It will be strange to be a whole year without seeing Roger Federer on the court, although right now I think everyone would sign it. The Swiss continues with his recovery from his double knee operation, which only allowed him to play one tournament this season, the Australian Open. Its return would not take place until next January, possibly in Melbourne, although the coronavirus is still present out there and many people have doubts that the 2021 calendar can start without problems. At the moment, the one from Basel reviewed its news yesterday during the presentation of his new line of sneakers, ‘The Roger‘.

– Objective 2021

“After the operations it was an important moment to know if I wanted to continue or not, it is a long way back. The problem was that I had two knee surgeries, so since the last time I was in that stage of maximum relaxation, rehabilitation and walking on crutches. I took it very calmly, step by step. I feel much better now than I did a few months ago, but I’m still not at the level necessary to play tennis again. The goal really is to be ready for next season, at the moment it’s great to be able to spend so much time at home. ”

– More time at home

“It was nice to be in Switzerland for so long. I’ve been traveling around the world for the past 25 years, so it’s not something I’ve been able to do very often. The maximum time he had spent at home had been about five or six weeks, at most. Now I have been in Switzerland for about four or five months, but I really enjoy it, the quality of life here is excellent. We also had very good weather, so we were able to make family plans. ”

– Positive mindset above all

“I am a happy and very grateful person. I have four healthy children and a wonderful woman. The truth is, I have hundreds of reasons to be happy. Why shouldn’t you show me like this? In the moments when things did not go so well for me on the sports field, I always had the strength to stay positive, I was always able to focus on the next game. ”
