Mats Wilander talked about Roger Federer In an interview with the Tennis Net site (and translated into Spanish by Punto de Break): the Swiss’s chances in Tokyo and the Laver Cup were the main topics.
“During these last three or four years I have said that the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games was going to mark the end of his sports career. Due to the coronavirus, the Games were postponed one year later and I think it has been very good for the tennis player Swiss. I think Roger has a chance to get the gold medal. He can still win two or three sets to the best tennis players on the circuit, “said the Swede. Federer never won a Gold in singles: he did in doubles with Wawrinka in Beijing 2008 and won silver in London 2012.
On Her Majesty’s future in professional tennis, Wilander noted: “The Laver Cup is what really drives Roger Federer to continue playing tennis. Never before have I seen him so excited and having such a good time as in the Laver Cup. He really enjoys teaming up with other tennis players in an event that has always been a success. “
Wilander, who was No. 1 in the world and conquered 33 titles, including 7 Grand Slam, is confident that Federer will continue to play the Laver Cup for several seasons: “Roger knows that he can play the Laver Cup for the next four or five years. There are only two sets in the format and in the event of a tie there is a tiebreaker. He can also play very well in the doubles. He is also a partner in the tournament. Even if Roger decides to put an end to his career, I think he will not put this competition aside.
