Roger Federer may arguably be the best tennis player in the world. However, if he was not a tennis player, what else could he have been doing?

That’s some food for thought. The Swiss star pondered over this question in an interview with Simon Parker of the BBC, albeit in a different manner.

Simon asked Roger about an unexplored part of himself that he might like to pursue after retirement. Maybe, something he’s bad at and wants to improve.

Let’s find out what Roger had to say.

What Did Roger Federer Say?
After joking that he doesn’t even know how to iron a shirt, Roger talked about his unexplored passion –

“There’s a lot of things that I can’t do as well. That’s also one of the big beauties of what’s coming after. Actually, I’ll have the time to learn a new instrument, maybe another language, or maybe go visit some places I’ve never been to and learn from that. I’m a good tennis player doesn’t mean I’m good at everything else. And I think it’s also quite exciting to start somewhere from scratch again. By far not a good chef or good cook by any stretch, so I’ll look to learn that as well. That can be done altogether with my children because I know they love their cooking.”

Talking about playing instruments, Roger also talked about which ones he might experiment with. He revealed that he liked playing the piano growing up and might pursue that.

However, he said there’s an instrument his wife likes which he wants to learn and eventually surprise her. He didn’t reveal what the instrument was.

Without further ado, let’s find out what the Swiss maestro had to say.

What Did Roger Federer Say?
This is what Roger had to say on the question of what he will be looking forward to the most once the clock stops ticking-

“I think not having such a rigid schedule in some ways. Where most of the time when you come home, I don’t wanna say where everything is somewhat planned. It’s nice for maybe, several days, not to have much. Or, I think, more than anything, it’s being able to put on the calendar, on Wednesday the 15th, we can meet up with lunch with those friends. Just way ahead of time, already look forward to those moments.”

Roger revealed that currently, most of his plans were contingent upon his tennis schedule. This meant that if he was injured, he might make plans for a get-together. However, if a sudden commitment props up, everything goes down the drain.
Roger Federer had some heartbreaking news for his fans today. The Swiss maestro revealed that his right knee required surgery.

Among other things, the certainity associated with a post-retirement life attracts him.

Post this, Roger talked about what scares him about retirement-

“I think it’s maybe not the right word as such. But, maybe I’ll miss to some extent probably the adrenaline rushes and all that. At the same time, maybe it is also a nice thing to get away from that all. So, I have the butterflies in my tummy. As beautiful as they are, when it’s all said and done, maybe it’s also nice to not have that at all, that pressure is one thing, and having to perform.”
