Roger Federer on longevity, retirement – and 100 (video)

INDIAN WELLS, Calif.  – Roger Federer came almost directly to Indian Wells from Dubai, arriving during the daytime Monday.

He hit the courts shortly afterwards and on Wednesday, pronounced himself almost back on schedule, jet-lag wise.

With the first-round bye (he’ll play the winner of Peter Gojowczyk and Andreas Seppi), he won’t have to play until the weekend.

And as he came in to do his media availability Wednesday afternoon, he touched on various subjects.

One that he didn’t particularly want to talk about was the looming decision by the ATP Tour players on CEO Chris Kermode’s future. But he went into various other areas.
