Roger Federer‘s return to the tennis court is eagerly anticipated by fans. The former world number one has had a really difficult two seasons as a result of a major right knee injury. Despite not being able to play as much or as often as he would have liked, the veteran Basel player never gave retirement any thought.
The King only participated in 13 official games last year, recording nine victories and four defeats. The 40-year-old Swiss withdrew from the Tokyo Olympics to have a new knee operation after making it to the quarterfinals at Wimbledon in 2021.
The 20-time Grand Slam champion is still recovering from the procedure, but Laver Cup participation is anticipated to resume next month. The Maestro will finish his incredibly brief season at the ATP in Basel, which has been rescheduled after the previous two editions were postponed due to the epidemic.
Everyone wants to see Federer be allowed to leave the game on his terms. Andy Roddick recently discussed Roger’s chances in more detail on the Tennis Channel.
Roddick considers King Roger.
Roddick stated, “Roger Federer is aware of what he was recovering from following these past knee surgeries.
“He wasn’t moving all that well and resembled Roger only in name. He certainly understands it will be a difficult battle to have him return after that lossy time and have another knee operation added to that “Added he.
Roddick went on to say how “terrible” it was to see one of the top athletes in the world struggle physically. We have to be patient, Roddick remarked. “It’s terrible to witness the game’s icons perish as a result of their failing bodies.
Personally, I’m hoping he can return and depart on his own terms. He may not be as good as he once was, but that doesn’t matter to me right now “said the American. It’s crucial that he receives the proper farewell.
One of the best players to have competed in the competition was the Swiss master. He has also won an incredible eight Wimbledon championships. Wimbledon was Federer‘s final competition before retiring. Following his Wimbledon quarterfinal loss to Hubert Hurkacz, he sustained a knee injury.
Which has prevented him from playing tennis for more than a year now. He has also dropped off the ATP rankings chart and lost all of his ranking points.
