Roger Federer is one of the most loved tennis players in the world – not only for his unprecedented achievements on court, but also for his grounded personality.

At 33, he has showed no signs of slowing down, and much to the bliss of his fans, the Swiss maestro confirmed that he won’t hang up his boots anytime soon.

Federer, who on Friday defeated Damir Dzumhur to sail through to the third round of the prestigious French Open 2015 in Paris, revealed in his post-match press conference that he will probably play for five more years.

“I may stop the following day or I may go on for another five years, I don’t know,” Federer responded when asked if he would continue to play for few more years or would rather hang up his boots in the near future.

“What I can tell you is that if I win Wimbledon or another Grand Slam, I’ll be extremely happy so it won’t make a difference,” he added.

As far as the tournament goes, Federer is scheduled to lock horns with 13th seed Gael Monfils of France for a place in the last-eight stage.
