For a short break, Roger Federer has taken his family to Greece. There are still a few months until the return of the Swiss player, and the King has no plans to hasten things. We can expect to see him again at the Laver Cup, which will be held at the O2 Arena in London from September 23rd to 25th, barring any unforeseen circumstances.
Twenty-time Grand Slam winner Roger Federer will wrap up his abbreviated ATP season in Basel, which returns to the schedule after missing the past two years due to the pandemic. The 40-year-old is expected to return to competition in a limited number of events in 2023, as per his own statements.
Injury to his right knee has made the former ATP number one’s last two seasons difficult. The Maestro has been surpassed in the all-time Grand Slam standings by Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic, with the Serbian also setting a new record for weeks spent as the number one player in the world.
Over the course of a lengthy interview with the Swiss newspaper “Coopzeitung,” Federer discussed his favorite pastimes with his kids.
Regarding his offspring, King Roger says
With his two sons and two daughters in tow, Roger Federer sat down with the Swiss newspaper Coopzeitung for a casual, kid-focused interview in which he discussed their favorite hobbies and pastimes.
I haven’t even started teaching them how to play cards yet, but Uno is always a hit. I also spent two weeks of the pandemic with my kids working on a Lego version of Harry Potter’s castle. We put in a small table tennis set and spend a lot of time there as a family.
Andy Roddick admitted on the Kasich and Klepper Podcast that he was “jealous” of Roger Federer. He stated that the Swiss’ character was the source of his envy rather than the Swiss’ achievements. He’s very simple to use, isn’t it?” This, Roddick remarked.
If I could do what he does, I’d play a practice match and stay out there for two hours. I would play it as if it were the first run of a grand slam match, and Roger would be joking and laughing as I passed his court three days later.
Not only that, but he now seems calm. I was envious of how he could “kind of tend to his responsibilities away from the court, kind of always be in a good mood,” he said, adding that this was particularly irritating to the rest of the gloomy people.
