18th Grand Slam not an obsession –Federer


Roger Federer insisted he will keep playing into

2015 but would not become obsessed with

winning an 18th Grand Slam title after the 33-

year-old Swiss was beaten in straight sets by

Marin Cilic in the US Open semi-final.

It’s five years since Federer last made the final in

New York, when he was upstaged by Juan Martin

del Potro, AFP reports.

“It’s not important to my life. I don’t need it to be

happier or anything,” said the Swiss veteran when

asked how significant an achievement it would be

to capture an 18th major.

Federer’s caution is understandable given he has

won just one major, Wimbledon in 2012, since his

16th at the 2010 Australian Open.

“I’ll give it a go again in Australia (next January);

hope to be healthy there.”
