James Blake, a former ATP number four, professed his adoration for Roger Federer via his Twitter account. At the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, Blake defeated The Swiss Maestro. Blake later commented, “I’m still amazed by some of the things I’ve seen Roger Federer accomplish.”
Federer is no longer in the running to be named the Greatest of All Time, claims former Spanish player Tommy Robredo: “Right present, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic are competing for the GOAT title. Depending on whether we place the Davis Cup, the Finals, the Masters 1000, and the weeks spent at the top of the ATP ranking before we consider the number of Grand Slams won as the most significant criteria.
Making an unbiased decision is difficult.” Fernando Gonzalez, a Chilean, is more upbeat about Roger’s return: “His talent is undeniable, and he has a strong understanding of his body. The most important thing will be to see how his body responds between matches.”
Roger Federer‘s innate class and endurance won over millions of admirers. Along with his enduring adversaries Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic, the former world number one contributed to the growth of tennis.
The King has enjoyed relatively little success on the tennis court over the past two seasons, in part because of a severe knee injury to his right. It suffices to state that the 40-year-old Swiss player only participated in 13 official games in 2021, winning nine and losing four.
His finest season achievements were the round of 16 at Roland Garros and the quarterfinals at Wimbledon, a fairly low total for a legend of his stature. The Basel great said that he will need surgery for the third time in 18 months a few weeks after the Championships.
If no more complications arise, the 20-time Grand Slam victor will compete in the Laver Cup in late September at London’s O2 Arena.
