Original title: Federer may not participate in Laver Cup singles and Nadal doubles dream
CCTV: Swiss king Roger Federer, who announced his retirement last week, is unlikely to compete in singles at the 2022 Laver Cup, according to foreign media reports. “Maybe I can play doubles with Rafa, that’s definitely a dream,” Federer said.
Federer chose the Laver Cup as the last stop for professional players. In the Laver Cup, Federer will reunite with his peers such as Nadal and Djokovic. Djokovic also arrived in London recently. Prepare for battle.
On Thursday, Federer admitted on social media that his battle with a knee problem had forced him to make the difficult choice. Speaking to Swiss broadcaster RTS after arriving in London, Federer said he was “relieved” and “very happy to have the career I’ve had.”
“It’s impossible for me to try to pursue something that is almost unrealistic anymore,” Federer told reporters. “My progress in recent months has been unsatisfactory, I have not got rid of knee problems.” “Then I received a Not Good scan, no more progress,” Federer told himself about these intractable situations, and it was all over.
Federer admitted he held back “a tear or two” when he announced his retirement last week, but felt “happy to have taken this step.” When asked about his plans for the future, Federer said: “I don’t know what my future holds, but I don’t want to stray completely from the sport that has given me everything.”
