Robert, father of former tennis icon Roger Federer, revealed in a recent interview the changes due to his son's retirement from tennis last year at the 2022 Laver Cup. Furthermore, Robert said how he and his family like to go to the mountains with grandchildren.

In an interview with Schweizer he explained: "We travel a lot less than before, I miss that. Most important thing. We like to go to the mountains with the grandchildren. To the Appenzellerland or to Valbella."

Roger Federer's former coach, Peter Lundgren, has his foot amputated

Peter Lundgren, former coach of tennis players such as Roger Federer, Stan Wawrinka, Marcelo Rios, Marat Safin, Grigor Dimitrov and many other stars, has had his left foot amputated.

The news emerged when the 58-year-old Swede shared a photo on social media from his hospital bed. In the post, the 58-year-old revealed that he recently had his limb amputated due to an infection. Just a month ago, Peter himself declared that his ankle fracture would not heal due to the type 2 diabetes he suffers from.

"I wanted to give an update on my foot. Unfortunately, 10 days ago I had to amputate my foot and a little more, due to the infection I had and the broken ankle that hasn't healed due to my type 2 diabetes , who has bad circulation.

But now I feel well again and will start rehabilitation soon," he revealed. As mentioned, Lundgren has trained many champions who have made the history of this sport. The brightest star is undoubtedly Federer, who led him from 2000 to 2003, a period in which the Swiss won his first Grand Slam title at Wimbledon.

With him the Basel tennis player won his first Master Series at the 2002 Hamburg Masters, held on clay courts. Lundgren, who was also a professional tennis player, worked with the Russian Marat Safin, guiding him to win the 2005 Australian Open.

The coaching experience has extended to other important players, including Stan Wawrinka, Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov and Chilean Marcelo Rios. Under his guidance, Rios reached the top 10 in the rankings during their time together.

In March he also began collaborating with the young star Dominic Stricker, who under his teachings had given the first encouraging results by playing an excellent tournament at the US Open
