The 2021 Laver Cup has started and fans are witnessing some incredible tennis in the tournament right now. Interestingly, they were able to see the co-founder of the tennis event, Roger Federer, even on the second day of the 2021 Laver Cup and were therefore very excited after that.
Roger Federer and Andy Roddick had a discussion before play started on the second day of the 2021 Laver Cup. Surprisingly, they talked about how the two teams would have looked if the Laver Cup had been there in 2009. The Europe team would have been almost an undefeated team if the Laver Cup had taken place in 2009.
They would have Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Andy Murray on their team. On the other hand, Team World wouldn't have been that strong back then. It is for this reason that Roddick agreed with this statement by the Swiss master.
Roger Federer v Andy Roddick: head to head. Although Federer and Roddick are great friends now, there was a time when the two were bitter enemies on the court.
Federer wants to play at some point next year
Roger Federer is currently attending the Laver Cup in Boston, where he has received an enormous amount of fanfare.
While being interviewed by Jim Courier on Day 2 of the tournament, the Swiss was asked to provide an update on his comeback plans and physical condition. "I just got to take it step by step," Federer said. "I got to first walk again properly, run properly, then do the side steps and all the agility work and then eventually going to be back on the tennis court.
But it's going to take me a few more months, and then we'll see how things are at some point next year. I gotta take my time, I don't want to rush into anything at this point," Federer said. "This is also for my life you know, I want to make sure I can do everything I want to do later on.
There's no rush with anything. So I'm actually in a really good place. I think the worst is behind me." The 8 time Wimbledon champion, Roger Federer struggled at Wimbledon. The Swiss reached in the quarter-finals of the competition with some hardships on his way.
In the quarter-finals, Hubert Hurkacz of Poland thrashed the Swiss ending his run in straight sets. The Polish destroyed Federer in the last set with a score of 6-0. This was just the second time Federer had lost with 6-0 in the 21st century.
