Considered the best tennis player of all time, Roger Federer built a huge career thanks to his magical hands and that, over the years, he remained without suffering major injuries that moved him away from the professional circuit.
But now, the present is different. After reaching the semifinals of the Australian Open, the first Grand Slam of the season, the Swiss published a bad news through his social networks. This Wednesday, in Switzerland, an arthroscopy was performed on his right knee.
His main goal will be to step on the grass again and arrive in good physical condition to face the Grand Slam that he already won eight times and in which he will seek to continue to increase his legend. During a long interview with BBC, Simon Parker asked Roger about an unexplored part of himself that he might like to pursue after retirement.
“There’s a lot of things that I can’t do as well. That’s also one of the big beauties of what’s coming after. Actually, I’ll have the time to learn a new instrument, maybe another language, or maybe go visit some places I’ve never been to and learn from that.
I’m a good tennis player doesn’t mean I’m good at everything else. And I think it’s also quite exciting to start somewhere from scratch again. By far not a good chef or good cook by any stretch, so I’ll look to learn that as well. That can be done altogether with my children because I know they love their cooking” - Federer said.
