Courier reported, “Not great news if you’re a Roger Federer fan, which most of us are. Fitness is going to be the biggest factor going forward because he won’t lose his artistry with the racket. He just might not be in a position to hit as many great shots if his fitness isn’t there.”

The World No.8 made a comeback this year at the Qatar Open but failed to make an epic return. He lost to Nikoloz Basilashvili with a score of 6-3, 1-6, 5-7 at the quarter-finals. After the defeat, Federer went back to Geneva to give his body time to heal and get back into his form.
