Roger Federer reveals his post-career plans

Roger Federer turned 37 years old in August and the Swiss player has not decided where to end his career yet. But the Swiss has some thoughts on what he will do once he retires from tennis. 'After my career, I will not sit on the sofa', Federer told NZZ.

'Recently I bought an old autobus from 60s. I am looking forward to travel by it. Europe is little, everything is easily accessible. Travelling is easier than ever. I would like to visit all the cities and countries where I was as a tennis player - completely relaxed and without the sports pressure.' Federer added: 'Resting is a great need for me as well.

At the moment I am in the same place up to three, four weeks in a row. I am looking forward to staying home longer. I had a little of taste of what could have happened during my injury break two years ago. It was wonderful.' Federer also spoke about the concept of feeling like at home: 'In the end, you are home where the family is.

Until I am with my wife Mirka, my four children, the world goes well for me. But obviously, there are places that mean more to me than others, and Basilea is at the top. Now my home is where children feel most comfortable. Wherever is in mountain or Wollerau.

I lived in many places - Ecublens, Bienne. In Dubai, I had an apartment for 15 years, even if now I would not call it home. Dubai is mostly a training base for the transition time when it's cold in Switzerland. But I feel well there as well.' ALSO READ: 'Roger Federer should never play on clay again' - Andy Roddick
