In a video posted on Instagram, Patrick Mouratoglou analyzed one of the trademarks of Roger Federer's tennis, his slice backhand. Mouratoglou explained: "Roger Federer played the backhand in slices in an incredible way. He has always had the ability to put his opponents in awkward positions.
He used to play it low and short, depriving the other players of any choice. They had to enter the court and go to the net." During a long interview with the Swiss weekly Coopzeitung, Roger talked about his future: "I knew that the knee operation and subsequent recovery would take a long time, but I had no other choice.
After Wimbledon, I realized I couldn't continue like that. I hope to return to the Laver Cup in September. What if my family will travel with me around the world? I would like to have this problem, I mean really. It would mean that everything is going for the best."
Roger Federer's come back
Roger Federer misses the fans and other players a lot.
Recently, Stefanos Tsitsipas admitted that he misses the King in the various tournaments around the circuit. The last two seasons have been a real ordeal for the Swiss phenomenon, forced to deal with a serious injury to his right knee.
Suffice it to say that the 20-time Grand Slam champion played just 13 official matches last year, racking up nine wins and four losses. The 40-year-old from Basel went all the way to the quarterfinals on the grass at Wimbledon, but could do nothing against a wild Hubert Hurkacz.
The Pole has taken off the whim of feeding him a bagel on the Center Court, demonstrating a Federer far from top form. A few weeks later, the Master announced that he had suffered a relapse and had to operate on his knee for the third time in 18 months.
The 20-time Grand Slam champion will return to the Laver Cup, before competing in the ATP in Basel. We also Mouratoglou has become the new coach of Simona Halep.
