Federer’s last Grand Slam title came at the 2018 Australian Open.
He came extremely close at Grand Slam No 21 at Wimbledon this year, only to miss two match-point opportunities as Novak Djokovic clinched the title.
At 38 years old, Federer would become the oldest Grand Slam champion in history if he was to add to his incredible collection.
The top two ranked players in the world have won the last seven major titles between them.
However, Federer isn’t getting caught up with the battle at the top having achieved so much in his career already.
“I have had such a good run, I have played tennis for so long so I am at peace if I cannot do it anymore,” he said.
“If I can win another Grand Slam or still compete with the best for the next months or years, that would be wonderful.
“But I want to enjoy myself on the road because tennis gives us a lot and I like to give back or go to new places like Chile.
“I would not say going to Chile is more exciting than playing Wimbledon but I played Wimbledon 20 times.
“So to be in new places keeps the fire burning.”
Federer is currently touring North and South America alongside Alexander Zverev where the pair were scheduled to play five exhibition matches in different countries.
They began the week in Chile before flying to Argentina the next day, but their match in Bogota, Colombia was cancelled due to a curfew being put in place in the city with on-going protests and security concerns.
That hasn’t affected things moving forward though as they touched down in Mexico on Saturday.
And the pair are expected to play in front of a record crowd in excess of 40,000.
