Roger Federer announced through his Twitter account a few weeks ago that he had undergone surgery on his right knee: "My right knee has bothered me in the last period. I was hoping it would go away but, after an examination and a comparison with my staff, we decided to proceed on the way arthroscopic.
After the surgery the doctors confirmed that it was the right thing to do, they are very confident of my full recovery. As a result I will skip the tournaments in Dubai, Indian Wells, Bogota, Miami and Roland Garros. I am grateful for your support, I can't wait to go back to play soon, see you on the grass!".
The Swiss Maestro will come back for the grass-swing. This is not the first time that Federer returns from surgery or from a negative period. It happened after his bad 2013: between 2014 and 2015 he won 11 titles, including two ATP Masters 1000, the Davis Cup 2014 and he played and lost three Slam finals against Novak Djokovic (Wimbledon 2014 and 2015 and the US Open 2015 ).
In 2016 Roger played perhaps his worst season, not even winning a title for the first time in his career and skipping the last part of the year due to an injury. RHe came back in 2017 to the Australian Open, unexpectedly winning the title in the final against Rafael Nadal.
In 2017 and in 2018 Federer won three Slams (Australian Open 2017 and 2018 and Wimbledon 2017) and a total of 11 titles. His 2019 was a good season, with the final at Wimbledon, but after the Australian Open 2020 semifinal lost against Djokovic here is the news of the surgery on his right knee.
For Roger Federer it will be the third come back in the past seven years: will it still be a positive turn for him?
