Dominic Stricker stated in a video made available by the ATP that playing tennis alongside Roger Federer was a privilege. As Stricker clarified: “The experience of working out with Roger Federer will always be memorable to me.
I relished every second I had on the field with him. I’m overjoyed to have been given this chance.” Mats Wilander provided a thorough analysis of the King’s chances while speaking at Eurosport: “If Federer believes he can fight with the greatest, he will only go back to a stable plant.
His ranking is not kind to him, and he might have to play Novak Djokovic in a Grand Slam quarterfinal next year. He won’t agree to do it until he believes he has a chance. Nobody is currently able to predict what level he will be at.
He is completely clueless. I hope to see him at Wimbledon in 2023 if he is in good physical condition. I believe Roger’s comeback will resemble Serena Williams‘ in certain aspects.” Since Wimbledon 2021, the Swiss legend has not participated in an organized match.
Return of Roger Federer to the court
Numerous children all over the world are inspired by Roger Federer. The knee issue that has plagued the Swiss wonder for the past two seasons has had no bearing whatsoever on his extraordinary career.
In just 13 official matches in 2021, the former ATP No. 1 recorded nine victories and four defeats. The 40-year-old Basel player has declared that he will need surgery for the third time in 18 months after suffering a crushing loss to Hubert Hurkacz in the Wimbledon 2021 quarterfinals.
The 20-time Grand Slam champion has never given up on playing again, even after a drawn-out recovery process. The Maestro will make a comeback during the Laver Cup, which will be held from September 23 to 25 at the O2 Arena in London, barring any additional unanticipated circumstances.
The ATP in Basel, which is back on the calendar after the previous two editions were postponed due to the pandemic, will serve as the Swiss player’s final event of a relatively brief season.
