Jim Courier, the former World No.1 says the upcoming tournaments this year might be sad news for Roger Federer fans. As these might be the last appearances of the Swiss maestro.
Federer has been out of the sport for over a year because of undergoing the knife twice for his knee injury. The 39-year-old last appearance was at the 2020 Australian Open, where he lost to Novak Djokovic.
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.
Recently the Swiss maestro reported taking part in the upcoming Roland Garros. However, his coaches claim Federer isn’t completely fit to play the tournament at his full potential. Further, Roger never takes part in tournaments when he isn’t ready, but why he’s in a hurry this time.
Therefore, many sports pundits believe Roger will soon turn 40. Therefore, his body might not match the pace of his smart mind in the upcoming years. Thus, the Swiss might want to say his farewell to the sport because is he can’t play at all next year.
We might witness the magical performance of Roger Federer for the last time this year. Therefore, we need to prepare our hearts for the harsh reality and enjoy every upcoming game of the Swiss superstar. Further, the retirement of Roger will be an enormous blow to the world of tennis.
