London: Has Roger Federer played his last match at Wimbledon? Probably not, but it may be his left knee that decides. The almost-35-year-old took a rare tumble onto the centre court grass during the fifth set of his semi-final loss to Milos Raonic, and was awaiting a diagnosis of the damage to the leg that needed surgery – the first of his career – in February.

Asked about the significance of the injury, Federer said after the match, which he lost 6-3, 6-7 (3-7), 4-6, 7-5, 6-3: “I don’t know yet. I don’t even want to know. I just felt not the same afterwards.

“Just I hope I didn’t hurt myself,” he added. “Then, is it a three‑day thing, is it a 24‑hour thing or is it more? I don’t know at this point. I hope it’s not so bad. I walked it off. I was able to finish. But I don’t slip a lot. I don’t ever fall down. It was a different fall for me than I’ve ever had. With the body that’s been playing up this year, I just hope I’m going to be fine. I believe I am, but I’ll know more tomorrow when I wake up.”

After 65 successive grand slams, Federer missed the French Open with back soreness, and admitted he had been worried when he arrived at the All England Club after failing to win a lead-up event on grass.

But he insisted it was his intention to return to the All England Club for an 18th senior visit next year, and not just to chase a record eighth title, and18th major. “Yes, while I’m in the tournament, it’s a dream to win my eighth. It’s not my only reason why I play tennis, just to be clear, otherwise I’ll go in a freeze box now and come out before Wimbledon next year.

“That’s not how we do it. We usually play 60 matches and we travel the world to try to achieve other things, as well. I know Wimbledon is important, but it’s not everything, everything. A lot of things that I’d like to achieve besides winning Wimbledon.”

Including the Rio Olympics, injury permitting. Yet the fact the Swiss great had completed successive five-set matches gave him heart, he said, rather than any reason to lose hope.

“The 10 sets I played the last two matches really gives me the belief that I’m (more)  match fit or tougher physically than I thought I was,” Federer said. “I never thought I could do this before the tournament started.

“Actually, it’s very encouraging for the season, hopefully for the rest of my career. Not that I was worried it was going to end somehow, but I was insecure coming into Wimbledon …  For some maybe not that clear, for others very clear. It’s been a great run for me here, I must say. I just hope with the slip I had in the fifth, I’m going to be fine tomorrow and beyond.

“I mean, curious in a weird way to find out what’s the deal now.”



Wondering, too, were those who watched Federer leave centre court, wondering how to read the body language, interpret his pause to wait for Raonic before leaving to a grand ovation.

“I was looking at centre court as in ‘thank you for the crowd, thank you for the great feeling that you gave me throughout the championships’,” he said. “I was fortunate enough to play all my matches on centre court. I don’t take that for granted.

“For me, it’s a respect towards Milos to wait for him. Like in the olden days, you walk off together, same time thank the crowd, then leave the stage for Milos really at the end. That’s what I was going through, not thinking about this might be my last Wimbledon. And, yes, I hope to be back on centre court, to be very clear for you.”
