Tennis icon Roger Federer hung up his racquet in September last year. However, it will probably remain in the most prestigious tournament in the world – even if only on TV.

    As “The Telegraph” reports, Federer is currently busy negotiating with the television station “BBC” about participation as a TV expert at the upcoming Wimbledon Championships. The 41-year-old already signaled his interest in a place in front of the camera when he left the big tennis stage. In this way, he would remain in his favorite sport.

    At “BBC” Federer would succeed Boris Becker. The German tennis legend will not return to London after his deportation. “We currently have no plans to work with Boris Becker,” a spokeswoman for the broadcaster told “Sport Bild”.

    Is Roger Federer represented twice at Wimbledon?

    Roger Federer just can’t seem to get enough of Wimbledon. The record winner is not only negotiating with the “BBC”, but also with “ESPN”. At the most prestigious tennis tournament in the world, the two TV stations are planning a collaboration this year that includes Federer.

    For example, the world star could comment live for the British on one day and analyze selected games for “ESPN” on another day. However, Federer does not want to let his non-stop work spoil his fun at Wimbledon. The Maestro allegedly insists on enough breaks to savor the atmosphere on the “sacred lawn”.

    Federer connects Wimbledon with his first victory in a Grand Slam. The triumph in 2003 was to be followed by seven more. At no other Grand Slam did “King Roger” triumph more often. He celebrated his last success at Wimbledon in 2017 when he swept the Croatian Marin Cilic off the field in three sets.
