Roger Federer, who slipped to the third place in the ATP singles rankings, after the resurgence from Novak Djokovic, says he has already made a few plans as far as his post-retirement life is concerned. Federer revealed that he would like to travel and visit all the places that he ever played in. “After my career, I will not sit on the sofa”, said Roger Federer, in an exclusive interview with NZZ.
“Recently I bought an old autobus from the 60s”, continued Federer. “I am looking forward to travel by it. Europe is little, everything is easily accessible. Travelling is much easier than ever. I would like to visit all the cities and countries where I was as a tennis player – completely relaxed and without the sports pressure.’ Federer said.
Federer also emphasized that he will focus on spending more time with his family as well as getting proper rest and relaxation incorporated into his routine.“Resting is a great need for me as well”, said Federer. At the moment I am in the same place up to three, four weeks in a row. I am looking forward to staying home longer. I had a little of taste of what could have happened during my injury break two years ago. It was wonderful. In the end, you are home where the family is.”
“Until I am with my wife Mirka, my four children, the world goes well for me”, added Roger Federer. “But obviously, there are places that mean more to me than others (the family), and Basilea is at the top. Now my home is where children feel most comfortable. Wherever is in mountain or Wollerau. I lived in many places – Ecublens, Bienne. In Dubai, I had an apartment for 15 years”, he added.
