Roger Federer: I want to Have 20 Grand Slam titles

Former World No. 1 and currently ranked World No. 3, Roger Federer, is looking for 20 Grand Slam titles before taking retirement from tennis.

With 16 Grand Slam titles beside his name, the twenty-nine-year-old Federer is the most successful Grand Slam winner. This veteran tennis player wants to increase his record with hauling four more Grand Slam titles. He hopes that he can do it in the next couple of years. He says,

"I believe that having won three Grand Slams per season three times, and two per year a couple of times, it's something do-able,"

Roger Federer won his last Grand Slam title at the Australian Open this year. Since then he could not achieve any big title. It raised question about his ability of winning competitive tournaments or matches.

How much realistic is Roger Federer’s vision of 20 Grand Slam? He is now 29-year-old and it is somewhat much old age. Tennis players think of taking retirement at this age. However, it does not mean that there is no exceptional.

Former great tennis player, Andre Agassi, proved that age is not a big factor to get victory in any big tournament. It is interesting to see that he won four of these eight Grand Slam titles after he turned 29.

Pete Sampras, who has bagged 14 Grand Slam titles, won his seventh Wimbledon title just before he turned 29 and won his final U.S. Open two years later.

However, any serious injury could also conclude Roger Federer’s sporting career any time. Now, fans are passionately waiting to see if he can set his goal to win at least 20 Grand Slam titles or it will be hard to find for him.
