'Roger Federer is a huge fan of professional wrestling', says ATP ace

Roger Federer hasn't had injuries for most of his career, but that trend has changed dramatically over the past couple of years. A serious knee problem has kept the Swiss phenomenon away from the fields for a very long time, allowing him to play just 13 official matches in 2021.

The former world number 1 has collected nine wins and four losses, a far too modest toll for a legend. of its caliber. The 20-time Grand Slam champion reached the quarterfinals at Wimbledon, but the clear defeat to Hubert Hurkacz at Center Court (complete with bagels in the third set) made everyone realize that something was wrong.

A few weeks later, the 40-year-old from Basel announced that he had to operate on his right knee for the third time. The King hopes to return to action at the end of summer or early autumn, perhaps at the Laver Cup which will be staged in London.

In a recent conversation on the Tennis Channel, ATP # 23 John Isner crowned Federer as the GOAT regardless of the stats.

"Logically, I think it's Roger Federer, he's the GOAT, you know, take his brain a little bit.

We actually have a lot in common to talk about, professional wrestling, he's a fan of that, not many people know that." While Isner called Federer the GOAT, Kyrgios may not quite agree with him. The 26-year-old said he believes that the Swiss will no longer be considered in the debate if Nadal gets to 22 slam titles.

He also added that Federer has a negative record against Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic. "If Nadal wins 22 I think he's got the crown," Nick Kyrgios said. "Nah, he's (Federer), I mean quote this, Roger's done for me in the GOAT talks boys, he's done.

I thought about it, he's got a losing record against both of them, like really bad records." Roger Federer is one of the most popular tennis players to ever grace this planet. He has a huge fan following, to say the least.

Even though he has been out of the circuit for quite some time owing to his injuries, he recently opened up about the unique highlights of the last year. What was more interesting is that he opened up about how his ongoing rehabilitation.

All his fans have been eagerly awaiting his return. “My experience in Doha illustrated to me that my journey as an elite athlete isn’t over yet. The progress I make every day strengthens my belief that I will be healthy and strong enough to return to the tennis court at the highest level,” he said.
