Roger Federer makes quick work of John Isner in Miami Open final

Roger Federer continues to prove he has no reason to go away anytime soon.

So he was taken aback when a reporter asked if making quick work of defending Miami Open champion John Isner in a 6-1, 6-4 men’s singles final on Sunday afternoon would be the perfect way to go out in Miami for the 37-year-old 20-time Grand Slam champion.

“And not come back here?” Federer quipped. “Sure, it’d be the perfect scenario. But as I don’t know what the situation is for next year, I can’t say that. I hope to be back next year, but if I don’t come back ever again, this is a good ending.

“I don’t have to announce anything, and of course, when you win a big title you can always think that way, but I didn’t have any thoughts about this kind of direction in my mind before the event and it won’t change now that I’m sitting here with the trophy.”
