‘Roger Federer will find comeback very tough, but it will be fascinating to watch,’ says Tim Henman

Roger Federer ‘will not want to just make up the numbers,’ says Tim Henman, who thinks the Swiss’ comeback may be a rough one.

Federer is closing in on a return to tennis after missing almost all of 2020 with a knee injury.

Henman, though, thinks he may find recovering from such an injury much tougher than he has in the past – and that will make for ‘fascinating’ viewing.

“He’s going to have been out for 11 months and as you get older, coming back from big breaks away from the game doesn’t get any easier.

“But he has the experience and the knowledge and the ability around his game. It will be interesting to see how he is.

“We all know it doesn’t get any easier as you get older. He’s going into his 40th year and the competition is as strong as it has ever been so it will be fascinating to watch.

“He’s not someone who wants to be out there making up the numbers, he wants to be competing and trying to win the biggest tournaments.

“Fingers crossed the rehabilitation continues to go well and we can see him back on the match court in the not too distant future.”
