‘Roger Federer did not have so many injuries because…’, says WTA star

After yesterday’s overtaking against Rafael Nadal, Daniil Medvedev can aim for the top of world tennis. So we asked ourselves: when will the Russian be able to overtake Novak Djokovic at the top of the standings? The next months of April and May will be fundamental for the race for the record. In the coming months Daniil Medvedev could take Novak Djokovic’s scalp home. The current distance in the standings should not in fact be misleading. I agree that the Serbian is at 12008 points, while the Russian stands at 9940, but in the coming months they will experience two opposite situations. In fact, it will be only in Miami that Djokovic will be able to improve (and by a lot) his points haul. In fact, Nole collected only 90 points in the last edition held. As for the tournaments on European clay, on the contrary, he will hardly be able to improve (with the exception of Monte Carlo). In fact, he won the victory in Rome and Madrid, in addition to the final at Roland Garros. The opposite is true, as we said, for Daniil. The Russian will have to improve his 90 points in Miami, but then he will have practically paved the way. At Roland Garros and Monte Carlo he will have no points to defend, while between Rome and Madrid only 20 in total (10 and 10). Simona Halep recently lavished rich praise on Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer, highlighting some of the unique qualities of the two players. Halep believes that Djokovic is an exemplary sportsperson with remarkable resilience, especially when faced with an injury, while Federer is a ‘genius’.

Halep on her passion for Roger Federer

“Novak Djokovic is an exemplary athlete,” Simona Halep said. “His strength to stay on the field, not to give up, even if he has small pains, calls the doctor and so on. The fact that he is just as well-motivated is still to be appreciated.” Moving on to Roger Federer, Simona Halep revealed that she has ‘always admired’ the Swiss legend. He believes that Federer will continue to remain active on tour for some more time, citing his incredible passion for tennis. “I’ve always admired Federer, he’s a genius from my point of view,” Halep added. “I think he will play for a while, it is clear that he does it with passion.” Simona Halep further pointed out that Roger Federer has largely witnessed an injury-free career due to his relatively effortless game. She then drew a contrast with Rafael Nadal, who has suffered a great many physical issues due to his style of play. “Federer did not have so many injuries because tennis is easy for him,” Halep said.” Nadal has a greater game of wear, and that is why he was more prone to injuries.”
