During a conversation on LinkedIn, Patrick Mouratoglou took a closer look at Roger Federer’s perspectives. Federer’s return is still a long way off, despite there could be a date: mid Summer or the eginning of the Fall.
The Frenchman said: “The last Grand Slam title won by Roger Federer dates back to 2018. He has only played three majors in the past two seasons and has already announced that he will not attend Wimbledon this year. I see it hard that he can increase his Grand Slam tally.”
Patrick also focused on Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic: “Before the Australian Open 2022, Nole was by far in pole position. Rafa’s victory in Melbourne turned the tables on the table, forcing Djokovic to chase again.
The next big tournament will be Roland Garros, which Nadal has won seven times in the past 10 years. If he were to establish himself in 2022, the pressure on Nole would increase dramatically. At that point, the Serbian would be forced to win Wimbledon.”
Roger Federer: hopes about his come back
The 34-year-old from Belgrade should have no problem playing Roland Garros, as France abolished the Green Pass about a week ago. Fans all over the world are eager for Roger Federer to return to the Tour.
The former ATP number 1 has played very little in recent years, thanks to a serious right knee injury that forced him to three operations in 18 months. The Swiss star played just 13 official matches last year, collecting nine wins and four losses.
The round of 16 at Roland Garros and the quarterfinals at Wimbledon were his best seasonal results, a far too meager booty for a legend of his caliber. A few weeks after the Championships, the 40-year-old from Basel decided to undergo yet another knee surgery in the hope of solving the problem.
Recently, the 20-time Grand Slam champion announced his plans to return in late summer or early autumn, perhaps for the Laver Cup (which will take place at London’s O2 Arena in late September). The hope of the fans is that the King can worthily end an amazing career.
