Roger Federer informed that the right knee will be operated for the third time. This intervention will mean that, at least, he will miss the rest of the season and will not compete until 2022.
Since he played the Australian Open in 2020 and suffered the aforementioned injury, between operations and rehabilitation, Roger has played a very small number of tournaments, compared to what he did years ago.
The privileged competitions that received it were, from 2021: Doha, Geneva, Roland Garros, Halle and Wimbledon. But in all of them he was never able to reach a final, an instance in which His Majesty has had us accustomed throughout his career.
Their 12 games in this period of play ended with a balance of 9-4 in favor. The only losses were to Nikoloz Basilashvili (Doha), Pablo Andujar (Geneva), Felix Auger-Aliassime (Halle) and Hubert Hurkacz (Wimbledon). It should also be noted that at Roland Garros he retired before his match against Matteo Berrettini to take care of his body.
Although the Swiss’s return date is uncertain, it is expected that by 2022 he will be able to return to the courts and resume the rhythm of the game to which he is accustomed and, why not, continue raising trophies to expand his history.
