Roger Federer has said that he is facing no setback after his recent keen surgery and is recovering well. The tennis start had added to say that his comeback is not yet in sight but will be doing everything possible to get himself back on the court.
Federer has been sidelined from the tennis action on and off for more than a year now after undergoing two surgeries on his right knee after having played in just 13 matches. He underwent a third operation after his quarter-final defeat in July at Wimbledon. “I’m doing very well; the rehab is progressing step by step,” said Federer as in an event in Zurich, reports AFP.
The 40-year-old Swiss is currently ranked 9th in the world and has admitted that his return to professional tour is a challenge. Federer hopes to get back to fitness training as soon as possible but accepts that “that still takes little patients”. Roger Federer had withdrawn from this years’ French Open after the fourth round and also bowed out from Wimbledon with a loss to Poland’s Hubert Hurkacz 6-3,7-6,6-0.
The 20-time Grand Slam winner was the chief instigator at the Laver Cup which is an annual tournament between six top players from Europe and six top players from the rest of the world. It commences its fourth edition currently. The 2021 edition will be held from Friday to Saturday in Boston without Federer who will only be able to view the game from a distance.
