Tennis legend Roger Federer has revealed that his dream retirement match would be to win either the US Open or Wimbledon, Tennis World USA report.
The 37-year-old, who has won 20 Grand Slams during his career so far, has been at the centre of retirement talks over recent years, with many believing the Swiss stars’ days are numbered.
However, Federer has showed no signs of stopping and is preparing to compete in the Shanghai Masters, a tournament he won last year.
Despite Federer not wanting to discuss when he will eventually retire, in an interview with L’Equipe, the veteran was asked what match he’d ideally retire on.
I would choose a final where I obviously win the title! The
opponent does not matter.
If I could choose the tournament, it would be Wimbledon or
US Open. Ending the tournament with a winning serve, it would be perfect.
Many believe that the former world number one will compete up until 2020 to compete at the Olympic Games held in Tokyo, however, Federer’s first concern will be coming out on top in Shanghai over the likes of Novak Djokovic, Juan Martin del Porto and Alexander Zverev.
