Everyone around the world spends their time in different ways during confinement. If some of them use up their time with family, friends, and self-learning, the rest of them burn out their time in front of the television, laptop and mobile phone. However, the 20-time Grand Slam champion Roger Federer revealed how he had spent his valuable days.
Following the Australian Open 2020 semifinal exit, former World No.1 confined nearly 13 months at his home due to two consecutive surgeries on his right knee and rehab. Federer eventually made his comeback at the Qatar Open on 10th March 2021.
I Made Video Meetings With ATP, I Communicated With Rafa, says Federer
In a recent interview, Swiss Maestro was asked how he spent his long evenings confined hanging on Netflix to stave off boredom?
Roger replied, “No, I haven’t ‘binged’ that much, either movies or series. I was busy becoming the family quarterback for once. In my tennis life, I make big decisions, and people manage the day-to-day for me.”(Quotes have been translated into English via Google translator)
In 2009, Federer married his mixed doubles partner and his countrywoman Mirka. A beautiful couple has four children(twin girls and twin boys).
“There, I was really happy to pilot details with my wife, to think of things for the children, the garden, the house,” the 39-year-old from Basel added.
RF also emphasised online conversation with his rival Rafael Nadal, “I made video meetings with ATP, I communicated with Rafa in particular.”
“In my normal life, everything was improvised based on the results. I often left at the last minute, took out my things and put them back together. Since the confinement, I have had time. Well, I don’t rule out starting to ‘binge-watcher’ if it lasts too long.” Roger Federer concluded with a laugh.
