Federer, Nadal and Djokovic may still keep playing at 45 years of age - Farah

The Colombians Juan Sebastian Cabal and Robert Farah will face Bob and Mike Bryan in Bogota at the Movistar Arena. Cabal said: "For us it's a pleasure to end the year at home. They have a crazy history. It's a honor to face them and an icing on the cake for our season."

Farah added: "It's a honor. When we were kids, they were winning the Grand Slams. We lost the first four times we faced them but then we have won five times. It's definitely special. Facing Bob and Mike is funny and we always have to give our best.

It will be a great match for the crowd." He also spoke about the Colombian tennis: "The changing of the guard needs to happen when it's time to, this is a process. The same thing was for Federer, Nadal, Djokovic, they may keep being the best, at 45 years of age they may keep playing, but this change will happen when the generations start prevailing."

As a big challenge for the 2020 season, both Cabal and Farah said that the big focus will be the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo and the schedule will be built around this event that takes place between July and August. After his Wimbledon success earlier this year, Farah had said: "I mean, I'm speechless.

Really, I kept watching the watch through the first and second set. I'm like, we finished the second set and it's been 2 hours and 15 minutes play. This is ridiculous. How long is this? From there on, we just kept battling, kept battling, just focus on the game.

Once we lose the fourth set, we have that break. We sat down, I put my legs up, I got a rub by my physio. Sebas put his legs up, too. Sorry. Once we come back to the court, I seriously had a second wind. I felt so good again. I feel like we played unreal that third set."
