‘Roger Federer is so good for tennis,’ says Marseille chief as he’s backed to win Wimbledon


Roger Federer has been backed to win Wimbledon this year by an ATP tournament director despite working his way back from double-knee-surgery.

Federer only made his comeback last week in Doha after more than 400 days on battling back from serious injury.

The comeback went relatively well considering, with him beating Dan Evans before losing out in the second round to eventual winner Nikoloz Basilashvili.

And, despite Federer approaching his 40th birthday this summer, Marseille tournament director Jean-Francois Caujolle is backing him to claim another title in SW19.

“Why not?” Caujolle answered when asked if he thought Roger Federer could win Wimbledon this year. “He is just amazing.

“He is as excited as when he was at 17-years-old so he can win on grass if he is totally fit.

“I also thought he could have beaten Nikoloz Basilashvili in Doha and gone far. He is so good for tennis.”

Federer will now not play again until next month after choosing to withdraw from Miami to focus on his training.
