Roger Federer said he received the COVID-19 vaccine. The Swiss admitted having received Pfizer doses and HE commented: "I am happy to have been able to do this with all the trips I do. I don't want to harm someone else.
We must be careful and be very careful."
"I did it mainly for others"
Roger said it during an interview with Swiss TV Leman Bleu, confirming that he fully understood the true meaning of mass vaccination. As part of the same interview, Federer also talks about the possibility that the Tokyo Olympics will not see the start as feared by the organization.
He said: "Winning a medal for Switzerland would make me very proud. Although the fear of a cancellation due to the pandemic weighs on the morale of the players. Athletes need a decision as to whether the Games will be played or not.
In any case, we will discuss it at home. We talk a lot about it with Mirka." From tomorrow Roger will finally be back on the court after more than a year of stoppage in the ATP 250 in Geneva, a place very dear to him: "Now my priority is my return to the court.
I love playing in Geneva and my children have a lot of fun here because they see friends they haven't seen in a long time." Federer, we know, is perhaps the best tennis player in history and one of the most influential characters on the world scene, but for Switzerland he represents a real national hero, so much so that he was recently appointed ambassador of tourism (here his video Don Robert DeNiro).
The figure of him can be crucial at a time when flights and travel are limited by the pandemic. "Sometimes it is a bit exaggerated, but at the same time I find it fantastic. It is very nice because I realize that I am very respected by the Swiss and therefore I am happy to give back as much as possible to Switzerland in my new role."
