One of the greatest tennis players of all time, Roger Federer, thinks professional tennis games will not return on courts for a long time due to a coronavirus outbreak.
He also says that it will be pretty hard to play games on the empty stadiums when the time comes. He decided to give a press conference, as official tennis authorities are suspended all the actions through July.
Last Sunday, the first day of one of the biggest tennis tournaments, the French Open, should be started, but unfortunately, it is not. Initially, it should be opened in March, but was rescheduled again for September.
Another big competition, Grand Slam, Wimbledon that should start in July, also was canceled off. The following information passed by from the World Tennis Organization not so long ago.
"Nowadays, I am not training at all," said tennis star. "It is because I don't feel like it is worth something or it is honest according to other players' condition."
"I believe that returning to the games is still far from the beginning, and I am pretty okay with my body condition," also said Federer. "When everybody will be allowed to return, I think that I will be super motivated to begin my training again."
Federer is one of the most supported among fans player ever, and the games without spectators are a severe issue to him. He mentioned that in his statement.
