Roger Federer: “I can’t believe I’m 40! It’s awful!”

“I’m happy, even if I’m still joking. I can’t believe I’m 40! It’s awful! But overall, I think I’m happy.
I remember when I turned 20. You think you know a little about who you are, but you have no idea. At 30, you have some idea, a pretty good one, you realize. But at 40, I think you know. “, Federer told GQ Magazine, quoted by Tennisworldusa.
