Tennis ace Roger Federer says he has given up most recreational sports for fear of picking up an injury that will keep the 16-time Grand Slam winner off the tennis court. He said that he last skied three years ago but stopped after he fell ill, and he has hasn't played much football regularly since 2001 when "he was unable to move" following several games.
"To be quite honest, I do miss (skiing). I used to do it up until a few years ago," Federer said. "Last time I skied was in 2008 when I had mono. Came back after the Australian Open, went skiing, and next day I got ill again. So I was like, OK, it's a sign for me. No more skiing. That's a pity." he added.
