Roger Federer set off alarms at Halle’s ATP 500 (Germany) with its early elimination before Felix Auger-Aliassime, in a date where historically he had always been at least in the quarterfinals throughout 17 participations. Strong evidence that the Swiss, after undergoing several knee operations last year, it is still far from its best.
Thus it is difficult to think that the one from Basel could be able to aspire to great feats in Wimbledon, however, a heavyweight on the circuit has a lot of faith in him. Is about Andy Murray, which does not rule out Federer at all in the title fight in London. “I don’t know exactly Roger’s situation, but from my own experience I can say that it is difficult to return to the circuit and play, after a long period away. But that is different in the Grand Slams. It is not the same as competing in other tournaments. And certainly, I don’t think other players walk Roger onto the court at Wimbledon in the same way as in other tournaments. “ stated the Scotsman.
And what plans does Murray bring to the London major? After starting the grass tour in the Queen’s tournament, where he fell last Thursday against Matteo Berrettini, he makes a reserved forecast: “I think that is what I really must improve before mobility. I have some thigh discomfort that I will try to eliminate between this tournament and Wimbledon. I would like to have more games, but at the same time with all this bubble stuff, it’s complicated. I’m not sure what to do, although it seems unlikely. “
