Roger Federer has less than a week left in the top 10 in the world. With Hubert Hukacz’s move to the fourth round of Indian Wells, the Swiss will not appear in that lot for the first time since January 2017 next Monday. The progressive unfreezing of the world ladder marked the exit.
In the last 22 months, Federer has played no more than six tournaments on the circuit. His knee has brought him badly for almost two years and the COVID-19 pandemic, which brought with it the non-loss of points until a few months ago, kept the hope that the winner of 20 Grand Slams can enjoy good positions in the tournaments gauge, But the truth is that he could not find physical regularity and Hurkacz, paradoxically the last opponent who beat him (at Wimbledon 2021), will surpass him by at least 3 points -3288 against 3285-. October 17, 2021 will be – for now – Federer’s last day in the Top 10.
Likewise, His Majesty, who can still be surpassed by several players, will remain inactive until the end of the year, so his exit from the Top 100 was a matter of time; you will lose several points in the next few weeks. When the 2021 season wraps up, Federer could have his worst ranking in 20 years.
