Roger Federer interview

Roger Federer has confirmed he has recieved a Covid-19 vaccine ahead of his return to action in Geneva.

Several high-profile players on the men’s and women’s tours have expressed reservations about taking a vaccine to protect against the coronavrius, with world No.1 Noavk Djokovic among the first to suggest he was reluctant to have the injection.

Now Federer has confirmed he has had the vaccine, as he suggested he was keen to protect others as well as himself.

“Yes, I’m vaccinated,” Federer told Switzerland’s Leman Bleu television. “I got the Pfizer.

“I am happy to have been able to do it with all the trips I take.

“Even if I’m staying in Switzerland, I think there are advantages. Above all, I did it for others because I don’t want to give it to anyone else, even if I still remain very careful.

“We’re very careful with the family and with our friends.”

Federer also expressed his excitement at the prospect of his return to action, although he admitted this summer will be different as his family will not be travelling with him to teh French Open and Wimbledon.

“Right now, comeback mode is on, let‘s see what can be achieved, can‘t take the family to Paris, Wimbledon probably not either,” added Federer.

The 20-time Grand Slam champion is preparing to make his return to action in Geneva, in what will be his only clay court event ahead of the French Open.
