Roger Federer has dismissed rumours of retirement saying he will continue to play as long as he remains competitive.

“As long as I have fun and it’s right for all of us, I’ll keep going,” Federer told Schweizer Illustrierte.

But the 20-time Grand Slam winner, who is currently injured after knee-surgery, said he had been making plans a future beyond tennis.

“I have been thinking about ideas for about five years,” he said.

“I will focus on my family, my foundation and my sponsors. I am very interested in business ideas and entrepreneurship. But I definitely don’t want to plan everything now.

“I want to go back to many places where I’ve been. I like to travel to Asia and South America.

“I liked Mexico, Chile, and Colombia too. I can imagine taking part in exhibition matches, taking tennis to places where this sport is still little noticed.”

Federer is expected to return to tennis in January at the Australian Open in Melbourne.
