Roger Federer talks about his prime days as the Swiss lost to the Spaniard Pablo Andujar at the ATP 25 in Geneva.
The Swiss veteran was absent from the court for over a year, as the player went knife twice for his knee injury last year. The 40-year-old returned this year at the Qatar Open but failed to make his mark.
After the loss, Roger went back home to rest his body and work on his form for the upcoming matches. Federer was looking forward to the Roland Garros. However, the Grand Slam got postponed. Therefore, Federer took part in the Geneva Open to adapt to the clay-court prior to the French Open.
The homeland tournament at Geneva didn’t go in the favor of the Swiss as King Federer lost at the event. Roger played against World No.75 in the first round and lost the 250 circuit with a score of 4-6, 6-4, 4-6.1
After the defeat at Geneva, the 20-times Grand Slam winner recalled his glory days and talked about his recent performance on the court. Roger Federer reported, “Of course, there were moments where I was happy to entertain the crowd and looking at the long road. You know the comeback, you want to be back on the court, expect better from me. As I am feeling better at the practice and even in practice here. But as we know matches are different animals.”
Well played, gents 👏

Federer is now well aware that he still needs to work on his form prior to the Roland Garros and Tokyo Olympics. As the level of these competitions will be significantly higher than the Geneva Open. There Roger Federer might have to face his old-time rivals like Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic. Further, the young generation is also a constant threat to the Swiss star.
