'Roger Federer doesn’t question it', says French ace

Roger Federer had deluded the fans and fans who were waiting for him in Australia. A flame that was rekindled after a few weeks ago he rejected the idea of returning for the first Slam of the season. The fault is always of the right knee operated twice and not yet perfectly recovered.

But Roger Federer, until yesterday already registered in the ATP Cup, the tournament for nations starting in Melbourne from 2 to 5 February, starter of the Australian Open, has formalized his absence from the competition and also from the opening Grand Slam of 2021.

official communication came from Toni Godsick, manager and partner of the former number 1 in the world. Recently, Alize Lim invited former World No.6 Gilles Simon on the show Major Talk, where the latter talked about the epic 2019 Wimbledon final.

Simon finds it amusing whenever he hears people saying Federer should have served and volleyed when he had two match points.

Simon defends Roger Federer

“I heard it so many times, ‘Why didn’t he serve and volley against Novak when he had his two match points?’ We’re not going to start questioning Roger Federer’s choices in the important moments, are we? If anyone knows, it’s him…Federer doesn’t question it.

He played his game. He’s won a lot of Slams by doing this”. said Gilles Simon, during the interview. However, it wasn’t the first time Novak Djokovic saved match points off Federer. During the 2010 and 2011 US Open semifinal, Federer had two match points against Djokovic on both occasions but failed to convert on either occasion.

In hindsight, if Federer had won the match, he would have clinched his 21st Grand slam title and his arch-rival Rafael Nadal would still have some catching up to do. The first Grand Slam of 2021 is just around the corner and nothing gets more exciting than this.

However, on the sidelines, mimicry artist Elliot Loney is making headlines with his recent-most impersonations video. The video includes Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, Jim Courier, Bernard Tomic, and Nick Kyrgios, and has got everyone holding their belly.

The 6-time year-end World No. 1 Djokovic has only one week left to begin his 2021 season. He will lead Team Serbia in the ATP Cup 2021 as the defending champions of the tournament. His singles’ season will start as the reigning champion of the ‘Happy Slam’.

Given his thirst to cross Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer in the GOAT race, the AO title will be important for him. Having said that, the next-generations players are also in great shape to be Grand Slam winners. Now, only time will us who wears the Australian crown this year.
