Roger Federer to go through a third knee surgery and is expected to be out of the scene for many months”
Roger Federer has revealed that he will be going ahead with yet another surgery on his knee in the coming days, which will keep him away from the game for “a long time”.
Federer posted a video on Instagram, where he explained the reasoning behind his decision to have a third knee surgery.
Needless to say, the Swiss maestro has, with this revelation, also ruled himself out of this year’s edition of the US Open.
Roger Federer first got his right knee injured during the 2020 Australian Open, for which he underwent surgery. The 20-time grand slam champion then suffered a setback within a couple of months of recuperation, which required a 2nd procedure.
After that it took Federer several months to regain his fitness, and he made his return at the Qatar Open this year. Everything appeared to be going good for the Swiss over the next couple of months, but he injured the knee again during his Wimbledon quarterfinal defeat to Hubert Hurkacz.
Now it is obvious that the damage is much more severe than most people initially imagined. Federer stated in his video that he would require to be on props for “many weeks” after the surgery, essentially ruling him out for a lengthy period.
No reason why Roger Federer won’t come back after a 3rd knee surgery, he still has the “will and energy” to keep playing: Marc Rosset
Former Olympic champion Marc Rosset is of the opinion that Roger Federer’s return to the tour centers on how well his third surgery goes. Rosset reckons that Federer surpassed hopes at Wimbledon and that he still has the yearning to keep playing and winning. In short Roger is not done yet!
