17-time Grand Slam champion, Roger Federer, may have botched to pull off a Grand Slam title in the last two seasons; but that does not imply that the Swiss cannot append another major to his kitty, feels legendary coach, Tony Roche.

At 33, Federer is one of those few players who are considered to be a serious threat across all the tournaments of the sport, including the coveted four Grand Slam events in a calendar year.

“I think he can play as long as he wants to on the mental side. Physically, I think he can play for another four-five years without any problem,” Roche was quoted as saying by the Times of India.

“Another Slam definitely… Obviously, Wimbledon is his best chance but he’s knocking on the door in last few Slams. As long as the guys still respect Roger, he is always going to be a threat.

“Roger is the most talented player to ever play the game.”

69-year-old Roche, the winner of the French Open title in 1966, has had the coaching experience of training the likes of Ivan Lendl, Patrick Rafter and Lleyton Hewitt among the other famed personalities of the sport.
