Federer says he’s still hungry as US Open starts
Even though Federer only has one title so far this season, his lowest total in a decade, and he’s gone the past six major tournaments without a championship, he’s sure he has more success in store. He still is capable of producing masterful tennis, such as when he ended Djokovic’s 43-match winning streak by beating him in the French Open semifinals.
“This guy is arguably the greatest of all time,” McEnroe said. “He’s still playing some great tennis.”
Federer takes inspiration from past players who played well in their 30s, such as Ken Rosewall, Jimmy Connors and Agassi, who was 35 when he lost to the Swiss star in the 2005 U.S. Open final, a year before retiring.
“I feel my game allows me to still play for many more years, because I have a relaxing playing style. I have almost played 1,000 matches on tour and that leaves its toll, but I’m very professional when it comes to massages, stretching, diet, sleep, all of that stuff,” Federer said. “So I have always looked in the long term. … That’s why I’m confident I can still play for many more years to come at the highest of levels.”
