Roger Federer should return to pick up the tennis racket in January. The news is such given that the former number one in the ATP rankings has not played for a year and not only for the pandemic. The knee operations took a long time and resulted in a long stop.
King Roger is still ready to do battle and despite his age, 40 in August, he does not hide his goals which have the shape of the Olympic rings. During a live Instagram session, with his friend Uniqlo testimonial and tennis player Kei Nishikori he talked about the goals for next season.
The Olympic gold medal is in the lead, one of the few awards missing from the Basel champion who got gold "only" in the double tournament in Beijing 2008. “It was a shock to all of us that Wimbledon announced that it would not be held due to the pandemic, and shortly after the Tokyo Olympics were postponed.
I hope that the Olympics can be held in Tokyo next year, it is one of my great goals - he explained during the broadcast -. I really hope to be in Tokyo for this ”. No mention, and the fans thank the retirement: Federer has always reiterated that as long as he has fun and is able to play, he will not stop.
