Roger Federer recently spoke to ESPN to make some considerations on the most current and prominent issues in the world of tennis. The Swiss champion first focused on the farewell ceremony on the central court of Wimbledon to pay tribute to Andy Murray, explaining the reason for his absence at the end of the match along with the other legends of the racket.

The 42-year-old made it clear that he had planned the visit for the Scotsman’s singles match, but he never made it to the main draw. At that point, the native of Basel stressed that he had the opportunity to chat with the athlete from Glasgow before the challenge in the locker room, before taking off and leaving the club due to unavoidable commitments made earlier.

The winner of 20 Grand Slam titles did not hide the chance to return to London to attend the mixed doubles between Murray and Emma Raducanu.

"Carlos has already achieved impressive success, but Sinner has had incredible progress in recent years. It is important for them to have had the opportunity to face Nole, it will positively contribute to their maturity.

I hope they will continue to improve and challenge each other. We are faced with a great rivalry", commented the Swiss, also in the interview with ESPN.

In a recent interview during Wimbledon, Grigor Dimitrov praised Federer: “I think Roger was the hardest opponent for me on all surfaces.

Roger was always able to take away my time. I remember when I played against him here it was like this at every point. This makes you feel very uncomfortable on the court, forces you to make shots that you should not do, completely takes you away from your game.”
