Tennis star Roger Federer to miss rest of 2020 following knee injury
Tennis superstar Roger Federer announced on Wednesday that he will stay off the court until 2021 following a third surgical procedure on his knee.
The Swiss tennis maestro, 38, said that he underwent “an additional quick arthroscopic procedure” on his right knee a few weeks ago after experiencing a setback during his rehabilitation from surgery in February.
“Now, much like I did leading up to the 2017 season, I plan to take the necessary time to be 100% ready to play at my highest level,” he wrote in a statement.
“I will be missing my fans and the tour dearly but, I will look forward to seeing everyone back on tour at the start of the 2021 season,” he added.
