Roger Federer's last months and in general the last two years have been very troubled. The Swiss champion, winner of twenty Grand Slam tournaments, has undergone several surgeries and played few matches. In 2021 he returned around the month of March and despite the late age for a tennis player he collected good results such as the Round of 16 at Roland Garros and the quarter-finals at the home tournament for him in Wimbledon.
Here he played the last match against the Polish Hubert Hurkacz and after that match he underwent the third surgery in two years, a quite complicated and partly worrying physical situation. The tennis player is currently injured and the date of his return is unknown, but excellent indications are on the way for the Swiss.
Through its social profiles, the sponsor of the Swiss Uniqlo has published a selfie of Roger Federer who is training in the gym. In the photo, the player appears to be in excellent form and obviously shows off the white Uniqlo shirt and the red RF cap.
Roger Federer recently talked about his chances of returning to the court and had even expressed doubts about the possibility of being on the field in the Wimbledon tournament which will be played in several months in the summer of 2022.
Attached to the post Uniqlo advertised his athlete and his material and said: "We are delighted to see Roger Federer return to training with his characteristic and specific RF cap. We are happy to see him and we also want to wish everyone happy holidays.
This hat can be a last minute gift for your loved ones." Roger Federer has a lucrative contract with this brand, a $ 300 million deal that will last for several more years. Despite having only played five tournaments Roger Federer won the ATP Fans Favorite Award for the umpteenth time with fans honoring the Swiss, he won this title for the nineteenth time and beat rivals of the caliber of Rafael Nadal and Novak.
Juan Martin Del Potro announces his possible come back
Juan Martin Del Potro looks ready to come back. The Argentinian champion did a lot less than everyone expected in his career but only because of injuries. Despite everything, Juan Martin is always back and although he hasn't played for a long time, he is ready to return to the Tour.
The former US Open 2009 winner posted a message on social media stating which tournament he wants to return to. The giant from Tandil is energized and left the following social message: "I have trained very hard, some days are better than others but I am always hoping to return to racing early next year.
It would be very special for me to return to tournaments in Buenos Aires and then to play in Rio de Janeiro. As you can all imagine, I am giving my all every day so that he can come back soon and we can see each other again.
I will keep you updated on my progress, see you soon. Take care of yourself." In the last few days Del Potro has posted a video where he kept constant training on the pitch and now he seems more and more energized towards returning to the court.
The former Top 5 played the last tournament about two years ago and on seven occasions he has already made important returns from injuries. One of his most famous comebacks occurred in 2016 with Juan Martin returning and winning a Masters 1000, an Olympic silver medal and a Grand Slam final.
Now there is great expectation and curiosity for his return to the court. Compared to 2016, the situation is certainly more difficult, the tennis player has not played for two years and now at the age of 33 he is now in the final phase of his career.
It will be curious and interesting to understand if the tennis player will be able to return to the field in the next two months. Currently the circuit is stopped for the end of the season and we are only witnessing an exhibition tournament where there are, among other things, two former world number ones, Andy Murray and the Spaniard Rafael Nadal, also returning from a bad foot injury.
