Roger Federer was the protagonist during the first day of the Laver Cup, played at the Rogers Arena in Vancouver. The Swiss champion was keen to delight fans with an interview, together with Jim Courier who asked him some interesting questions.
The former player naturally recalled the moment of his retirement from tennis, just last year during this event he created: "I promised myself that I would never be a stranger on the circuit, that I would remain close to tennis once I I was withdrawn.
I don't claim to be always travelling, but having been to Halle, Wimbledon and now here makes me very happy. I have many friends around the world that I miss. Obviously I miss tennis and competition, especially the incredible moments of the big matches, the atmosphere that can be felt in the most important stadiums in the world.
Without a doubt, I would go back to doing everything I did."
The words of Roger Federer
Roger then talked about what he has mainly done in this year: "I have become a professional driver and a man expert in logistics. The girls are teenagers and it is impressive to see what they have become.
It is a difficult time, but they are all phases and you have to try I have had a very positive year, enjoying my family and with many exciting commitments and projects through the Foundation and my sponsors." Federer also did not rule out a sensational possibility for the next editions of the Laver Cup, namely that of becoming the captain of the Europe team: "All I remember about my farewell to London are positive things." There was so much applause for the winner of 20 Grand Slam titles during his long career, and he naturally thanked all the spectators present for their presence and the great affection he received.
“It was beautiful, it was perfect, it was emotional”
