John McEnroe: "Roger Federer's elegance is unmatched"

During an inyterview with Eurosport, John McEnroe analyzed Roger Federer's prospects in detail. John McEnroe said: Roger Federer is missed, especially during the big events on the Tour. Roger is the most elegant player I've ever seen on a tennis court.

As a fan of this sport, I would like to see him on tour again for a while." The American is aware of the difficulties of the Swiss: "As for the future, we must not forget that Federer is 40 years old. He has undergone several surgeries in the last two years, the wear is a lot and it will not be easy to get back to high levels.

I thought the same thing when he was absent for six months in 2016, immediately after losing to Milos Raonic at Wimbledon. Most everyone thought Roger was done for, but he came back and won the Australian Open. He has already shown that he can accomplish formidable feats, but this would be the most incredible of all.

Andy Murray's parable made us understand how difficult it is to find the best condition."
