Roger Federer: 'I feel like I had to be a bit older to do this'

With the successful completion of the 2021 Mutua Madrid Open, fans will witness some exciting tennis at the 2021 Italian Open. The main event of the tournament will kick off tomorrow, but some big names in the sport will miss out on the Rome Masters this year, including Roger Federer and Venus Williams.

Roger Federer Roger Federer made his fans happy by returning to the court at the 2021 Qatar Open. He also announced that he will play in the 2021 French Open and the 2021 ATP Geneva Open. However, Federer has chosen not to participate in the 2021 Rome Masters while cutting his schedule for optimal fitness for the match.

Although the Swiss master has played four finals at the Italian Open, he has not won a single title there. It is one of the tournaments Federer has failed to conquer in his prolific career thus far and that will not change this year.

Stan Wawrinka Stan Wawrinka, 36, will not play at the 2021 Italian Open. He last played at the 2021 Qatar Open, where he was eliminated in the first round. After that, he suffered an unfortunate injury and has yet to return to the court.

Wawrinka is one of those few players who has beaten Rafael Nadal at the Italian Open. He even finished runner-up in the tournament in 2008 after losing to Novak Djokovic in the final. Andy Murray Although Andy Murray is training in Rome at the moment, he will not play in the Italian Open this year.

He recently connected with Djokovic to prepare for the upcoming 2021 Roland Garros. Murray has not played professional tennis since the 2021 ATP Rotterdam Open. There are even chances that he will start the 2021 French Open as qualified.

Roger Federer on his decision to promote tourism

In one of his recent media interactions with the New York Times, Roger Federer opened up about his work for Switzerland Tourism. "Some of the most spectacular hiking trails I like are by Gstaad in these Bernese Alps.

It's not so brutally up and down, it's more of an even slope, which is great for hiking. The same goes for Appenzell, which is a very nice place that's not so famous," Roger Federer said. "When I was injured in 2016 I spent a lot of time on the hiking trails in Graubunden, where I live now."

He also insisted that he wanted to give back to people from all sectors that had been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. "I feel like I had to be a bit older to do this, at around 40 years old, I've been to maybe 60 countries.

I live in Switzerland now and I will continue to live in Switzerland. I know everyone's hurting right now, it's a good time for me to be able to step up to the plate and help the country as we're hopefully going to open again," Federer said.
