“I know my Limitations”: Roger Federer Discusses Expectations After Geneva Open Loss

Roger Federer lost to Pablo Andujar at the 2021 Geneva Open.

Roger Federer, the 20-times Grand Slam winner got knocked out of the Geneva Open against the Spaniard Pablo Andujar. The Swiss said he knows his limitations and knows to work on his form.

The Swiss veteran underwent two knee surgeries last year, resulting in him missing the majority of the 2020 season. Federer even didn’t participate at the Australian Open this year to rest his body and made his comeback at Qatar Open.

Federer lost in Doha to Nikoloz Basilashvili in the quarter-finals with a score of 6-3, 1-6, 5-7. After the loss, Roger went back home to Switzerland to rest his body and work on his form.

Roger again returned after his last defeat, however, the Swiss again failed to shine. As the great veteran lost to Andujar with a score of 4-6, 6-4, 4-6. Therefore, Federer isn’t impressed with his game and needs to push his limits prior to the Roland Garros, as the expectations from the former World No.1 are really high.

Federer reported in a post-match interview, “I know my limitations at the moment.

“People expect a lot from me and I have high expectations for myself.

“So when I walk out of a match and feel I could have played so much better, it feels strange and it’s disappointing.”

Roger Federer needs to up his game for the upcoming Roland Garros and Wimbledon. As the level of the upcoming competition will be way higher than the ATP 250 in Geneva. The Swiss might even face his old-time rivals like Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal, who is a French Open favorite. Further, the next-generation players are a constant threat to Federer.
