The legendary Swiss tennis player Roger Federer, who has not played since January when he reached the Australian Open semi-finals, continues to recover from the two surgeries he later underwent on his right knee and revealed that he cannot train for more than two hours, although he hopes to return to the ring early of 2021.
“I am on the right track, I am coming back little by little, but without pressure and taking my time. I will only participate in a tournament when I am one hundred percent fit. Currently, it looks like I can return to the Australian Open in January“, he began saying in dialogue with the Swiss magazine Schweizer Illustrierte.
There he also explained what his return plan is like: “I still can’t train fully, more than two hours with the racket. That is not possible at the moment. But I have been working on my endurance and strength without pain for a while. What I do know is that there will be no more surgeries“.
On the other hand, the Swiss assured that his preparation is very well planned and that his goal for 2021 is to try to win another Grand Slam and that one of his goals is to be able to participate in the Tokyo Olympics.
Finally, when asked about how things will be once he retires, he replied that “these thoughts have been occupying me specifically for about five years. But as long as I am having fun and it is suitable for all of us, keep going. After that, I will focus on my family, my foundation, and my sponsors.. I am very interested in business ideas and entrepreneurship. But I definitely don’t want to plan everything now. “
