Roger Federer: “I hope to play Wimbledon one more time”

Roger Federer of Switzerland voiced his desire to be able to play “once again” on Wimbledon Center Court, the century-old court that has seen “his biggest victories and defeats,” but was unable to do so this season owing to a knee injury sustained during the previous London tournament.

“I’m hoping I can return once again. Perhaps I underestimated how long it would take to recover, but the knee has been difficult for me. I’ve been fortunate enough to play on this court a lot, so being here in a different capacity is unpleasant “He nodded his head. Federer on his visit to the All England Club to celebrate the tournament’s Center Court’s 100th anniversary.

Former London “Grand Slam” champions Novak Djokovic, Martina Hingis, Margaret Court, and Bjorn Borg attended the ceremony with the 40-year-old Swiss. So, whenever he recovers from his injuries, the eight-time tournament champion expects to continue his long relationship with Wimbledon.

“I’ve experienced both my biggest successes and disappointments on this track. One of my career milestones was, of course, playing Pete Sampras in a memorable fourth-round match here in 2001. That battle encouraged many of us to compete, strive to win, and do our best to represent the sport. I hope I was successful in that “said he.

Since having knee surgery after losing in straight sets to Hubert Hurkacz in the Wimbledon quarterfinals last year, the 20-time Grand Slam champion has not competed.

The Swiss player, who had said he would retire, said he would be back on the ATP Tour in 2023. The Swiss said, “I have missed being here, I would have wanted to be here, but I knew after leaving here last year that it was going to be a tough year,” adding that he was content “regardless” of tennis despite the challenges in getting back to the courts.
