World No. 3 Stan Wawrinka has dumped off retirement talks as he intends to expand his on-court journey a few more good years.

The 31-year-old has been a late bloomer, having pulled off his first Grand Slam title at the Australian Open in 2014. Since then, he has gone on to pocket two more Grand Slams – French Open 2015 and the US Open 2016.

“First I must say that I do not see it (playing tennis) as work,” Wawrinka told Schweizer Illustrierte. “Therefore I will remain as long as possible. I have no idea how my time will look after that.”

Furthermore, the Swiss also opined on the much-hyped Novak Djokovic-Roger Federer rivalry. Asked if the former – a 12-time Grand Slam champion – can surpass the latter’s record of 17 majors, he said: “Perhaps, Novak will. But we can’t assume.”

Meanwhile, Wawrinka is currently competing at the Shanghai Masters where he defeated Britain’s Kyle Edmund 6-3 6-4 in the second-round battle here on Wednesday.
