Roger Federer’s long “journey” to courts around the world literally made tennis fans fall in love with him. Different generations have been able to admire his exploits on the circuit thanks to his high level competitions for more than two decades.
For about a year and a half, however, his tennis life has come to a screeching halt due to the Coronavirus pandemic but, above all, to physical problems. Most will have thought of his inevitable retirement given the many obstacles to which is added the age component which certainly does not help.
As of February 2020, Federer has only appeared in five ATP tournaments and has only played 13 games, advancing to the quarter-finals at Wimbledon this year as the maximum result. Hence the decision to undergo knee surgery for the third time and to end the season earlier.
The future of the Swiss champion is totally uncertain so far, but he has made it clear on several occasions that he wants to continue or at least stop when he decides and not for reasons of force majeure. Once out of tennis, Federer will turn the page and devote himself to one of his great passions outside of tennis: traveling “on the road”
In 2018 Roger Federer was in Perth for the last edition of the Hopman Cup but not only. The Swiss first visited Nambung National Park and the famous Pinnacles with his family. A video of him holding a live western rock lobster in his hand went viral.
Roger therefore expressed his passion for travel and revealed that he intended to travel around the world with his loved ones at the end of his career.
Uncle Toni talks about the Big 3
Rafael Nadal’s uncle and former coach Toni Nadal believes his nephew Roger Federer and Rod Laver would have heaved a sigh of relief after Novak Djokovic lost in the US Open final.
“I think Roger and Rafael will have heaved a sigh of relief (and I guess Rod Laver will too) and they should now feel a little stronger to continue racing next year,” Toni Nadal wrote. . The 60-year-old believes that while Djokovic will be affected by his loss, he will find a way to restore his dominance next season.
That said, Uncle Toni believes that Federer and Nadal will be able to resume their famous rivalry with the Serbian next season. “Djokovic will suffer from such a painful loss but will lift his head to face next season.
Federer and Rafael will see their spirits renewed, “he added.” And the three will continue to give reasons for their millions of followers, still spellbound, to follow and support them for a while longer. ”
