Over the past two years, the Swiss champion, 20-time Grand Slam title winner Roger Federer, has experienced a lot of hardship. Initially the tennis player was formed after the Covid emergency, but a series of injuries (and operations) have slowed down the Swiss career and now we can see Roger on the field really with the dropper.
Last year we saw Federer on the pitch at Wimbledon where he came out badly (thanks to injuries) against the Polish Hubert Hurkacz, but that was the last time we saw the European legend on the pitch. Federer has been forced to a new operation and now everyone is curious to see if Roger Federer will return to the field.
After the age of 40 and with several operations behind him, a question that is far from certain. Together with Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic, Roger has dominated the last twenty years and the three are known to be known as the Big Three, tennis players who have changed the way we perceive the vision of this sport
In particular, especially Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal, known for FEDAL, have given birth to one of the greatest rivalries in the history not only of tennis, but of all sport. Federer is behind in the head-to-head matches against both Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal and many consider this a very important aspect in the fight at the GOAT.
The former Spanish tennis player Alex Corretja focused on this situation, declaring: “When it comes to the fight at the GOAT, many emphasize Roger’s previous history with Rafa Nadal and Novak Djokovic and for this reason he could not be the GOAT, but for me this is is absurd.”
Nadal is one of the greatest players ever to grace the sport
Rafael Nadal is one of the greatest players ever to grace the sport. He is not only a great ambassador for our sport but also a role model for kids and budding tennis players.
His balanced on-court demeanor and humility are probably the biggest two virtues of the Spaniard. Rafael Nadal is one of the best problem-solvers on the tour. He deals with success and failures equally with a balanced mind, focusing on the present.
Opening up about maintaining balance in life he said., “In the end balance is important. One chooses what they think is going to work best for them or what they are not ready to assume. Everything life is about balance and measuring your efforts.
If one is sleeping the perfect amount of hours, doing the right prevention work, following the right diet, training the right amount but not enjoying life well it is going to affect your performance negatively”.
