Roger Federer hopes tennis could be more colorful to attract young people

Roger Federer is hoping tennis can become more colorful so that it could be enjoyable for young people. The Swiss played competed with Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic which influenced the attraction of tennis around the globe. Their competitiveness, charisma, and achievement made them to be dubbed The Big Three.

With Nadal and Djokovic already in their late thirties and Federer retired, the sport seems to be facing difficulty in attracting fans. On the other hand, tennis seems not to have changed a lot to make it more attractive like football and other sports.

I would like to see a little more color in tennis. Our sport is quite “old school”. We need new methods, new ideas. If we don't have that, young people will go to football or another sport.

Also, the youngster has become inconsistent at their game, a drift from what the Big Three were. Perhaps, with the rise of Jannik Sinner and Carlos Alcaraz, the game can be more competitive and attractive.
