The diocese of Basel, pray for Roger Federer's knees – and you?

Corona, Corona, Corona: and So it goes now in days. And this is bad. Also, because other national emergency forget Roger Federer knees:. Until after the clay season in June, Federer will have to pause.

Can you imagine that? I don't. I even think that Switzerland lives up to its biggest crisis since 1985. At that time, the whole country suffered with Pirmin Zurbriggen, who was injured in his victory in Kitzbühel at the knee and the front of the world Cup in Bormio.

From the "knee of the Nation" was in the Winter of 1985, the speech. And by a "miracle", as Zurbriggen three weeks after his injury but still a gold medal won. Zurbriggen had problems with his meniscus – like Federer. But the Situation today is nevertheless incomparable, I think.

Federer had led us out of a desert of doubt

the NZZ around the Australian Open – after two Comebacks of Federer's "resurrection" written. Well, it was in a gloss. The religious vocabulary is appropriate here, but actually. Because Federer has led Switzerland in the last few years, from a desert of doubt, as Moses weiland the people of Israel. Finally there's someone we can worship in all respects unrestrained. And to heck now be over, even before Federer has given his resignation?

This must not be. We need help from above. The signs are not bad at all: "You know, I believe in miracles," said Federer after his "resurrection" in Australia. "I hope that the love of God is behind me and not against me", should Federer have already said years ago.

We can reassure you: at Least the Catholic Church is fully behind Federer. "Prayers to release, in any case, positive and in this case, healing energy", writes clear, the bishopric of Basel, on request, "that we pray for Roger Federer!"

Wonderful! And all can join in. Those that are struggling with similar pain as the tennis God. After all, for a prayer you have to kneel. "You can pray how you want, it just has to be with dignity," writes the bishopric of Basel. Well, you know, what you have to do.
