All England Club board member, and former ATP star Tim Henman, discussed the potential return of Roger Federer at Wimbledon, during an exclusive interview with Express Sport. According to the latest rumors, The Swiss Maestro is expected to be at Wimbledon 2023 as a pundit for the BBC.
Henman told: “Will Roger Federer come to Wimbledon this year? I hope so. In what capacity? I don’t know. He was an amazing champion in our sport, the most incredible ambassador for our sport and he’s a dear friend of mine, so I hope I really want to see him a little more. I mean he’s a member, true, Wimbledon.
I hope he’s around and I’m sure he will be, he’s got too big a connection and too big a story not to be around at a certain point.”
Will Roger Federer be at Wimbledon 2023 for the BBC?
Federer, as stated by journalist Sue Barker, could join the team of BBC commentators in view of the next edition of Wimbledon.
As revealed by the British newspaper The Daily Telegraph, the Swiss visited the All England Club for the second time in a few months last week. A visit that turns into a significant clue in the light of the indiscretions published by the major newspapers.
“Federer was seen at the All England Club last week. This is his second visit in recent months. Wimbledon are exploring and evaluating what role Federer will play in the future but this is yet to be determined,” wrote Mike Dickson of the Mail Online Sport on your Twitter account.
Federer himself told a very amusing anecdote about his penultimate visit to Wimbledon. The 20-time Grand Slam champion was blocked at the entrance by one of the security men who did not recognize him. The attendant asked the Basel legend to show him the membership card, players become honorary members of the Club if they win Wimbledon, but Federer didn’t have the card with him. Only the random intervention of a fan saved Federer.
