New York: Roger Federer insists that he will return to the US Open in 2016 despite losing Sunday`s final 6-4, 5-7, 6-4, 6-4 to Novak Djokovic.

Federer will be 35 next year and his last title of five in New York came back in 2008.

But at the presentation ceremony, he had no intention of following women`s champion Flavia Pennetta by announcing his retirement.

"I feel good about where my game is at the moment. Everyone keeps challenging me and I love the sport. I`ll see you back here next year," said Federer, who won the most recent of his 17 majors at Wimbledon in 2012.
