Roger Federer’s Candid Response: Did He Watch Carlos Alcaraz-Novak Djokovic Wimbledon Final?

Has Alcaraz ever played Federer?, What did Roger Federer say about Alcaraz?, Why did Djokovic cry after Wimbledon?

When Wimbledon rolled around this year, Roger Federer was experiencing a unique perspective at The All England Club as a retired player for the first time. The Swiss legend, known for his remarkable Wimbledon history, revealed that he managed to catch a glimpse of the Carlos Alcaraz-Novak Djokovic final, but his busy life hardly allowed for extended viewing.

As the Wimbledon final unfolded, the 20-year-old Carlos Alcaraz electrified the tennis world by clinching his inaugural Wimbledon title in a thrilling five-set match against Novak Djokovic. This victory not only marked a significant milestone in Alcaraz’s career but also prevented Djokovic from equaling Federer’s legendary record of eight Wimbledon titles.

Federer shared insights into his viewing habits, saying, “I follow results almost daily. I like to see what’s going on out there. Mostly highlights, I maybe go on YouTube and check four or five-minute highlights to get a bit of a feel for the match a bit more. It’s hard for me to sit through matches because I don’t have the time, to be honest. With the children and all the stuff that’s going on in my life, it’s hard to say, ‘Okay, on that day, I will watch that match.’ Like the Wimbledon final, I literally only saw a couple of games that day because we were running around with the kids and doing stuff.”

Federer continued, “Then at one point, I quickly checked in just to say, ‘Okay, I saw the Wimbledon final a little bit.’ Of course, I was curious, I was checking the scores from time to time, but for me to sit down is hard. I was happy that the match was as great as it was, and I love when great stories come out of the game.”

Before the tournament, Djokovic was widely regarded as the top favorite, with expectations that he would secure yet another Wimbledon title and potentially tie Federer’s all-time record. However, fate had other plans, and Djokovic will have to wait at least another year to challenge Federer’s Wimbledon legacy at The Championships.
