In a recent interview, former tennis player Barbara Schett expressed her point of view on Roger Federer's come back: "Everyone can't wait to see him play again. The current perplexity concerns whether he will also play the singles in Laver Cup or just the double.
He is not that young anymore and has been out for a long time. His last match dates back to more than a year ago, you can train as much as you want but nothing compares to a professional game of the highest level, which subjects your body to a very high adrenaline rush.
I am always worried that one day he will say 'enough' I would like to play Wimbledon and then retire, but it is a personal decision."
Schett also on Djokovic and Nadal
The Austrian commentator of Eurosport also made some considerations on the next US Open, in particular on the almost certain exclusion of Novak Djokovic: "I think he should have played.
We are in a time when everyone is relaxed. Even in Australia you can already enter without being vaccinated. I would have liked to see him, it's really sad. Rafael Nadal? In the first or second round we will have a good idea of how he is.
He could win the 23rd Grand Slam and he is aware of everything. He will come to New York with the desire to win and if anyone can do it, it is him, even if he has only played one game before the tournament." It is the return that many fans, enthusiasts and professionals have been waiting for for some time.
The countdown has already begun to see Roger Federer on the field who, after a long injury and a rehabilitation that allowed him to return in good physical condition, is ready to amaze everyone again at the age of 41 year-old.
In less than a month the Swiss will participate in the 2022 edition of the Laver Cup together with the Europe team led by Bjorn Borg, who can also boast players of the caliber of Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and Andy Murray in the team.
