Federer’s longtime fitness trainer Pierre Paganini revealed: “He will decide at the last moment.

“He’s trained to have as much information as possible about whether it is a good idea or not.”

Matteo Berrettini, 2021 Wimbledon finalist, is waiting in reserve to replace Federer for the team event and play for Europe.

Federer won an outrageous 20 Grand Slam titles during his illustrious career.

Federer won his first Grand Slam 19 years ago, way back in 2003 at Wimbledon.

The Swiss icon won THREE of 2004’s four majors, only failing to win the French Open.

Federer went on to utterly dominate the 2000s and even into the 2010s despite being forced to compete with fellow legends Rafa Nadal and Novak Djokovic.
