Federer is warming up for Wimbledon and the 36-year-old knows that he will have to leave the sport for good at some point.

When speaking about retirement, he said:

“The most important thing, first of all, is the joy of the game. The feeling of winning, to hear the audience and to give them pleasure. And to prove to myself and my team that I can win another tournament or defend a title.”

“But of course, the end is closer than ever before. But I also do not know when it’s over.”

“It will be very interesting and funny after that. I’m curious how it will be. But I am also convinced that the leap into the future will work.”

Federer is one of the favourites to win Wimbledon and has returned to action fresh and full of energy, whilst his counterpart Nadal takes some time off to recover from a gruelling clay-court season.
