20-time Grand Slam champion Roger Federer showed his table tennis skills in an Instagram Reel. Federer, who turned 40 on August 8, hasn't played since Wimbledon due to a knee issue. Federer took some time away to relax and spend some time with his family.
"I was on vacation. I haven’t done anything for a while, because of the knee.
I had to let everything sink in after Wimbledon. This week I’m still meeting my doctors and my team and then we’ll see how it should go on. At the moment, everything is still a little uncertain," Federer told BLICK a few days ago.
During his interview with BLICK, Federer revealed what he wants to do in retirement. "I want to attend the NBA, NHL and NFL finals. Go to Tokyo. Visit the most beautiful parks in the world with my children. Learn to play saxophone.
Ski, go snowboarding, scuba diving," Federer said, per We Are Tennis.
Federer had a good Wimbledon campaign
"To some extent it's nice to see that the work I put in paid off [and] that I'm able to play at this level with best-of-five sets,” Federer said.
“When you're young, you don't ask yourself the question. But when you're me, with the year I had, it's all question marks all over the place. You have to prove it again to yourself that you can actually do it.
I was willing to take losses for the sake of information, just to be out there, [to] get the body in shape forhopefully when Wimbledon comes around,m that I can actually wake up in the morning and feel all right, that I can still go out and play five sets.
“I feel that way, so it's very rewarding and it's a good feeling. Now we'll see how much more I’ve got left in the tank. Clearly [it] was important again to win in straight sets. [I am] looking forward to the next round."
