Roger Federer is preparing for what will be his return on March 8 at the Doha tournament, which will be his return to the official circuit after 13 months. On the eve of his return, Rod Laver highlighted the Swiss’s career.
One of the best tennis players in history filled Federer with praise in dialogue with Fox Sports: “For me, I think Roger is the champion of his time. I think certainly, if you look at his track record, there is much to say that he is the best of all time “, he pointed out.
What’s more, Laver highlighted Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and the Next Gen players: “But give some of the other guys a little more time, maybe they will come and meet each other and be as good as Roger. Djokovic is certainly on his way (along with Nadal) because he won a lot of tournaments and his consistency is amazing, “he said.
At the same time, the Australian recounted the talk he had with Roger in 2020: “Roger, when I spoke to him last yearHe thought he would play his best until he was 40 and I think he’s pretty good. Unfortunately, you know, his knee has been giving him some trouble. Then he had a knee operation that will put him in good position, “he said.
Finally, Rod Laver assured: “He loves to play, he loves to compete. You know, it loves the environment that it is in. I think he can see when you have Djokovic and you have Nadal, you know, at the same time, it’s so unusual to have such great players at the same time. “
