Tennis legend Roger Federer, honored Tuesday on Center Court at Wimbledon, opened up about his new life as a retiree in an interview with the American channel CNN. “I don’t miss being on the court so much anymore because I know my body can’t do it anymore. I think it’s a good thing, it allows me to watch and follow tennis as a fan,” said the former champion.
Present at Wimbledon as a spectator for the first time this year, Federer returned to his end of career: “I feel good now. Last year was difficult, because I was still trying to play, but I had a lot of pain with my knee. Last year was Center Court’s 100th anniversary, and I came back and got an incredible ovation… I remember saying on the pitch that I hope to see you next year – and I really meant it. »
