0 21

World number three, Roger Federer has insisted he does not have any plans of retiring after the 2016 Rio Olympic Games.

The Swiss will turn 35 during the Rio Games, where he will play in the singles and mixed doubles alongside Martina Hingis.

He said, “I’ve planned all of 2016, you know all the way through the Rio Olympics and beyond.

“No plans to retire yet. I don’t have a definite date even though that would help to make things easier to plan.

“The Australian Open is obviously a big goal for me. And after that it’s going to be a long, tough year.

“So I’m happy I’m feeling fine physically and in good shape and of course, like I say so many times I hope I’m still on tour for a while.”

The 35-year old plans to add an Olympic gold in the singles to complete a career clean sweep of Australian Open, French Open, Wimbledon, US Open and Davis Cup titles. He would join Rafael Nadal and Andre Agassi as the only figures to achieve such a feat in the Tennis.
