Federer to skip Madrid and Rome, will come back at Roland Garros
