The whole tennis world is eagerly waiting to see Roger Federer in the ATP Tours again. After having undergone back-to-back knee surgeries, the 39-years-old Swiss is now on the court and preparing for his comeback.
Andrey Rublev, who has received the most improved player of the year award a couple of days ago, said that he is excited about the former World No.1 Roger Federer’s comeback in a recent interview with Marca.
The 23-years-old Russian tennis star also emphasised that he wishes to increase his career as Swiss Maestro and confessed Roger’s return performances could serve as an example.
“It’s a good question because I’m really looking forward to seeing how he does it. Never in history has there been a case like him, and I want to see what will happen because it can serve as an example. I also want to extend my career as long as possible. I don’t see myself retiring at 30,” World No.8 said. (Quotes translated English via Google translator)
