After Roger Federer withdrew from the French Open, he is scheduled to compete for the Noventi Open this Thursday.
He was seen practicing with co-tennis player Kei Nishikori for the grass-court season, under the observation of Coach Ivan Ljubicic. The 103-time title winner had won the Halle title when he played in the tournament last 2019.
The Swiss Federer will be competing with a lot of strong contenders this year, including Alexander Zverev, Andrey Rublev, and Daniil Medvedev. To Federer’s advantage, he has a boasting record of 19 tour-level titles on grass-court and a 187-27 match recording, which means he had an 87.4% winning rate.
Even when he defeated Dominik Koepfer mercilessly in the third round Roland Garros, he was bound to face Matteo Berrettini, which caused controversy.
He was doing well in the Roland Garros when he shunned his fans with his withdrawal. He explained in his Twitter post that he had discussed his withdrawal with his team, and this is because he has to listen to his body. After recovering from 2 knee surgeries and rehabilitation, he said that he might have pushed himself farther to recovery.
The Swiss player is considered as one of the greatest tennis players of all time and holds 103 ATP records and 20 Grand Slam Titles. He also had founded the Roger Federer Foundation to help children in Switzerland and Africa get through with poverty and provide education for them. With his upcoming schedule on the grass-court, fans are hoping that he had fully recovered from the surgeries and come back stronger.
