Swiss Maestro Roger Federer has been regarded as one of the greatest players of all time. And he has been regarded so not just for his many titles but also because of his elegance which is loved by so many people like Stefan Edberg. Check out what Stefan said in a recent interview.
Stefan Edberg has had the opportunity to work with Roger Federer very closely. He was his coach from 2013 until they parted ways in 2016. He clearly knows Roger’s game very well and feels that it is one of the most elegant. In a recent appearance on Eurosport with Mats Wilander and Boris Becker, he said,
“Like I said to Roger, he looks so easy when he plays, he floats around the court. He’s got grace, he’s got power, he’s got touch, he’s got everything you wish for. He’s almost the perfect tennis player as I see it—both on and off-court. So he’s very special like we all know.”
The Swiss Maestro has so many fans around the world because of how elegant his game is. And all of those fans are hoping that he will achieve one of his biggest goals – becoming the GOAT of tennis.
To end up as the GOAT of tennis, the Swiss Maestro has to end up holding one record – the record for the Most Slams. He is currently holding this record with 20 but his rivals Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic are getting very close. He is definitely going to want to extend his lead.
Unfortunately, Federer will not be able to do that this year. This is because he ended his 2020 season as he underwent a second knee surgery. He said that he hopes to be at his best when he returns next year.
In 2021, every single one of his fans is going to be hoping that he will pick up some Slams just like he did in 2017. And hopefully, he will do exactly that.
