Roger Federer French Open 2021

‘Roger Federer doesn’t look like a player about to retire’, says former world No. 4

French Open tournament director Guy Forget believes Roger Federer looks like a player who is “still very motivated” rather than “an old player about to stop”.

The former world No. 4 is impressed with how well the 39-year-old Swiss is playing, and in particular moving, at this year’s Roland Garros.

No. 8 seed Federer has advanced to the third round in Paris with a straight-set win against Denis Istomin and a four-set triumph over Marin Cilic.
