Roger Federer will play his next match at the Miami Open, but tennis legend has said that he is not planning to stay around winning his title number 200. He said that he is very happy to win his 100 titles at this moment.

Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) quoted Federer saying that “Not another 100, I can tell you that, I hope a few more. I am just very happy to be at 100 already. It is exciting to have won that many and to have gotten another chance in Indian Wells. It was a pity [to lose to Dominic Thiem]… but it’s how it goes, so I just have to keep plugging away and hopefully give myself some opportunities.”

He added saying, “The important thing is to be healthy, happy playing and that’s exactly how I feel right now sitting here in Miami.”

Federer was pretty much engaged in a few months to start the year 2019. He suffered a disappointing fourth defeat in the Australian Open as he lost to Stefanos Tsitsipas of Greece, but the Swiss star returned as he had won the Dubai Tennis Championship after defeating him. He followed it up by reaching his ninth final in Paribas Open.

The tennis star lost in the finals of Paribas open, but the player asserted that doesn’t have any regrets on losing the final match to Dominic Thiem as he played better than him in the finals.

Federer said, “I felt like that one was easier to digest, even though the result was close. I felt like I was still happy with the run I had in Dubai and Indian Wells.”

Federer has clinched three Miami titles, all of which were won at Key Biscayne, where the tournament was played for 32 years.
