Roger Federer, future as a coach: "Never say never"

Roger Federer was undoubtedly the most loved tennis player in history, but this year he shocked everyone by closing his career for good. The Swiss champion, winner of 20 Grand Slam titles, is now in Japan and shared some anecdotes about his family and what he is currently doing.

Here are the words of him during a Uniqlo event. He told: "The mental aspect in tennis is very important. Tennis players have understood that it is essential to disconnect from time to time, whether it is three months or nine months, sometimes you have to rest because the path in this sport is very hard.

It is difficult to be constantly on the go, in training and with a lot of jet lag. Nobody can say they are tired, especially since this makes you weak in the eyes of the rival. This leads tennis players to end their careers with mental problems, in the end we are not machines.

We must understand that we are human."

The former tennis player then revealed what could happen in his future: "I'm a little afraid to do other sports after retirement.

My knees look better, we have to wait a few months and see how the situation evolves. Now for me and the family it's time to travel, I want them to be a lot of fun. I would like to take my children to Africa, now compared to the past I hope that the holidays can be relaxing.

After a lifetime of tennis now I want to relax. I am retired and I want to have some more adventure holidays." Roger Federer then spoke of a possible future in the world of tennis as a coach: "Currently my four children go to school and I don't see myself with what is happening in the world as a coach at the moment.

But never say never. If a young Swiss arrives who needs support or advice, I will be happy to help him." Important words that open up a new future for Roger in the much loved world of tennis.
