Roger Federer has refused to confirm if he will continue to play in 2021, but he doesn’t see any reason why he wouldn’t right now.
Federer will turn 40 in 2022, and has committed to a hectic schedule for 2020 that includes all four Grand Slams, the Olympics, and the Laver Cup.
However, when quizzed by reporters on his exhibition tour about his longer terms plans, he was in no mood to speculate.
“2020 is set but 2021, I just don’t know because it’s too far away,” Federer said.
“But of course if I have the chance to play and everything’s still working sure why not?
“If the family is happy and healthy, that needs to be the case. If my wife feels the same way, that is important because happy wife, happy life.
You know how that works so it starts there. And then the body and the results.”
“It’s going to come down to that. Usually I don’t think over a year and a half ahead of time.
“I usually think a year ahead of time or a year and a little bit.”
