Roger Federer said that he had received the Covid-19 vaccine. The Swiss admitted to receiving doses of Pfizer and commented: "I'm glad I was able to do it on all the trips I do. I don't want to hurt anyone else. We must be very careful.
I did it mainly for others, "said the 20-time Grand Slam champion. The Swiss admitted during an interview with Swiss television Leman Bleu, confirming that he fully understood the true meaning of mass vaccination. As part of the same interview, Federer also spoke of the possibility that the Tokyo Olympics will not see the start as the organization feared: "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 on whether the Games will be played or not. In any case, we will discuss it at home. We talk about it a lot with Mirka " Starting tomorrow Roger will finally return to the field after more than a year of unemployment at the ATP 250 in Geneva, a place very dear to him: "Now my priority is my return to the circuit.
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 represents a true national hero, so much so that he was recently appointed ambassador for tourism.
Roger Federer hasn't lost any of his tennis skills
Roger Federer will be playing behind closed doors at the 2021 Geneva Open, where he is the top seed. Speaking to RTS on Friday, Federer mentioned that he has had fun following the proceedings of the tour since its resumption in August last year, even with several results being on expected lines.
"Here, I must first look at the draw, which will necessarily be complicated," Federer said. "But to be honest, it is important to first see how the body and the mind will react, because I believe that my tennis is still there."
The 39-year-old, however, is now keen to see how his training and fitness work respond to the tour matches. "My training sessions went off without problems," Federer revealed. "I played a lot the last few weeks after the fitness program.
It's nice to do what I can do best again. I'm looking forward to seeing what it will be like in a game now."
