If the year had started well for Roger Federer, with a defeat in the semi-finals of theAustralian Open in front of Novak Djokovic, over the weeks it has turned into a nightmare.

“I am still fighting for my return, I want to come back to the tennis court. I would love to play with the legends of the game and the best players. And I feel that maybe there is a little more left in me. I’m definitely not going to be retiring from the game just yet. But it’s fun to be an entrepreneur, a philanthropist, a tennis player and all that. But, no, I’m not going to retire sooner ” so declared Roger Federer, in comments relayed by essentiallysports.
