'No matter who wins the Grand Slam race, Roger Federer is...', says ATP ace

Roger Federer's path continues in the Wimbledon tournament with the Swiss tennis player who enters the third round of the London tournament without particular problems thanks to the victory over Richard Gasquet. Very nice match with the two expert athletes who showed off some pieces of their own repertoire, winning applause from the audience.

Thanks to this victory Roger Federer has qualified and against the British Cameron Norrie will have the chance to qualify for the second week of the tournament, his first priority goal for this phase of the tournament. At the press conference, the Swiss tennis player appeared quite radiantly happy for his condition and for a victory he arrived without wasting too much energy.

Despite this Federer is not currently considered among the favorites of the tournament, both himself and the insiders are curious to see him in front of more convincing opponents and Cameron Norrie himself represents an insidious test bed, a tennis player who plays solid tennis on all surfaces and that can annoy all workers.

The historical tournament that was canceled last year due to the pandemic has made a worthy comeback this year. Having to play games in unimaginable conditions, players all around the world have suffered ‘behind closed doors.’

Otte pays tribute to Roger Federer

Oscar Otte recently spoke to tennis MAGAZIN, where he claimed that Roger Federer is the greatest player of all time.

Otte believes that Federer's flawless demeanor - both on and off the court - puts him ahead of Novak Djokovic, who has been at the center of a fair few controversies of late. "No matter who wins the (Grand Slam) race, from my point of view, Federer is the greatest," Otte said.

"Unfortunately, I am not objective. I admire him for his demeanor. He is the figurehead for tennis. He has built a flawless image and not, like Djokovic, caused scandals." Roger Federer and Oscar Otte have met just once on the tour - in the second round of Roland Garros 2019.

"It was difficult to play against him (Federer, at Roland Garros), of course, but I played well," Otte said. "But a lot of new things came up to me. For example, it was the first time I had real interviews. That's why I was exhausted for a few days after the match," Otte said.

"(But) it was a cool experience. The only stupid thing was that I got injured again afterwards and couldn’t take this positive swing with me."
