When Roger Federer hangs up his racquet, he plans to take one final spin. The three operations on his right knee that the Swiss phenom has had in the last two years have prevented him from playing as much as he would have liked.
At Wimbledon in 2021, he reached the quarterfinals after a rather fortunate draw let him get there. Hubert Hurkacz, who was even able to hand him a bagel on Centre Court, put an abrupt end to his winning streak.
Tennis legend Boris Becker was forced to undergo knee surgery for the third time in less than two months. The King is anticipated to make a comeback at the Laver Cup, which will be staged at London’s O2 Arena from September 23-25, barring any additional unforeseen circumstances.
Rafael Nadal will compete in the ATP Basel tournament, which was canceled for the last two years owing to the pandemic. When David Nalbandian appeared on Argentine television a few days ago, he narrated a tale involving the 40-year-old Swiss.
This is Nalbandian’s story.
During the Monte Carlo Masters 1000, David Nalbandian challenged Rafael Nadal and David Ferrer to a video game duel. “A modest tournament had been setup and the loser was instructed to take the elevator down to the foyer.
Because I was the loser, I was unable to bargain. As a result, I made my way to the elevator, when, to my amusement, the doors opened to see Roger Federer and Mirka Strycova.
It was an extremely uncomfortable scenario “-recounted the former Argentine player. According to a recent interview with King Roger, he is eagerly awaiting his return to the throne “My playing days are few, and I am well aware of this.
It occurs to me occasionally, but not frequently. My first objective is to return to tennis as quickly as possible. Achieving that goal is something I’m working toward, and I’m thinking about it. every single day of the week.” Federer expects to be back on the court in 2023, according to his predictions.
