Roger Federer: My main focus is on how to make my comeback in tennis

20-time Grand Slam champion Roger Federer says his main focus right now is on making a comeback and admits he sometimes thinks about how will his life look after his career is over. Federer, 40, hasn't really played much tennis over the last two and a half years due to knee problems.

After undergoing two knee surgeries in 2020, Federer made a comeback to tennis last year. Unfortunately, Federer appeared in just five tournaments before he was forced to undergo another knee surgery. Federer, who will turn 41 next month, is doing well in his rehab and he is expected to return to action at the Laver Cup in September.

“Time will tell how I want to deal with this, how often I keep looking for interest,” Federer told Het Parool, per Tennishead. “I think about that now sometimes, but not often.

My main focus is on how to make my comeback in tennis. I work hard on that and I think about it every day. What feeling you get and how you react after such applause and standing ovation, I still don’t know that in advance.

Novak [Djokovic] also said that: a lot of us are nervous before such a parade. We don’t do this every day either, we never get used to it. It remains uncertain, while all you have to do is walk a bit and say a few words.

And I was quite emotional, although not everyone has seen that. You never tire of such attention. That is why it is also difficult for many athletes to stop. Or why they keep playing demonstration matches. Because they love to perform.

Because in the end we are not just tennis players, but also performers, entertainers”. Federer has been confirmed for one ATP event so far - Basel, which takes place in October.
