When interviewed by Argentine television, David Nalbandian shared an interesting anecdote about Roger Federer. During the Masters 1000 in Monte Carlo, Nalbandian remembered challenging Rafael Nadal and David Ferrer to a video game showdown.
He disclosed the following: “We had a little tournament planned, and the loser had to take the elevator down to the lobby in his underwear or something. Since I came out on the losing end, negotiations were off the table. I decided to take the elevator, and when it opened, to my amusement, there stood Roger Federer and Mirka.
What a cringeworthy predicament! “The former Argentine player said. Roger said in a recent interview that he is eager to get back on the field: “I’m well aware that my playing days are numbered.
It’s something I occasionally, but not constantly, ruminate on. My primary objective is a speedy recovery so that I can resume tennis competition. I think about it constantly and put in a lot of effort to make it happen.”
The years 2022 and 2023 will see Roger Federer return to the tennis court.
Federer, in his opinion, needs to join the team in 2023.
After Roger’s final game, he plans to put away his racket for good. In the past two years, the Swiss phenomenon has had three procedures performed on his right knee, all of which have left him unable to play at his peak.
His most recent competitive outing was at Wimbledon 2021, where he advanced to the semifinals despite facing an improbable scoreboard. The unpredictable Hubert Hurkacz, who could even bagel him on Center Court, put an end to his sprint.
Several weeks later, the ex-world number one tennis player revealed that he needed yet another knee surgery. The Laver Cup is scheduled for the O2 Arena in London, United Kingdom, on September 23-25. The King is expected to return unless there are any further unforeseen circumstances.
After missing the last two years due to the pandemic, the ATP tournament in Basel has returned to the schedule, and the 20-time Grand Slam winner plans to play in it.
