David Nalbandian: “I was in my underwear in front of Roger Federer and his wife”
In an interview with Argentine television, David Nalbandian shared an intriguing anecdote about Roger Federer. While at the Monte Carlo Masters 1000, Nalbandian recalled challenging Rafael Nadal and David Ferrer to a video game showdown.
He explained that they had a tournament and the loser should have taken the elevator to the lobby in his underwear. I was the loser, so I wasn’t given any bargaining power.
Therefore, I rode the elevator, and the amusing thing is that upon exiting, I came face to face with Roger Federer and Mirka. The former Argentine player described the incident as “extremely humiliating.”
Roger admitted in a recent interview that he was eager to resume playing tennis despite knowing that his playing days were numbered. On occasion, but not frequently, I give it some thought.
Playing tennis again is one of my top priorities. Every day, I remind myself of my goal, and I work diligently toward it.
In 2022 and 2023, Roger Federer will return to the tennis court.
Even Roger Federer says he plans to return to the court in 2023.
If Roger can squeeze in one more match before he retires, that would be great. The Swiss phenomenon has been sidelined for the better part of two years due to three operations on his right knee.
In his most recent public outing, he competed at Wimbledon 2021 and advanced to the semifinals, a feat he accomplished in part by benefiting from an easy scoreboard. Hubert Hurkacz, who was on a roll and even took a 6-0 lead on Center Court, put an end to his streak.
Former world No. 1 ATP tennis player announced he needed knee surgery for the umpteenth time a few weeks later. The Laver Cup will be held at the O2 Arena in London from September 23-25, and the King is expected to return there barring any new unforeseen events.
Twenty-time Grand Slam winner Roger Federer will play in the ATP Basel tournament, which was postponed for two years due to the pandemic but is now back on the schedule.
