Lindsey Vonn: "Roger Federer will always be the best"

Lindsey Vonn is considered one of the greatest woman skiers of all time. In the past, she has already repeatedly expressed her admiration for a champion like Roger Federer, who is three years older than her. Retired from competitions in 2019, the American skier has won four World Cups and an Olympic gold medal.

She recently returned to praise the former Swiss world number one, as revealed in an interview published by EssentiallySports.

Vonn praises Roger Federer's game and personality

"He wants to play as long as possible," said Vonn about Roger.

"The same as I did with the ski. At a certain point, however, the body might tell you: Enough, now it's too much. I don't know where Roger is in this process right now. He is truly a tennis lover, which is why he has been playing for so long.

It gives a lot to this discipline. Sport will never be the same without him." Despite the passing of time and the date of retirement that consequently gets closer and closer, Vonn will never cease to remain an admirer of the Basel champion: "I was and will be a Roger fan until the end.

For me, he will always be the strongest of all time. Play with so much grace, with such perfect balance. It is spectacular for the fans and for all people. Hardly anyone can do better than Roger." Speaking of the Grand Slam record, the former American athlete said: "If Rafael Nadal will break Roger Federer's record, some will say he is the strongest ever.

For others, number one will still be Roger. These discussions will never end." The former Swiss world number one will come back to the court in a few weeks for the Australian Open, where he reached the semifinal last year, beaten by Novak Djokovic.

The entire world of tennis is looking forward to hearing about the physical condition of the eight-time Wimbledon winner, who has been away from the courts for twelve months. Meanwhile the iconic RF brand come back to his owner ad founder Roger Federer.
