"Highly unlikely" says Wimbledon legend Todd Woodbridge on Federer winning a Slam again
Doubles tennis legend Todd Woodbridge talked about Roger Federer and what has been going on with him over the past few years sharing some thoughts.
It's been a tough year for Roger Federer who has endured two knee surgeries that have left people wondering whether the Swiss Ace will ever pick up a racquet again. His career has been in a downward spiral ever since 2019 and many have expressed their belief that Federer is very close to the end.
Australian doubles tennis legend Todd Woodbridge expressed scepticism Federer was capable of winning another slam:
" Highly unlikely. If he were to win one, I think the only one that he would be able to get through is Wimbledon. He's had another knee surgery ... he's not going to be out on the court for a while. I don't think we're going to see him in Australia (in 2022). He's not going to win at the French Open, and he's 40 years of age."
It's a fair point that many share and while Federer continues his rehab it's unclear when he will return. He was last pictured in Paris during Fashion Week walking with a crutch and that is not a sight you want to see if you are a Federer fan. His recovery seems to be months away still making his Australian Open return unlikely.
Asked what he sees Roger doing once he does return Woodbridge said:
I think Roger's going to come out and play some nice matches, but winning seven matches to win a Slam, I don't think we're going to see that," Woodbridge added.
