Father time remains undefeated

Tennis living legend Roger Federer says that he hopes injury doesn't force his hand when it comes time to step away from tennis amid Andy Murray's tearful announcement that his career is coming to an end due to a hip problem.

Federer, the most successful male player in tennis history, is set to begin his 21st season, and questions have begun to be asked as to his exit strategy from the sport he has dominated for the best part of two decades.

On Friday, Andy Murray announced that he would soon be ending his career after failing to adequately recover from a hip injury which has stymied his progress since 2017, and Federer says that he hopes to avoid a similar fate.

"I'd like to go out on my terms. I don't have the fairytale ending in my head saying there has to be another title somewhere, and then I have to announce it big and say, that was it, by the way, guys. I don't have to have it that way.  If I wanted it that way, I could've maybe said it after the Australian Open when I beat Rafa in that epic final. I don't know if it's ever going to get better than that, because that was it for me."  

Roger will be missed once he officially decides to hang it up. 

Wimbledon might be the perfect setting.
