What will be the future of Roger Federer after the last game in the Laver Cup, which will formalize his retirement from tennis? The Swiss tennis player has solved some of the many doubts that still perplex fans and professionals: the 41-year-old will try to remain an icon for this sport and to remain a reference.
Many doors will be open to the native of Basel and his intention is to remain in the movement, obviously in other guises. At the press conference, the winner of 20 Grand Slam titles talked about the possibility of commenting on matches at Wimbledon: "I never thought I'd say such a thing but six months ago I suddenly thought: why not tell about tennis someday? Even though I always said I never would.
Maybe some Wimbledon matches!" he reiterated him.
