Roger Federer does not play tennis "just to protect this record". But another Grand Slam couldn't hurt

Australian John Millman, confronting Roger Federer in the third round of the Australian Open on Friday evening down under, was driving 8-4 out of a fifth-set sudden death round, only two focuses away from pulling off the furious. Be that as it may, Millman's end came soon enough, in a regular Federer whirlwind. A strike champ, by means of Federer's enchantment wand of a tennis racquet. Millman submitted unforced blunders, as Federer would not give up the point. A Federer drop shot. Federer ran off six straight focuses, because of his edges nimbleness, still solid at age 38. He dominated the game, a 4-6, 7-6, 6-4, 4-6, 7-6 epic, to progress to the fourth round, in which he'll confront M├írton Fucsovics of Hungary. 

Federer enters the 2020 season looking for a pad on his Grand Slam record. He's won 20 Grand Slam singles titles, more than some other male player ever. In any case, Rafael Nadal is pursuing him down: Nadal won the French Open — his absurd twelfth — and the U.S. Open in 2019, to give him 19 Grand Slam titles for his profession. Federer last won a Slam two years prior, at the Australian Open. Novak Djokovic, who won the Aussie Open and Wimbledon — over Federer in the last — in '19, is likewise in especially in the blend, with 16 vocation titles. 

The fixing Grand Slam race is tennis' most alluring subplot of the period. Federer could confront Djokovic in the elimination rounds of this Australian Open, and Nadal in a possibly tempting last. 

Federer, be that as it may, demands he's not as centered around his Slam aggregate as fans and media. "Toward the day's end, I don't play tennis just to ensure that record," Federer read a clock before the beginning of the competition. "I'm in reality here to make my own story." For Federer, breaking the Grand Slam record was a lifelong zenith: he passed Pete Sampras, who won 14 singles titles, at Wimbledon in 2009, when he outlived Andy Roddick in the last, winning the fifth set 16-14. "That was my minute," says Federer, "whatever else I generally said was a reward." 

Would Federer like to hold the Grand Slam record for eternity? Obviously. Be that as it may, if Nadal, Djokovic or another person not far off outperforms him, Federer swears he's "absolutely settled. Absolutely settled." 

He's now started anticipating his future. Toward the end of last year, Federer reported he was turning into a financial specialist in On, a Swiss footwear brand. Federer anticipates being substantially more than a detached member in the organization: he's an energetic sneakerhead, and he'll be associated with the plan of On shoes. Federer joins the developing rundown of genius competitors who are accomplishing more than basically marking rich support manages enormous organizations (however Federer still has a lot of those, with organizations like Uniqlo, Rolex, Credit Suisse). LeBron James has a creation organization; Tom Brady has his TB12 wellbeing engrave. Federer, be that as it may, hasn't sought different competitors for business motivation: Federer said he was uninformed of James' creation organization, SpringHill Entertainment, until I referenced it in discussion. 

"I truly need to do it my way, with my life, with my family, with my experience being from Switzerland," says Federer. "I tune in to what my heart and my stomach reveals to me I ought to or shouldn't do." 

His business impulses appear to be paying off. Team8, the organization he helped to establish with his long-lasting specialist Tony Godsick, reps none other than Coco Gauff, the 15-year-old American wunderkind who knocked off safeguarding champion Naomi Osaka at Rod Laver Arena on Friday. Federer will quit playing tennis sooner or later. In any case, his impact on the game isn't going anyplace.
