Roger Federer: "I've always kept my feet on the ground"

In a recent interview with Credit Suisse, Roger Federer revealed how his life has changed over the past two years. The Swiss Maestro did not play after Wimbledon 2021. He said: "The past two years have allowed me to get a taste of what my life will be like after retiring from tennis.

I tried to stay as busy as possible, I didn't want to let go. I am happy to have spent a lot of time with my children, who are going through an important phase in their life." Federer has never felt predestined: “I come from a very normal environment, where sport has always been lived in a healthy way.

I would have been happy even if I had only won one ATP title and if I had entered the Top 100. I didn't have who knows what dreams, I have to be honest. Over time, I have redefined my goals. Despite all the successes I have achieved, I have always remained with my feet on the ground."

Roger's season and hope for mid-season 2022

Thanks to the triumph at the Australian Open, Rafael Nadal overtook Federer and Djokovic to reach 21 Slams.

Roger Federer has been off the circuit for a long time for the past two years. The former world number 1 has had to deal with a serious right knee injury, which has reduced his appearances on the pitch to a flicker. Suffice it to say that the Swiss played just 13 official matches in 2021, with a record of nine wins and four losses.

The 40-year-old from Basel reached the quarter-finals at Wimbledon, where he was clearly defeated by Hubert Hurkacz on Center Court. The Pole took away the satisfaction of trimming a bagel to the 20-time Grand Slam champion in the third set.

A few weeks after the Championships, the King announced that he had suffered a knee relapse and had to operate for the third time in 18 months. Federer hopes to be back in action this summer, but his presence at Wimbledon is highly questionable. Meanwhile, the Maestro had to salute the Top 10 for the first time since 2017.
