Federer: “Winning ATP 250 better than Masters Semis”
Roger Federer, who is currently playing at the Basel Open, is looking to close in the gap between him and Jimmy Connors, for holding the record for most number of titles. Jimmy Connors, ended his career at 109 titles, and Roger Federer is currently on 98. Federer, in an interview last week said he was hoping he could touch the 100 mark (Read the article here: Roger Federer: ‘I Would Love to Get to 100 Titles’).
Has Federer grown tired of the questions that have targeted his retirement and age factor? “I have been answering these questions since 2009, it’s not a problem for me anymore”, said the Swiss maestro. “In the right context, these questions can be right, but sometimes simply inappropriate. But they are never bad because look, I think it’s beautiful to play at 37, and I would have never thought to do it”, he said.
Roger will play his next round at the Basel Open later today, where he will face Jan-Lennard Struff, who defeated Federer’s conqueror, John Millman, at the US Open earlier this year.
