On Sunday, the legendary tennis player Roger Federer was sighted at Wimbledon, and it is anticipated that he will make an appearance at Center Court.
On Sunday, Roger Federer was seen in and around the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club, indicating that he has returned to the Wimbledon tennis tournament. The tennis great played his final competitive match at Wimbledon the year before, where he was defeated by Hubert Hurkacz in the quarterfinals.
The match was played in straight sets and it was also the first time in 19 years that he lost in straight sets at Wimbledon, and it was also only the second time in the 21st century that he dropped a set by a score of 6-0. Because it is the Center Court’s 100th anniversary and also the first-ever Middle Sunday with play as part of the new tournament schedule, the organizers have already confirmed that celebrations will take place before play on the main court on Sunday. The celebrations will take place before the play begins on the main court. Additionally, it has been rumored that the Swiss player may also participate in the celebrations in some capacity. The official Twitter account for the competition published some shots of Roger Federer, who was wearing a black suit in the pictures.
It is anticipated that Roger Federer will make his comeback to competitive action at the Laver Cup in London this year, which will take place from September 23 to September 25. Additionally, it is anticipated that he will compete in the Swiss Indoors Basel, which is his home tournament.
Rafael Nadal, a long-time adversary of Roger Federer’s, has been playing exceptionally well in this event. Nadal is currently in the first place. On Saturday, the Spaniard won his third-round match against Lorenzo Songo in convincing fashion, prevailing by scores of 6-1, 6-2, and 6-4.
Following his victory, Nadal stated that it was “my best match here without a doubt during these championships, I was able to increase my level, and I am really thrilled for that.”
“Throughout my career, I’ve dealt with some very serious injuries, but in a way, I consider it a great blessing that I’m still able to play at my age.” Back then, I had no idea what would occur in the next decade, therefore I count my blessings every day,” he continued. In Nadal’s forthcoming encounter in the Round of 16, which will take place on Monday, Botic van de Zandschulp will be his opponent.
