“It was always going to be hard, especially with my retirement. Rafa being injured, and Novak taking a break, I understood that, obviously, completely. Murray may not come back again, it’s understandable. Look it is what it is, I still think it’s going to be a great weekend.” Said Federer in a recent interview with Laver’s Cup press. Despite the absence of the Big 4, the Swiss maintain a positive mindset and an optimistic outlook. He emphasizes that the Laver’s Cup will continue to be a momentous occasion in the tennis calendar.
