Retirement not on Roger Federer’s mind after sweeping into Australian Open last 16
- Swiss No 3 seed beats Taylor Fritz 6-2, 7-5, 6-2
- Defending champion to play Stefanos Tsitsipas next
Roger Federer at 37 shows no signs of sending his fans into mourning by even thinking about retiring from tennis, and said after his 100th match on Rod Laver Arena, “For the time being, it’s all good. Lights are on green.”
The six-time and defending champion is chasing a hat-trick at the Australian Open, confirming his form and fitness with a comfortable straight sets win on Friday over the 21-year-old American, Taylor Fritz (who was making his debut on the tournament’s showcase court), to advance to the fourth round of a slam for the 64th time.
