Roger Federer’s return from injury in 2021 is eagerly awaited. He was supposed to return to the 2021 Australian Open, but he wasn’t ready on time. But still, many expect a 2017-like Federer return. And former Britain No.1 Annabel Croft firmly believes Roger Federer can do something different and challenge his rivals, Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal. .
Annabel Croft has analyzed and expects Roger Federer to make smart decisions. She said the Swiss Master will be more offensive and will look for shorter points. Federer’s strategy will determine whether he can fight for the important titles.
“He’s had time to think about his strategy for 2021 and has always been very smart in his training and programming, so it wouldn’t surprise me if he focused his practice on very short, crisp attack points.
“If he wants to fight for the biggest prizes, he must surely avoid being drawn into long wars of attrition. By nature, Federer is an aggressive player who seeks to win games quickly, but he might have decided that at this point in his career it is time to shorten the points even more by attacking at every conceivable opportunity, playing chip and charge on its returns. and get into the net whenever he can ”.
