Federer Hopes Nadal can Retire on His Own Terms

Roger Federer expresses his wish for Rafael Nadal to retire from tennis on his own terms, considering Nadal’s recent injury struggles. Nadal has been absent from competitive tennis since sustaining a hip muscle injury during the Australian Open in January, and he announced in May that the upcoming season would be his last on the tour.

Federer himself faced injury setbacks towards the end of his career but managed to overcome them, winning three more grand slams after knee surgery. However, he eventually succumbed to further injuries.

Federer concludes his remarkable career by playing doubles alongside Nadal at the Laver Cup, and he hopes that his long-time rival and friend can have a more competitive final year.

Djokovic is considered the strong favorite to defend his Wimbledon title, according to Federer. He praises Djokovic’s dominance and is open to the 23-time grand slam champion surpassing his records and achieving new milestones in the sport.

Since retiring, Federer has taken on a part-time coaching role with his four children, though they may not always heed his advice. While he currently has no interest in becoming a full-time coach on the tour, he acknowledges the possibility, citing his former coach Stefan Edberg’s change of heart.

Federer also predicts a promising future for Carlos Alcaraz, the 19-year-old Spanish tennis player who is rising through the ranks and currently holds the top spot in the world rankings.
