All the lights are gradually turning green for Roger Federer. After officially confirming its presence at the antipodes next January to Craig Tiley, director of the Australian Open, the Swiss clan has decided to communicate more about his state of form. In one, Ivan Ljubicic, one of his two coaches, thus showed certain optimism about the Balois’ upcoming comeback in 2021. And as if to support his claims, Federer himself posted a photo of him in training on social networks with a clear message in the title: “Back to work.”

It’s in the recovery phase, I would say things are going in the best way“said the Croatian. Before clarifying his thoughts:”He’s training more and more and better, I’m curious to see how far we can push him in the coming months. The program we had in mind, to date, has been fully respected. “After two arthroscopies of the right knee, the Swiss had decided to end his season, then resumed his physical preparation in July, before returning to the training courts occasionally in August.

There is a lot of confidence

At the time, he could not inflict sessions for longer than two hours. It seems that the Federer has changed gear in recent weeks. Several photos taken with fans after training attested to this and Ljubicic confirmed it by insisting on a goal now clearly assumed: to be competitive in Melbourne. “There is a lot of confidence. I certainly cannot say at this time what we will do in April. I know we want to leave as soon as possible (from Switzerland where they currently work, editor’s note), play a big Australian Open and then evaluate it step by step. It will be important to observe periods of rest. ” It remains to be seen what “big” really means after a year of forced hiatus.

Finally, the Croatian has not changed his speech in relation to a possible retirement of Federer in the short term. “He doesn’t set limits for himself, and I even less. I hope it will go on for a long time, of course“, he concluded on the subject. This is very reassuring news for the admirers, and they are numerous, of the” Maestro “who has not been seen on a competitive court since… the last Australian Open , exactly.
