Roger Federer was asked by Mikaela Shiffrin if he will attend matches live on the biggest stages in the world once he retires. The Basel native said: "Good question. I think so. I think it would be totally wrong if I retired completely.
I love tennis too much. In the beginning it won't be easy for me. Just sit down and not have an influence on the game anymore. Especially in a stadium where people look at you and you are shown on the big screen. Tough."
Asked what he eats during a match, he added: "If I really need something, then I eat those energy things. But it doesn't happen often. I am still pretty old school like and I only drink water. I try to generally eat as soon as possible and I try to make sure my children do the same.
I think it's important to try everything and give a good example. I never had a diet but after my retirement, I would like to give myself a shot once." What were his most emotional off-court moments in career? "When several FC Basel players ended their career, there was a ceremony and I thought it was a shame they left the club.
That touched me a lot as well as the team's wins in Champions League. Another moment was when Gaston Gaudio won the French Open. He was so happy that he touched me a lot." He concluded: "I like movies about superheroes.
I just saw Avengers Endgame but then it did not work because my daughter wanted to speak all the time. I did not watch the last 20 minutes. Then I also like The Gladiator. I like Good Will Hunting, it was some time ago. And then there are many movies I lost. There are too many. "
