Federer spoke candidly on the R word in an interview with German publication Zeit.

“In principle, I was only concerned with my health, but now I miss the feeling of playing in a full stadium,” Federer told Zeit. “Retirement is getting closer and I will miss tennis so much.

"It would be easier for me to retire now, but I wanna give myself a chance to keep enjoying my time on the court.”
