After losing to Hubert Hurkacz in the Wimbledon quarter-finals, Roger Federer had to deal with a new knee problem. The Swiss champion has in fact missed the Tokyo Olympics and the Masters 1000 in Toronto and Cincinnati in order not to risk worsening his condition.
A few weeks before the start of the US Open, there are still many doubts related to the participation of Federer, who in a recent interview with the newspaper Blick explained: “I’m currently on vacation and it is true that I have not played or trained for a long time. cause of the knee. After Wimbledon I had to stop all activities because of this problem, this week I will meet the doctors and the rest of the team to understand the situation, I don’t know what exactly is going on and how we can go forward.”
The result of all this will be a new surgery on his right knee, which, as Roger himself admitted, will cost him an absence of many months from the ATP Tour, with very dark prospects for his eventual return to the court. Waiting for the new surgery, Federer has decided to have fun playing table tennis. The 20-time Grand Slam champion posted a nice video on his Instagram account and wrote: “Table tennis with my friends.”
