During an interview with Tennis365, Andrew Castle talked extensively about the Big 3, especially Roger Federer and his back on the court, expected after Wimbledon. Castle said: "I am happy that Daniil Medvedev has reached the top position of the ATP ranking, but I hope the Big 3 still have something to give before retiring.
Rafael Nadal has started 2022 in an incredible way, even winning the Australian Open. We don't know which tournaments Novak Djokovic will be able to play due to the vaccination issue, but I'm sure his motivation will skyrocket in the coming months.
I would have liked to see his face when Nadal took his 21st Grand Slam in Melbourne. As for Roger Federer, I hope he can go back to Wimbledon and give himself one last ride." Djokovic will be forced to miss the Indian Wells and Miami Masters 1000: "As of today I can't enter the United States, so I'm not able to play.
Let's see what happens. I mean, maybe things will change in the next few weeks. At the same time, I would like to congratulate Daniil Medvedev."
Roger Federer's come back
Roger Federer has walked away from the circuit for the past two years.
A serious knee problem kept the Swiss in the pits for a very long time, forcing him to watch helplessly as Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic triumphs. The King played a pittance of 13 official matches in 2021, racking up nine wins and four losses.
The round of 16 at Roland Garros and the quarterfinals at Wimbledon were his best seasonal results, but that's far too thin a booty for a legend of his caliber. A few weeks after the Championships, the former world number 1 announced that he would have to operate on his knee for the third time.
There is no precise date for the return of the Swiss, who is training in the gym for the moment. In a recent interview, Severin Luthi admitted that the Maestro's presence at Wimbledon this year is very unlikely. The 20-time Grand Slam champion is expected to compete in the Laver Cup in London, but it's too early to say no.
