Basel. Roger Federer will miss the US Open after a third operation on his right knee, and hopes of a comeback are slim despite months away from tennis. Federer said this information through a video message on Instagram. He said, I have seen many doctors and taken all kinds of information. I injured my knee more during the grasscourt sessions and Wimbledon.
He told me that surgery was necessary and I decided to follow his opinion. I will be on crutches for a few weeks and away from tennis for a few months. 20-time Grand Slam champion Federer, 40, admitted his career was probably over but said he was undergoing knee treatment with the aim of another comeback.
Withdrawn from the French Open
He said, I want to be healthy. I want to give hope that I can return to the tour. I am a realist. I know how hard it is at this age. After the 2020 Australian Open, Federer was away from tennis for almost a year.
