Roger Federer‘s exceptional talent and inherent class have won over millions of fans all around the world. The former ATP No. 1 has won every honor imaginable, despite the fact that Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic have stolen a number of his records during the last two years.
A serious sporting hardship for the King has started with the semifinal run at the Australian Open 2020. The bad right knee injury that the Swiss champion had to deal with stopped him from playing as much as he would have liked.
Just 13 official matches were played in 2021 by the Basel great, who failed to go past the round of 16 at Roland Garros and the quarterfinals at Wimbledon. The 20-time Grand Slam champion said he would need surgery for the third time in 18 months a few weeks after the Championships.
In the absence of any further unexpected events, the Maestro will play in the Laver Cup once more before finishing his brief season at the ATP in Basel. Federer was named the most skilled player ever by Fernando Verdasco in a lengthy interview given to Mundo Deportivo.
Opener for Verdasco is Federer
Verdasco stated that “all players require work, work, and more work; it’s not only talent.” “Roger Federer may appear to be the most skilled player in history because he has the most beautiful game, but I’m sure he has trained very hard; let’s not talk about Nadal or Djokovic.
He used Roger Federer to demonstrate how, like the Swiss, he too is motivated by his pure love of the game. “I am one of the tennis players who prioritizes tennis over everything else. I enjoy the following quote from Roger Federer: “If you love the game and are good at it, why stop playing?” “Verdasco says.
Verdasco stated, “It has been the most famous match of my career, the semifinals of the Australian Open versus the number one in the world, the two Spaniards, a match of more than five hours; the level was astounding. Sometimes the memory comes back to me, and other times people come back to me.
Somebody stops me on the street years and years later and tells me that it is the best match he has ever watched. The 22-time Grand Slam winner withdrew from the National Bank Open in Montreal earlier this week because his stomach strain could not heal in time. This incident happened during his Wimbledon quarterfinal encounter against Taylor Fritz.
