“I will be super motivated” – Roger Federer provides fitness update and practice plans

Roger Federer says he is not even thinking about a return to the practice court yet as he doesn’t believe tennis is close to resuming.

Both the ATP and WTA have been suspended since early March as the world wrestles with coronavirus, and Federer has been away from the game even longer after undergoing knee surgery in February.

However, while many players are easing back into the practice routines, Roger Federer is adamant he sees no reason to at present.

“I am happy with my body now and I still believe that the return of the tour is a long way off,” Federer told Gustavo Kuerten in a live webchat.

“And I think it’s important mentally to enjoy this break, having played so much tennis.

“When I’m getting towards returning and have a goal to train for, I think I will be super motivated.”

Federer is also not getting any pressure from his coach Severin Luthi, who shares the Swiss’ lack of urgency.

“For Roger, it is not necessary to be hitting balls too much,” Luthi told Tennis Channel.

“The volley challenge that he put up on social media was more for fun. He is coming back from knee surgery. At the moment, there is no stress or pressure on him to practice.

“If the tournaments start again I think there is going to be enough time [to prepare].”
