Roger Federer says he has “no updates” on his retirement plans.

Federer will be 39 this year and he has previously hinted that he would like to still be playing when he is 40.

“No updates on retirement or any plans to stop playing,” he said ahead of the Match In Africa.

“The family is healthy, my wife is cool and I am feeling pretty good and I feel I can still compete at the highest level, which I feel I did again in Australia, I am happy to keep on playing. You never know, but at the moment I have no plans for any retirement and all that. I am happy that the season actually has started as well as it did.”

Federer will face Nadal in a “Match of Africa” on Friday, February 7.
