“I don’t know if Roger Federer will win another Slam” as Trouble Looms for Federer
Former number 5 ATP Fernando Gonzalez analyzed Roger Federer’s prospects in detail. The Swiss hasn’t played an official match since Wimbledon 2021 Gonzalez said: “I am convinced that Roger Federer will want to say goodbye sooner or later, but if he comes back it means he feels he can do something important.
have his say if he’s healthy Roger knows his body very well and has an experienced team that follows him. The main problem will be seeing how his physique will react to a sequence of close matches. I don’t know if Federer will be able to win another Grand Slam, but I think he can finish with a flourish if the knee leaves him alone.”
The Swiss Maestro was overtaken by Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic in the all-time Grand Slam standings, with the Serbian also breaking the record for weeks at the top of the ATP rankings. Roger’s last seal in a Major now dates back to the 2018 Australian Open, but no one forgets the two match points wasted in the 2019 Wimbledon final.
Federer: Laver Cup and Basel 2022
Shortly after the end of the US Open, there will be the Laver Cup. The O2 Arena in London will therefore host the return of Roger Federer, who has not played an official match since Wimbledon 2021.
The last two seasons have been a real ordeal for the Swiss champion , who was unable to play as and as much as he would have liked due to a right knee injury. Suffice it to say that the former ATP number 1 played just 13 official matches in 2021, collecting nine wins and four losses.
A few weeks after the 2021 Championships, the 20-time Grand Slam champion announced that he will have to operate for the third time in 18 months. After the highly anticipated return to the Laver Cup, the King will close his very short season at the ATP in Basel. According to his statements, the 41-year-old from Basel is expected to play some tournaments in 2023 as well.
