Nikolay Davydenko commented on Roger Federer’s future
In a recent interview with CLAY, Nikolay Davydenko commented on Roger Federer’s future. Davidenko explained: “I think Roger Federer will play in the Basel tournament to end his career there. That is my opinion.”
The Russians have lost 17 of 17 matches against the Swiss: “Federer has always been the toughest opponent I have to beat. The reason? Because his forehead was very sharp and his serve was very accurate. ۔
I was almost never in control of the game against Roger Federer. I have had the opportunity to beat Roger many times, but he has always been better than me in decisive moments. I often reached tie-breaks or set points, but then I always lost.
I redeemed myself in London in 2009. I feel like my time has come and I’m a little lucky. This victory gave me psychological confidence, in fact, I easily defeated him in the next game in Doha. It’s no secret that I had mental health problems when I met Federer. “
Roger Federer returns
As everyone knows, Roger Federer will return to the court in the Laurel Cup. The 2022 edition will be held September 23-25 at the O2 Arena in London. The former World No. 1, who has not played an official match in almost a year, will also play in the Basel ATP in the fall.
The last two seasons have been a real test for the Swiss player, who is struggling with a serious right knee problem that has prevented him from playing as much as he would like. Suffice it to say that the 40-year-old from Basel played only 13 official matches last year, winning nine and losing four.
The 20-time Grand Slam champion had to settle for Round of 16 and Wimbledon quarterfinals at Roland Garros, a small number for a legend of his caliber. So for the third time, knee surgery and long rehabilitation have been decided. According to him, Badshah also plans to play some tournaments in 2023. However, not everyone is convinced.
