Roger Federer: 'Wimbledon seemed to be perfect moment to retire, but...'

If Roger Federer wanted to end his career in a dreamy scenario, like for example Pete Sampras and Flavia Pennetta did by winning US Open title, he could have definitely done it in 2017 as he won two Grand Slam titles, Australian Open and Wimbledon. Still, it's not the end for the Swiss, who didn't feel the necessity of going out on a fairytale. 'I was asked if I had considered it or wouldn’t it be the perfect moment? Yes it seemed like it', the 36-year-old told The Sunday Times. 'But I was standing there in the press (conference) or the next day and I felt like well I did all the rehab not really just to win Wimbledon.'

And instead he is still there, making this week his fourth appearance ever at the Hopman Cup. Federer is enjoying himself a lot on the Tour, and so he did during the Player's Party on New Year Eve. 'I'd like to introduce my partner, she's so young or I'm so old. I could be her dad. Belinda Bencic', Federer said during the NYE Gala in Perth. Here below the video:
