Tennis great Roger Federer will hope to make an impact when he returns to the game after an injury-induced two-month absence at the Geneva Open against Spaniard Pablo Andujar on Tuesday.
“I’m just worried about where my game is. The boys are back on tour in good rhythm, the level that everyone is producing is great. I want to achieve that again,” the Swiss, who played just two games a year due to injury, said in Monday.
The 39-year-old winner of 20 Grand Slam titles said that although things were going well in practice, he still had to play a few games to return to first-class form.
“I have to play 10 games to give you a better answer [about my level]. In fact, things are going well. When you return from an injury, you are in a different place than everyone else. I’m excited about coming back and I won’t be focused on being on the same level as Rafa [Nadal] or Novak [Djokovic] right now, ”he said.
Federer, who is seeking his first title since triumphing at Swiss Indoors Basel in October 2019, underwent two arthroscopic operations on his right knee in 2020. He competed in the Qatar ExxonMobil Open in March and lost in the quarterfinals to eventual champion Nikoloz Basilashvili. Georgia.
