Roger Federer, among his dozens of all-time records, he has won 20 Grand Slam singles titles, has held the No. 1 spot in the ATP rankings for 302 weeks, and has won six or more titles at six different tournaments.

Commenting on his mindset for setting the 2019 tournaments schedule, In an interview to Tages Anzeiger, the 37-year-old said: “It’s very important to reflect on my life from all corners.

“From my wife, family, team, physio, coach. To decide: how much time do I spend on what? I would only like to spend time with my family and play tennis. But even the physio, coach and many others want something from me. I do not have problems with practising.

But sometimes it’s better to play more. In Shanghai, I had some extremely sore muscles. Here in London, I was physically better. That means I also have to play enough to gain rhythm. And I have to reach the ultimate limit in training, or beyond.”

Kevin Anderson also lost in the semifinals, to Novak Djokovic.
