Roger Federer fans were disappointed to hear the news that the 20th Grand Slam champion was not at the start of the Australian Open 2021. The signs were there. Already at the Laureus Awards ceremony, he was awarded to the best Swiss athlete in the last 70 years, the former world number one expressed serious doubts about his presence in Melbourne in a month and a half Was there.
Even the postponement of the Happy Slum from February 8th to 21st did not cause King Roger to fly to Australia. In Australia, I will miss for the first time in the last 21 editions. The Australian Open is also in response to the last official tournament held by a 39-year-old player from Basel, who underwent two surgeries on his right knee after 2020.
In a long interview given to the 20-minute portal, his friend Marc Rosset provided some useful interpretations to explain Federer’s absence in the first slam of the season. The hearts of Swiss veterans are already projected in a summer full of promises, where Wimbledon and the Tokyo Olympics could be Roger’s last effort before retirement.
Roger Federer’s Rosette
“You can see Roger Federer returning to Rotterdam,” Marc Rosset and Eve Allegro told the 20-minute website all at once. “Here he aimed to be number one in the world in 2017. I have good memories,” Rosette added.
Marc Rosset emphasized that the eight-time Wimbledon champion is known to be an obsessive when it comes to caring for his body. “At the age of 39, he probably needs more time to feel at ease,” Rosette said. “Roger Federer is a man with many precautions and he is not playing with his body.
During his 20-year career, he did everything to avoid the slightest anti-inflammatory. Should I be afraid of lack of matches? I can’t believe it, “Rosette said. “Remember, we’re having a weird year with few tournaments and the addition of the Mini ATP Cup and the Australian Open.
Therefore, at the beginning of the 2021 season, Roger Federer will have one or two more tournaments than any other tournament. So the real question is simple: does his body allow him to train hard? In my opinion, the only unknown is at the level of his knees, “Rosette added. “When it comes to games, I don’t care about the choices. It’s like riding a bike.”
