According to the Swiss press, the legendary player would not be able to line up in singles at the Laver Cup. He dreams of a double curtain drop with Rafael Nadal.
Uncertainty reigns around the role that Roger Federer will play within the European team led by Björn Borg opposed to the formation of the rest of the world led by John McEnroe, within the framework of the 5th Laver Cup (from 23 to 25 May, in London).
“I’m surprised how well I hit the ball! But I won’t be able to play singles. That was already quite clear in advance. That’s also why it’s been a while since it was certain that I could not play in Basel (from October 24 to 30). With the Laver Cup system, I think I’ll only come into play on Friday night“, he announces in Le Matin.
“Maybe I could play doubles with Rafa, that would be an absolute dream“, declared the Swiss legend to the RTS.
The former world No. 1 (41) is about to put the end to a scintillating career made in 1998, lit by 103 titles, including 20 Grand Slams.
