A spectacular appearance at the Laver Cup in Boston, Swiss Roger Federer surprised almost everyone in attendance at the TD Garden gymnasium over the weekend to closely follow the event. Even after recovering from a third knee surgery, he himself admitted that he did not plan to travel to the United States to watch the tournament up close, which ended on Sunday.
The 40-year-old tennis player said, “I wasn’t sure I could come. We finally thought it would be really cool and special to be able to do this without anyone knowing. Good stuff and enjoy this weekend.”
“I saw an incredible level of tennis in this tournament, some great games, and that’s amazing for this competition,” Federer said. Federer showed a mix of optimism and caution while analyzing his recovery.
The Swiss revealed to be dissatisfied with his physical performance this year and therefore decided to work again. “We made a very difficult decision because I had knee surgery last year, but I was really unhappy with the way things went at Wimbledon, where I was far from my best physical level,” Federer said.
Then came the new surgery and ongoing recovery, to try to restart her career in 2022. “Now I have to walk step by step, first I have to walk correctly, then run, do side steps, and work on my agility. Then I’ll start training on the tennis court, but that will take a few months Only then will we see how things go next year.”
“I have to take my time, I don’t want to create shortcuts or anything like that. I want to make sure I can do everything I want and there’s no rush. In fact, I’m in a very good place, The worst of this injury is over.” Ended optimistic Federer.
