‘Roger Federer wouldn’t have had that career if…’, says former star

Swiss Radio Television (SRF) would be delighted to have Roger Federer in the role of tennis analyst or commentator. Federer, a 20-time Grand Slam champion, retired from professional tennis after the Laver Cup. In recent weeks, it has been rumored that the BBC is looking for its commentary team for Wimbledon 2023.

“Every television network in the world would be delighted to have Federer as a tennis expert, and for us, as a public service medium. of Switzerland, of course, that is especially true,” the SRF said. Sue Barker, a legendary Wimbledon presenter who retired from her role after this year’s Wimbledon, recently held a question and answer session at the Rose Theater in Kingston.

According to Stuart Higgins of the Kingston Nub News, Barker “also dropped a strong hint that tennis legend Roger Federer, who officially retired at the Laver Cup tournament in 2002 last month, could join the commentary team.
from the BBC for Wimbledon next year” Meanwhile, Federer hasn’t revealed much about his future plans, except that he plans to focus on his family during his retirement. Since he announced his retirement, Federer hinted several times what might happen in the future, but did not make any promises.

For example, Federer hinted that he might one day be a tennis commentator and also suggested that he might play exhibitions one day. But whatever Federer decides to do next, he will do it for the joy of it. “I have the great luxury of not having to do anything I don’t feel like doing,” Federer said recently.
At Wimbledon, Federer is an eight-time champion and a true legend and icon. Federer commentating the Wimbledon matches would certainly attract a lot of attention. But Federer, who turned 41 in August, has been officially retired for just a month.
Federer will undoubtedly take more time before deciding his next move.

Noah comments on King Roger
Yannick Noah, guest of RMC on Monday, does not “believe in the best of all time” For him, Roger Federer is therefore not necessarily so, especially when the winner of Roland-Garros 1983 remembers Rod Laver, who won the Grand Slam twice – which none of the modern cadors has done -, or Björn Borg with whom he crossed swords: “He won everything and he stopped at 26, so he could have played fourteen more years …

He shot everyone, he put real jerks, he wins five times in a row at Wimbledon playing from the baseline, when the grass was going 100 an hour.” This does not prevent the former player from admiring “Roger”, particularly for his farewell to the Laver Cup: “Before the lights went out, I liked his humanity, I loved his emotion, his speech for his darling… Because you don’t make such a career alone.”
