Roger Federer 'highly unlikely' to make Australian Open comeback with more doubts raised

Ruling the 40-year-old out of the upcoming Australian Open, Woodbridge also doubted his credentials at next year’s French Open.

He continued: “I don’t think we’re going to see him in Australia [in 2022]. He’s not going to win at the French Open, and he’s 40 years of age.”

“I think Roger’s going to come out and play some nice matches, but winning seven matches to win a slam, I don’t think we’re going to see that.”

Having branded the last 12 months as a “really interesting period and a change over for tennis,” the hugely-successful former doubles player also cast doubts over Serena Williams’ chances of winning another Grand Slam title, but had more hope for her over Federer.

“You can probably throw Serena Williams in that very similar situation,” he said.

“But Serena is more likely [to win another Grand Slam] I feel than Roger.”
