Roger Federer hopes to play Wimbledon “one more time”

The 20 times Grand Slam champion has not appeared in any official tennis event since a year.


Roger Federer hopes to play at Wimbledon again despite his knee injury that has forced the 20-time Grand Slam champion to be sidelined for a year. The last time he appeared in any tournament was in the quarterfinals of the Grand Slam in England where he was defeated by Hubert Hurkacz of Poland.

It is for the first time since his debut in 1999 that the Swiss legendary player is not playing at the tournament where he has won eight Grand Slams, a record in the men’s singles category.

Meanwhile, Federer was seen visiting his second home, Wimbledon today in a black suit and sunglasses that took all the attention of the tennis world. The player talked about his comeback and his wish to play at the tournament where he has bagged the singles titles eight times. “I hope I can come back one more time. I’ve missed it here,” Federer said, reported AFP News Agency as he attended the special event to commemorate the Centre Court’s 100th birthday.
