Todd Woodbridge: Very unlikely that Roger Federer will win Grand Slam again

Former doubles world No. 1 Todd Woodbridge doesn’t believe that Roger Federer will ever again win a Grand Slam. 

Federer, 40, underwent two knee surgeries last year. 

Federer returned to action this past March but announced a third knee surgery in August. 

Federer’s last Grand Slam title came in 2018 after beating Marin Cilic in the Australian Open final. 

Federer had a great chance to win Wimbledon in 2019 but he missed out on two consecutive championship points against Novak Djokovic in the final.

“He’s very unlikely to win a Grand Slam again. If he were to win one, I think the only one he would be able to go for is Wimbledon. He’s had knee surgery again… He won’t be on the court for a while and I don’t think we’ll see him at the Australian Open next January. He is not going to win at Roland Garros, and he is 40 years old. I think Roger is going to come out and play some great matches, but winning seven matches to win a Grand Slam tournament, I don’t think we are going to see that,” Woodbridge said, per We Love Tenns. 

Federer enjoyed a deep run at Wimbledon 

Federer made his Grand Slam return at this year’s Wimbledon and made the quarterfinal before losing in straight sets to Hubert Hurkacz. 

“It was a tough process to take that decision, just because I already had couple of knee surgeries last year,” Federer told American former world number one Jim Courier in an interview at the Laver Cup.

“I was really unhappy with how things went at Wimbledon. I was just nowhere near where I wanted to be to play at the top, top level. But I tried my best and at the end, at some point, too much is too much. Now I’ve just got to take it step by step.”
