British swimmer Adam Peaty said that he has always been a passionate Roger Federer admirer in an interview with the Evening Standard. Three-time Olympic gold medalist Adam said Roger served as an inspiration to him. He said: “All the top athletes inspire me, but Roger Federer is the one I like the most.
I’ve always admired his style of play and demeanor on the field. Everyone wants to have his exceptional lifespan, which he has demonstrated.” John McEnroe also offered his thoughts on the Maestro’s comeback: “He is greatly missed by Roger Federer whenever a tournament begins without him.
I’ve never witnessed a tennis player more graceful than Roger. I’m eager for him to get back on the court because I adore this sport. He has every right to decide whether or not to rejoin the game, and no one may object to his choice.
Federer would need to be at least 80% better than before to be competitive at his age. We learned this through Andy Murray.”
Roger Federer has returned.
In 1998, Roger Federer made his ATP Tour debut. The 20-time Grand Slam champion has had a very long career and has taken many victories, despite a knee ailment that has severely restricted him the last two seasons.
The Swiss champion only participated in 13 official matches last year, winning nine and losing four. His greatest season achievements were the quarterfinals at Wimbledon and the round of 16 at Roland Garros, a pitiful haul for a legend of his stature.
The former world number one made the announcement that he will need surgery for the third time in 18 months a few weeks after the Championships. The 40-year-old Basel player will compete in the Laver Cup, which will be held at London’s O2 Arena from September 23–25, barring any additional setbacks.
Federer will also participate in the ATP event in Basel, which is back on the schedule after the epidemic forced the cancellation of the previous two seasons.
