What will that bring tomorrow? The crowd becomes furious when Roger Federer enters the field for … training | Tennis

Last week, the 41-year-old Federer announced that he would be ending his career after the Laver Cup. Due to knee problems, he has not played since his Wimbledon quarter-final elimination in July 2021. Those knee problems prevent him from playing singles in the Laver Cup. He wanted to finish another double game. His wish was to do it with Rafael Nadal. This desire is fulfilled. On Friday evening, the two will compete for Team Europe against Jack Sock and Frances Tiafoe of Team World.

It will be a special moment for Federer. “I don’t know if I can handle it, but I will try,” he looked forward. “Playing with Rafa feels very different. I am happy to have him in my team and not have to play against him. I think it would be great to do it again. I will do my best. I will also try to enjoy it, but it will be very difficult.” Nadal is equally excited: “It will be a historic moment. One of the most important, if not the most important player in my tennis career, is to resign. In the end, this will be a difficult moment. But most of all I am very excited and grateful to play with him.”

Also excited: the audience. Federer trained today with Nadal against Djokovic and Murray. The O2 plaza has already exploded at the entrance to the Swiss (see photos above). What will he give tomorrow? If you still want a ticket, you have to deposit a lot of money. €8,900 is required to resell tickets for the long-sold out tournament.
