Very unlikely Roger Federer will win the Grand Slam again
Former doubles world number one Todd Woodbridge doesn’t believe Roger Federer will win a Grand Slam again. Federer, 40, had two knee operations last year. Federer returned to action last 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 of winning Wimbledon in 2019, but he missed two straight league 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 could win would be Wimbledon. He 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’s not going to win at Roland Garros, and he’s 40 years old. I think Roger is going to come out and play great games, but winning seven games to win a Grand Slam tournament, I don’t think we’re going to see that, “said Woodbridge, per We Love Tenns.
Federer enjoyed a deep run at Wimbledon
Federer made his Grand Slam comeback at Wimbledon this year and reached the quarter-finals before losing in straight sets to Hubert Hurkacz. “It was a difficult process to make this decision, just because I already had some knee operations last year,” Federer told former US world number one Jim Courier in an interview with the Laver Cup.
“I was really unhappy with the way things turned out at Wimbledon. I was far from where I wanted to be to play at the top level. But I did my best and in the end, at one point, enough is enough. Now I just have to go step by step. ”
