Tennis News: Some of his toughest enemies have returned to training in recent weeks, but Roger Federer admitted that he didn’t train for now.

Roger Federer, who last competed at the Australian Open this season before undergoing knee surgery in February, took a different approach.

The tennis tournament has been suspended since the beginning of March with August 1 being the earliest possible date for holding the tournament, although some believe that the tennis tournament might not continue until the end of the season.

The world’s top players like Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic have uploaded videos through social media that show they are practicing on the field again after the rules during the lockdown in Spain were slightly relaxed.

“We have not stayed at home for more than five weeks since my last operation in the 2016 season,” Roger Federer told former world number 1 Gustavo Kuerten via video call.

“Now is an extraordinary time for us as a family. We sometimes have fun with madness like other families. But to be honest, we are healthy, our friends and family are not expose to viruses, which is certainly important to us. And we are fine regardless of the current situation. “

“I’m not training right now, because honestly I don’t see a reason to do it. I am happy with my current body condition and I still believe that the tournament resumption will still be long. I also think, right now it’s important for me to enjoy this break after playing so much tennis. I don’t miss him too much. “

“I will feel it when I am close to training again and have a goal to practice. I will be very motivated. “

Previously, Swiss tennis player, Roger Federer poured his thoughts on how the tennis tournament will be resumed.

Federer stated that he would find it very difficult to carry out tournaments without fans because of the health and safety risks in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Tennis officials are still discussing when the tournament will be safe enough to resume after being suspended since March due to the COVID-19 pandemic. At present, all ATP tournaments have been suspended or canceled at least until early August.

It is hope that this season’s tennis tournament can resume before the US Open, which will make a decision next month. However, rumors about whether fans are allowed to attend have still not been decided.

Through an interview connected via video with one of the Brazilian tennis legends, Gustavo Kuerten, Federer admitted that he opposed the plan to play tennis without fans.

“In my point of view, I can’t see an empty stadium,” Federer admitted.

“I hope that will not happen. Maybe we should wait for the right time to get back to playing normally again or at least three quarters or half a full stadium. But for me, diving in a big tournament in a completely empty stadium would be very difficult.
