Roger Federer may have lost the US Open final, but retirement still not on the cards

It’s been pretty long since Roger Federer last won a Grand Slam. It’s not that he’s lost the golden touch, but the Swiss maestro, more often than not, has stumbled to make through the majors.

Federer’s Grand Slam drought further bulged on Sunday after Serbia’s Novak Djokovic  denied the Swiss in the US Open finals. The defeat, however, hasn’t deterred him from moving forward in his quest to add on to his tally of 17 titles.

“I am playing a good year. I’m playing good tennis,” the 34-year-old was quoted as saying, shrugging off the retirement talks.

“I am happy with where my level is at. I’m able to be consistent, very consistent,” he continued. “So something I will work on, and keep moving forward, you know. It’s no problem for me.”

Federer has had a great  outing this season. Besides winning the ATP titles in Brisbane, Dubai, Istanbul, Halle and Cincinnati, the sport’s talisman finished as the runner-up at two majors (Wimbledon being the other).

With a commendable win-loss record of  51-8 this year, it’s safe to say that he still has a lot more left in him, isn’t it?
