17-time Grand Slam champion Roger Federer has said that he cannot believe that he is 33 already and insisted that he feels like he was just a junior.

Age has not been a barrier for Federer as he still dominates the game, having spent 302 weeks at world number one and having been in the top 10 since 2002.

The Swiss claims that his priorities have changed in the past six years, insisting that he doesn't run to press right away when he has won a tournament, adding that he celebrates and spends time with friends and family first, News.com.au reported.

The current world number two said that he makes time for evenings of dinner, drinks and laughter, claiming that life on tour is crazy, just way too fast, so he added that one has to focus on rewards.

Federer said that the problem is that he can't believe that he is 33 years old already; adding that it feels like he was just a junior. So he said that that's one way to slow things down.
