Chris Evert has a successful Academy in Boca Raton, Florida, and in Coronavirus time he took an initiative to stay in touch with tennis players. The most recent “guests” of the 18-time Slam champion were Matteo Berrettini and Ajla Tomljanovic, who talked with Evert for more than an hour.

 

 

The Italian player revealed he idolized Roger Federer. “Roger is tennis. He can do whatever he wants. It’s easy. He is my idol. I can talk about him for two years. He makes it look like he born like that. Novak is a machine.

For me, he is the worst to play. I remember playing playing in London at the tour finals, had nearly 70% of my first serves in the second set and still lost the set 6-1. I could not hold my serve. He has an amazing return. His backhand is really good.

Nadal’s intensity is unbelievable. It does not matter if the score is 5-0 and 0-5″ – said Berrettini. On the current suspension of the tennis season, he added: “I am not optimistic that the tennis season will resume this summer.

Europe and the United States are getting through a difficult period. I fear that the current season will be cancelled. I am in good shape and I am training every day”. On the relationship with his coach Vincenzo Santopadre: “I met Vincenzo for the first time when I was 14 and I spend more time with him than my family.

I started training with him for fun. He did not put pressure on me until I was 20 years old. He knew that tennis is a marathon, but not a sprint. He helped me to improve my physical training”.

The Swiss legend Roger Federer is one of the top-ten highest-paid athletes in the world. With all his lucrative endorsements his estimated net worth sits at around $450 million. From his plethora endorsement deals, the innovation leader in automatic coffee machines Jura are also the sponsors of the 20-time Grand Slam champion.

In one of their advertisements in 2017, Federer was scripted to play tennis against a robot, who was tentatively the ‘robotic housekeeper.’ It greets Roger when he returns home after training. Later, the Swiss orders it to do some activities but he misfires and the robot begins to shoot tennis balls.

After failing to control the continuous attacking balls, Federer takes a chopping board and bangs one of the balls on the robot’s head.

Amid the coronavirus pandemic, the tennis tour has been suspended until mid-July, which incorporates the cancelation of Wimbledon 2020.

Eight-time Wimbledon champion Roger Federer addressed the entire tennis world to express their gratitude and cheer for the ‘new champions this summer’ in an emotional video which also elucidates the profoundness of Wimbledon.

“This summer, sadly, we must come together by staying apart. No tents will be pitched, no records broken, no trophies engraved. But as we say thank you for your passion and support. We remind ourselves that countless champions will be crowned,” Federer Narrated.

“As frontline workers across the globe compete for us, we cheer for them. For now, with play suspended, we are united in the hope that tomorrow will be better than today,” he said.

With the lockdowns taking place globally, 38-year-old Federer is also staying at home in Switzerland and practicing tennis amidst the snowfall. He seems to have recovered from knee surgery which he underwent in February this year.
