Roger Federer missed a chance this week to return to No. 1 after losing tonight to Juan Martin del Potro in the quarterfinals at the US Open.
The Swiss, though, confirmed his upcoming schedule which he hopes to be 100% for.
“Now I have Laver Cup, Shanghai, Basel, Paris, and London,” Federer said. “That’s my schedule, and it won’t change. I hope I’m fully recovered and 100% fit when Laver Cup comes around. When that’s over, I hope I’m going to arrive really early in Shanghai to really get ready and make it a priority for me to win that tournament. So that’s the schedule there.”
And after all the matches, he’s happy to get a break.
“Good thing is that I need a rest,” Federer added. “I have a rest now, so that’s good. That’s actually the thing when I walked off the court, I was, like, Finally, I can rest. Because I’m tired. I put a lot into it. I was not sure I could play, to be honest, so I’m happy I get a rest now.”
