‘I found myself facing Roger Federer and…’, says former ace

Roger Federer wants to treat himself to one last round of the merry-go-round before hanging up his racket. The Swiss phenomenon has undergone three operations on his right knee in the last two years, failing to play as and as much as he would have liked.

His last official appearance dates back to Wimbledon 2021, where he reached the quarterfinals thanks to a not impossible scoreboard. His race came to an abrupt halt against a wild Hubert Hurkacz, capable of even giving him a bagel on Center Court.

A few weeks later, the former ATP number 1 announced that he had to operate on his knee for the umpteenth time. Barring further unforeseen circumstances, the King is expected to return to the Laver Cup, which will take place at London’s O2 Arena from 23-25 ​​September.

The 20-time Grand Slam champion will also take part in the ATP in Basel, which returned to the calendar after the last two editions had been canceled due to the pandemic. A few days ago, the 40-year-old Swiss became the subject of an anecdote told by David Nalbandian in an interview on Argentine television.

He remembered in particular a tournament in Monte Carlo where he had challenged Rafael Nadal and David Ferrer on the PlayStation “We had a small tournament and the loser had to go down to the hotel lobby in his underwear by the elevator.

Unfortunately, I lost and couldn’t negotiate anything. So I took the elevator and the funniest thing is that when it opened I found myself facing Roger Federer and Mirka, it was quite embarrassing,” explained the Argentinian.

Roger Federer is one of the greatest players of all time and is respected by the entire tennis world for his achievements. “We were playing at the Australian Open one year and it often happens as well, the quacking in the crowd and he thought that it was pretty funny.

So that’s what he calls me. He calls me ‘Quack’,” Duckworth said. Henley was surprised and, at the same time, glad to hear the story. “That is amazing. That’s the Roger Federer story we did not know we were going to get today,” Henley said. Federer hasn’t played a match since his quarterfinal defeat to Hubert Hurkacz at last year’s Wimbledon.
