Roger Federer has not been seen since he injured his knee again during last year’s grass season. A few weeks after Wimbledon 2021, the Swiss phenomenon announced that he had suffered a relapse in his right knee and had to operate for the third time.
The former world number 1 did not provide guarantees regarding his return to the ATP circuit, but flaunted his proverbial optimism. Recently, the 20-time Grand Slam champion announced that he would return to play in late summer or early fall.
We may see him in action at the Laver Cup, which takes place at London’s O2 Arena in late September. The last two years have been a nightmare for the 40-year-old from Basel, who saw the all-time record for Grand Slams by Rafael Nadal.
As if that weren’t enough, Novak Djokovic took away the record of weeks at the top of the world ranking. In a recent interview with the DorsetLive portal, Scott Parker, former Chelsea midfielder and current AFC Bournemouth manager, mentioned Roger Federer himself
Federer is expected to coem back in the Fall
Parker said: “The emotional state of the players is the key in any sport. I am reminded of Roger Federer, who was the best tennis player in the world for several years. He is very balanced when he plays.
He sticks to the process and understands the moments perfectly, which helps him deal with them right. My team is still young, but that’s where we have to get to.” In a long conversation on Radio 10, Toni Nadal praised the Maestro from Basel: “When I do my analyzes, I try not to be anyone’s fan and to evaluate everyone with extreme objectivity.
Who is the best of the Big 3? It is not easy to give an objective answer. The greatest is the one who has remained at the top for longer than the others? Or is he the one who has won the most titles? The truth is that there is very little difference between Djokovic, Nadal and Federer. In my opinion, Roger is the one who has accomplished the greatest feats.”
