FEDERER PLANS TO RETURN AND STILL WATCHES RIVALS: I watched Nadal and Djokovic before bed…

While Rafael Nadal wins the titles, Novak Djokovic is trying to get back on the winning track, everyone is wondering when and whether Roger Federer will return to the field.

Federer says that he plans to return to the ATP tour in 2023, and that he will not play more than the Laver Cup and Basel this season.

– After Basel, the season is definitely over. It is important for me to be ready again so that I can train to the maximum. When I get to that level, then I will choose how many tournaments I will play and which ones. The Laver Cup is a good start, as I don’t have to play five matches in six days – said the Swiss tennis player and added:

– In Basel, I have to be able to play in that rhythm, and that is why I have to prepare for training. I’m curious to see what’s next, but I hope I’ve come a long way and I’m not far. The next three to four months will be very important.

At the same time, Federer spoke about Nadal, ie the quarterfinals of Roland Garros against Novak Djokovic.

I didn’t watch the finals, but I did watch the quarterfinals (against Djokovic) before I went to sleep. Overall, it’s amazing what Rafa has achieved. Pete Sampras’ record, which I broke, was 14 Grand Slam titles, and now Rafa has won Roland Garros 14 times. I was happy for him and I took off his hat. After the 10th or 11th time, I already thought, “This is impossible.” It continues to push the boundaries, a gigantic success – Federer said.
