According World Tennisshe says, “The feeling is that it would take a titanic feat not to return to number 1, but even just to return to the Top 5. That would be something incredible at his age. We don’t know how training is going.

Moreover, Evert is also unsure if Federer is still wearing the same training he had before his one-year gap with tennis. She says, “We don’t even know if he is as hungry as before or if he is satisfied with the life he leads. We can only give a verdict after seeing it in action. As I have repeated a myriad of times, everyone withdraws when they want.
