The Swiss tennis player and active legend of white sport, Roger Federer, confessed that he is not training at the moment, because he does not see a reason to do so, in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“The truth is that I am not training because, to be honest, I don’t see a reason to do it right now. I am physically well and I think it will be a long time before we compete again. It is important for me to take a good rest now, I do not miss tennis as much, although when we are close to returning and I have a goal to train, I will be super motivated, “he said in an Instagram Live broadcast.
Federer valued inactivity in professional tennis, because it has allowed him to support his family, something he has not done for almost four years.
“Since I had surgery in 2016, I have not spent five weeks in a row at home. It has been a great time for the whole family, we have been lucky to be healthy and our family and friends are well. Sometimes we go crazy being so much time together at home, but that’s normal, “he added with a laugh.
The Swiss said he simply does not see a scenario of playing without fans, something that is likely for all professional sports, after measures of social distancing can be maintained when the new coronavirus outbreak goes down worldwide.
“I can’t imagine competing in an empty stadium, I don’t succeed and I hope it never happens. As much as when we train there are no people, competing is very different. It is clear that the possibility is feasible, but I think we could wait for the appropriate moment to return in the best conditions, with at least a third of the stadium full or half inning, “he said.
