Long sleep, healthy diet: Roger Federer spills the beans on longevity

At an age when most tennis players are enjoying their life post retirement, Roger Federer’s been playing perhaps the best tennis of his life.

The 37-year-old missed out on winning his 21st Grand Slam title by a whisker after he squandered championship points en route to a five-set defeat at the hands of Serbian rival Novak Djokovic at the Wimbledon recently.

That, however, was the only defeat he suffered during the grass season, finishing with a 11-1 record.

So, what’s the secret behind his longevity? Federer was asked just that, and he came up with a simple answer.

“My keys to longevity are very simple, yet not always easy to achieve at this stage of my life,” the Swiss was quoted as saying by Bolamarela.

“I try to sleep well, many hours. And eat healthily. Overall, I have succeeded, but not always.”

Meanwhile, Federer decided not to participate at Rogers Cup in Montreal to stay fresh for the American swing. He is directly scheduled to play the Cincinnati Masters in the run-up to the final Major of the year, the US Open.
