London, June 16 : Ace tennis player Roger Federer has no plans to retire soon, and believes he could play up to the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio Di Janeiro.
The 16-time Grand Slam champion will play at the 2012 Olympics in London, but the 31-year-old tennis superstar believes he can play on for many years just like legendary Andre Agassi, who won the 2003 Australian Open at an age 32.
"But why should London be the end? Why shouldn''t I be able to look forward to Rio?" Federer said in an interview in the German daily Die Welt," Sports24 reported.
"I would be 35-years-old. And at that age other players have had amazing performances. Look at Andre Agassi. He set a new standard," he added. (ANI)
