this makes the question of retirement appear again in the Tennis world.

Whitaker compares Roger Federer’s retirement with Stefan Edberg
Whitaker, THE co-host of the Tennis Podcast channel, made a comparison between Roger Federer and Stefan Edberg
“Stefan Edberg famously completed a farewell tour of the world to say goodbye before his retirement”
“and that is something we’ve speculated Federer might emulate,”
“Yeah, I think that is a bit of a bombshell because that theory of Federer retirement was one of the frontrunners of how he might do it.“
“for sure, I think that effectively takes it off the table. I think for somebody that Federer respects and is as similar to in a lot of ways”
“as Stefan Edberg, I don’t think he would listen to that advice and go against it.
Moreover, Roger Federer’s coach revealed about the tournament He will play first after He makes the comeback.
“We are sticking to what was decided. He’ll come back for the Australian Open 2021 if it takes place,”
“He has resumed physical training with Pierre Paganini. The next step will be mid-August, he’ll start practicing again.””
“However, we are considering whether to play a tournament just before Melbourne.”
