Federer about the Next season
During an interview Roger Federer said: "It has been very nice for me to spend the whole period of the Lockdown in Switzerland.
For the past 25 years I have traveled a lot, I have never spent two consecutive months at home. Now we have been in Switzerland for four or five months in a row and basically we had fun. The quality of life here is extraordinary, we have summer now and many people spend time outside, us too.
However, I had to go one step at a time, going slowly with rehabilitation and this slow recovery. Now I already feel better, I am not yet at a level that I can play tennis, but I am confident that I am 100% ahead of next season."
About 2020 the Swiss Maestro said: "It has been a very special year so far. My last match was in South Africa with Rafael Nadal for my Foundation. I played the Australian Open, then I underwent two knee surgeries. They canceled Wimbledon, the Olympics, then Covid, the quarantine, the travel ban.
So many things." Federer also talked about Wimbledon anf its cancellation: "I miss Wimbledon. Right now I would love to be there. I would like to play on Center Court for a seat in the second week of the tournament.
One of my great goals is precisely to play it next year. And that's why I train and work daily. Now I'm going to face a block of twenty weeks of physical preparation. Wimbledon has given me everything," he said. Regarding rehabilitation and his career Federer said: "It was a very important moment for me.
With the coronavirus, the two operations, I thought if it was appropriate or not to continue. It seems easy, but I can assure you that I will return to certain levels it takes a very long way. With recovery you have to be patient and take all the time you need to think.
For three months I have not even seen my parents. We have been very attentive to the provisions of the government. It was very important to be so and even today it must be so : you have to be careful," said Roger Federer.
