'Federer and Nadal should be worried'

‘Federer and Nadal should be worried’

German tennis star Boris Becker (54) is not eagerly looking forward to the return of injured stars Roger Federer (40) and Rafael Nadal (35) to the tour with great hope. “I think the tennis greats now should think seriously about how long they can release players,” Becker said on the Eurosport podcast “The Yellow from the Ball,” but emphasized, “It’s going to be a little easier with Rafa than with Roger.”

The Swiss Federer is currently struggling to come back after his third operation on his right knee in the past two years. The time when the 40-year-old will be able to make his hopeful comeback is still quite open. Nadal had only returned to an invitation tournament in Abu Dhabi last week after an ongoing foot injury. But when he returned to Spain, he tested positive for the coronavirus.
