Wimbledon returns after a year of absence and does so by returning the memory of what happened in 2019, in that magnificent final that we lived between Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic, a duel decided by details and where the Serbian raised two match points to lift the title in the All England Tennis Club.
The Swiss, just days after turning 40, returns to his fetish tournament and again, he will be one of the candidates for the title, despite not coming at his best and that happens because there is something in his tennis that makes him the grass suits him like a glove.
Years may pass, Roger continues to add figures at his age, and the Swiss will continue to be one of the main candidates to win at Wimbledon. Eight are the titles that the Swiss has raised in the Cathedral of tennis. He is the highest historical winner of the tournament and that does not come by chance.
There are several keys in his game that make Federer do so much damage when he plays on grass.
Two of tennis’s greatest assets are Serena Williams and Roger Federer
Recently, Roger Federer voiced his opinion on similarities with American star Serena Williams.
Along this beautiful journey, they have come across various obstacles but they have somehow found a way to overcome these barriers. Having started their careers as teenagers, they have entered parenthood and the desire to compete for the biggest honors still remains high.
The 39-year-old player spoke on this topic and stated, “I mean you would think that we found ways to keep ourselves happy, motivated, and entertained and not let the negatives dominate our daily struggles and things we’re going through like any other tennis player.
How we manage our day-to-day stuff with the family is very important because if you have a family it’s easier to walk away from it all”. The former World No. 1 further added, “Everybody goes through ups and downs.
Our careers have been mainly ups for a long time and maybe it’s arguably easier to stay happy and motivated but at the same time only the best is good enough for us and it puts a lot of pressure on ourselves. Truthfully, I don’t think my goal was to play till 39 or 40.
It was maybe till 35 I was thinking”. The Wimbledon Championships 2021 begins on Monday the 28th of June and will end on Sunday the 11th of July. The Basel-born player and the American veteran will headline the event. All eyes will be on the two legends.
