Federer aiming for ‘longevity’ against younger rivals


Singapore, Jan 4: Swiss tennis great Roger Federer on Friday said he was still hungry to win trophies but “longevity” was now his main goal as younger rivals stand in the way of more records and victories.
“I want to try and make this last as long as I can... I don’t want to fizzle out,” the world number two, holder of an unmatched 17 Grand Slams, told journalists in Singapore.
“I think longevity is the word here that I’m looking for,” he said during a stopover on his way to the Australian Open in Melbourne.
“I hope to keep on playing for many years, because I love it. I love the pressure of playing with a new generation coming up, who are, you know, improving quickly,” said the father of twin girls.
Federer, who won a singles silver at the London 2012 Olympics and a gold in doubles at Beijing 2008, still wants to compete at the 2016 Games in Rio, when he will be 35, an age when most tennis professionals have retired. AFP
I was gonna start a thread for this in the Off Topic forum, but...

Also a survey in L'Équipe asked the readers if they believed Federer would stay in the big 4 in 2013. 95% believe so. Looks bad for Everfail...
