The US Open will not have Federer for the second year in a row

Roger Federer shook the tennis world. With the announcement that he launched on his social networks that he will have surgery on his right knee, the Swiss made it clear that he does not know when he will compete again. That is why the US Open will again be missed.

The last Grand Slam of the year, the one in which the former world number one was able to lift five times, will not be able to count on the stellar presence that Federer represents. And it is curious. For the first time in his career, since his debut in the contest in 2000, he will not contest it for the second consecutive year and it will be the third edition that he has missed in the last 21 years.

In addition to this 2021, he was also absent in 2020 due to a second operation on his right knee that did not allow him to recover in time. The other year he was not present was during 2016. At that time it was also to recover from a meniscus operation.

In the major New York City lifted the trophy for the first time in 2004 after beating Lleyton Hewitt in the final. Later he would win it in 2005 against Andre Agassi, 2006 against Andy Roddick, 2007 against Novak Djokovic and 2008 against Andy Murray.
