Roger Federer has established himself as one of the longest-running athletes of all time. The 20-time Grand Slam champion, 38, has no intention of retiring. He has already assured that he will be ready for the start of the 2021 season.

Federer has undergone a double surgery, which will force you to skip the rest of the year. The Swiss Maestro stressed the importance of resting to help his longevity.

“If I don’t sleep 11 to 12 hours per day, it’s not right. If I don’t have that amount of sleep, I hurt myself” – Roger Federer explained.

The former World number 1 has won more Grand Slam tournament titles (20) than any other men’s singles player. He is also the first men’s singles player to have reached ten consecutive Grand Slam tournament finals and a total of 31 Grand Slam finals.
