Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic are now in the final part of their careers. If the Serbian champion is still number and continues to grind records on records, a different situation for Roger and Rafa who recently have been struggling with constant physical problems and the Swiss is now struggling with the fateful last time of his career.
During an interview with the microphones of Tennis Majors Toni Nadal, former coach and uncle of the Spanish champion, spoke about the conditions of his nephew and the Swiss champion, stating that the return of the Swiss is much more complicated than that of his nephew.
Roger Federer turned 40-year-old a few months ago and underwent his third knee surgery in a year in August, while Rafa’s season ended early due to a foot problem. Uncle Toni appeared much more optimistic about Rafa stating that he believes in at least another two or three years of the Spaniard at high levels.
Toni Nadal’s words about Rafa and Roger Federer
Here are the words of Toni Nadal: “I think Roger Federer is much more complicated because he is 40 years old. He has returned from several operations and I don’t know if everything is okay.
In the case of Rafael, on the other hand, I am sure that he still has another two or three years of good level left and I am convinced that he will still be able to win a Grand Slam title. The reality is that every year it becomes more difficult for them and every year the youngsters seem closer.”
The last match played by Roger Federer this year was in the quarter-finals of Wimbledon where the Swiss champion surrendered in front of the blows of the Polish tennis player Hubert Hurkacz, clear winner in three sets.
At the end of the match Roger commented: “I was really unhappy with how things had gone at Wimbledon, I was not where I wanted and certainly I was not at my highest level. I did my best in the end and alas I had reached my limit. proceed step by step.”
