About four and a half years later, Roger Federer was in the top 10 of the ATP rankings. Things were in the air, only official status was missing, and overtaking was done by Hubert Hurkacz’s access to Round 16 of the Indian Wells tournament.
Already at the start of the tournament, it was recognized that this step was almost certain, and now the 20th Grand Slam tournament winner, the Swiss Champion, will move to 11th place. Fatal to this sensational exit from Switzerland was the Indian Wells Tournament.
Dominic Thiem won the Roger Federer final in the American Desert Tournament two years ago, but last year there was no tournament and this time both Austria and Switzerland lost some points.
Now that Felix Auger Aliassim has been eliminated, the next person who can overtake Roger is Jannik Sinner, who is currently in 16 rounds at Indian Wells, thanks to the retirement of John Isner of the United States (he is 3). I left the tournament because my second daughter was born).
The Swiss champion is over 40 and, to tell the truth, only the pandemic freezing and blocking of the rankings slowed this exit in a “natural” position given his age. Last half, Federer rarely played to “master” an injured tournament. Three operations for a Swiss tennis player even raised doubts about his return to the field. When a tennis player returns to the field.
Despite all, his best results were in the Grand Slam tournaments, Roland Garros and Wimbledon (his tournament), reaching round 16 and quarterfinals respectively. On his quarter English lawn, he played his last match with that Hubert Hurkacz, who today separated him from the top ten in the world.
Uncle Toni of Big 3
Recently, Toni Nadal talked about various topics. However, Toni frowned at his remarks about Novak Djokovic. For years, fans have always been biased towards Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal. Novak is often treated hostilely by tennis fans.
The coach clarified why the Serbs were treated that way. At the age of 60, he said: They were two conflicting styles, two different orbits, which fascinated people.
I also think Novak’s ego betrayed him for acting incompatible with number one on the track. However, Toni revealed that he maintained a very good relationship with the Serbs.
