Roger Federer walked the London fields for the first time in the company of Stefanos Tsitsipas. Then the training sessions of the Swiss phenomenon begin in view of the Laver Cup, an event that will sanction the farewell from tennis played after an extraordinary career.
In the next few hours, Novak Djokovic, Rafa Nadal and Andy Murray, the trio of wonders that will complete, together with Casper Ruud and Matteo Berrettini reserve, the European Dream Team should land in the British capital.
The twenty-time Grand Slam champion also took a historic selfie with the Greek and with the team captain Bjorn Borg, who monitored the session with some attention. The last two and a half years have been a real ordeal for the Swiss phenomenon, who had to deal with a serious right knee injury.
The three operations he underwent did not solve the problem and his physique paid the price after 24 years of career at the highest levels. Although the former world number 1 never gave up the desire to return to competition, he had to give up in the face of the evidence.
His attempt to defeat Father Tempo once again failed, despite his fans eagerly awaiting his return and perhaps a final ride in 2023.
14-year-old Roger Federer waa vegetarian, today here’s his diet
Roger remained competitive and long-lived up to the age of 40 thanks to professional training, thanks to an experienced team of coaches and physiotherapists, and thanks to a balanced diet and nutrition.
Until the age of 14, Federer was a vegetarian: a personal choice motivated by ethical reasons too. When the Swissa Maestro decided that tennis would be his professional life, things changed. Choosing to attend an academy with the aim of pursuing a professional career, Federer also changed his diet, starting to include meat.
Roger now has a studied and balanced diet. In the morning, breakfast is genetically sweet, consisting of homemade waffles with fresh fruit, a glass of juice, coffee or a glass of vinegar that he uses to help prevent muscle injuries and body alkalinity. As for the main meals, Federer has Indian, Japanese and Italian food, but his great passion is melted cheese.
