Twenty-time Grand Slam winner Roger Federer rewrote the history books in the sport. The manner in which he commands the tennis court is noteworthy. There are certain feats in the game which seem unmatchable. He held the World No. 1 ranking for 237-consecutive weeks.
Over the years, the Swiss ace is known for his calm demeanor on the court and off it too. However, there was an instance in which Federer lost his cool and used an offensive word during a match. It was a rare instance in which the eight-time Wimbledon winner allowed his emotions to get the better of him.
Roger Federer Loses Cool and Uses an Offensive Word
During his semifinal match against Andy Murray at the 2013 Australian Open, Roger used the ‘F-Bomb’ towards the end of the second set against his opponent and it can be seen in the video. The match ended with Federer losing in five sets. Andy lost in the final to Serbia’s Novak Djokovic.
Coming to the present date, Roger decided to skip the Australian Open this year. Following two surgeries on his knee in 2020, Roger did not achieve full recovery in time for the first Major of 2021. The Swiss superstar hasn’t played competitive tennis since his semifinal loss at the Australian Open 2020.
On the other hand, Andy was eager to be part of this year’s Australian Open but got infected with the COVID-19 virus. Tennis Australia made it mandatory for players to undergo a 14-day quarantine period before being able to step on the practice courts. Due to this policy, Andy isn’t part of the first Major of the new season.
