The time of Roger Federer‘s comeback is drawing near. The exhibition he founded, the Laver Cup, will feature the former world number one from 23 to 25 September at London’s O2 Arena. The ATP in Basel, which is back on the calendar after the previous two editions were postponed due to the epidemic, will host the conclusion of the extremely brief season for the Swiss sensation.
The King hasn’t played as much or as often as he would have wanted the past two seasons due to a significant knee injury. It suffices to state that the Basel native, 40, competed in just 13 official games in 2021, winning nine and losing four.
His greatest season achievements were the quarterfinals at Wimbledon and the round of 16 at Roland Garros, a disappointing total for a legend of his stature. The 20-time Grand Slam champion is anticipated to compete in a few tournaments in 2023, based on his words.
The coach of Simona Halep, Patrick Mouratoglou, recently praised Federer in an interview with “Spiegel Online.”
King Roger is praised by Mouratoglou.
“A genius, Roger Federer is. He is a tennis prodigy.
I don’t believe I’ve ever seen a tennis player play that manner. And I believe I won’t do it until I pass away. He does everything perfectly, “According to a remark from Mouratoglou. For the second year in a row, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer had advanced to the grass-court major final.
Federer was attempting to become the first person to win six consecutive Wimbledon championships, which would have set a record. According to Rafa, “He had won so much and had been so dominant for so long that he was playing, as he had once remarked, “for history.”
Rafa, however, was unwilling to give up since winning a major on a grass court was equally important to him. The athlete wanted to win his first Wimbledon championship. “Winning this match mattered as much to him as it did to me; losing would be equally agonizing for any of us,” the athlete claims.
The biggest hurdle Rafa looked to be facing at that time was Federer. But he remained composed. The only thing you can do, he says, “when Federer has these game, patches of incredible brilliance, is try to keep cool, wait for the storm to pass.” There isn’t much to separate Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, and Novak Djokovic in terms of titles won.
