Despite world famous DJ Kygo declaring in 2020 that he is “coming for” Roger Federer after showcasing his tennis skills on social media, the Swiss maestro has yet to respond to Kygo’s ambitious wish, but the pandemic, injuries to Roger and his desire to spend time with family are solid reasons why Roger would leave Kygo out.
In the past, the Norwegian DJ hit a few balls with the young American Taylor Fritz and later called for a rematch on social media. Be that as it may, Kygo is minding his own business, doing what he does best: producing music.
One of Kygo’s last appearances was at the Untold Festival, a top five Romanian music festival in Cluj-Napoca, where he put on a truly impressive show just one day before Roger Federer’s birthday. (August 8). Kygo himself described the show he was able to put on: “That was a next level Untold Festival!” After belting out hits like “Higher Love,” “What’s Love Got To Do With It” and “Firestone,” Kygo continued on and thanked the tens of thousands in attendance.
“They have been an extraordinary audience. I love you so much” The Untold Festival, with 7 editions, is one of the largest music festivals in the world and is presented under the slogan “The world capital of night and magic”
According to his description on Festicket, “UNTOLD Festival is one of the biggest and best dance music festivals in Europe, attracting thousands of devoted fans each summer to the Romanian city of Cluj-Napoca. Since its first edition in 2015, the festival has consistently delivered a spectacular scale, with gigantic staging, lighting and production to echo the size and stature of the lineup, packed with world-renowned EDM talent.
, trance, house, techno, drum and bass, and even pop and hip-hop”
King Roger is a former World No.1
Former Chilean player Fernando Gonzalez with the crazy forehand is not just anyone. 5th in the world in 2007, he won 11 titles on the circuit and was a finalist at the Australian Open the same year.
Asked by our colleagues from Clay, Fernando of course mentioned the future return of Roger Federer to the courts, a player he knows very well for having faced him 13 times, for only one small victory. “I’m sure he’ll want to say goodbye at some point, but if he comes back I think he’ll be looking for something important.
I don’t know how he will be for a match in five sets, but to play three, I’m sure he still has the potential to get there. Roger knows his body very well, more than any young tennis player. The problem with a physical concern is particularly noticeable on the restart, when it is time to chain matches.
I don’t know if he will win a Grand Slam again, but in three-set tournaments I think he can do something interesting.”
