It’s the return so many fans, enthusiasts, and connoisseurs have been waiting for. He has already started the countdown to see Roger Federer on court again. After a long injury and rehabilitation to get back in good physical condition, he is ready to surprise everyone again at 41 years old.
In less than a month, the Swiss will participate in the 2022 edition of the Laver Cup alongside Team Europe led by Bjorn Borg, which also has Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and Andy Murray on the team.
In a recent interview, former tennis player Barbara Schett expressed her opinion: «Everyone is eager to see him play again. The current perplexity is whether he will also play singles in the Laver Cup or just doubles.
He is not so young anymore and has been away for a long time. His last match was more than a year ago, you can train as much as you want but nothing compares to a professional match at the highest level, which subjects your body to a very high adrenaline rush.
I always worry that one day I will say ‘enough’, I would like him to play Wimbledon and retire, but it is a personal decision,» she said. The Austrian Eurosport commentator also made some comments about the upcoming US Open, in particular Novak’s exclusion. Djokovic: «I think I should have played.
We are at a time when everyone is relaxed. Even in Australia you can already enter without being vaccinated. I would have liked to see it, it’s very sad,» she said.
King Roger is a true legend.
John McEnroe acknowledges that it is almost impossible to imagine Roger Federer losing any time soon despite his advanced age, as a result of his unparalleled reputation and greatness.
«Obviously, Roger has the right to do whatever he wants. And if he feels like it, he could do some damage,» McEnroe said. «It’s hard to imagine that at 41 years old Federer can win a Major, but I said it again six years ago when he came back after not playing for six months and having surgery at Wimbledon after the year I was with Milos and got to The endings.
You expect Roger to be Roger, up to a point. That’s because they’re so cool that always, it’s like when we saw Serena, and you said, wow, did she lose the first round at Wimbledon?» McEnroe said.
«You feel like it’s almost impossible, no matter how long they haven’t played. Roger Federer is in a similar situation. He hasn’t played a match, it will be 15 months.»
