Roger has decided to opt for another knee surgery
Roger Federer was forced to withdraw from the US Open and end his 2021 season due to a knee injury, for which he will be getting a third surgery in 18 months.
The Swiss' absence at Flushing Meadows is in addition to that of 2019 and 2020 champions Rafael Nadal and Dominic Thiem, who have withdrawn from the event due to foot and wrist injuries respectively. "Very, very difficult exercises, but Roger makes it look easy, like everything he does.
It's a great video but super difficult," Thiem said. "I think many people underestimate how good an athlete he is," the 27-year-old added. "I mean, you can see it in this video. How he moves and all this hand-eye coordination, it's simply amazing." Dominic Thiem further went on to claim during his Tennis Channel appearance that although fans focus on how "beautifully" Roger Federer plays the game, they tend to underestimate how good of an athlete he is.
"Many people just see how beautifully he plays. I mean, I can totally understand it," Thiem said. "But I think many underestimate what a good athlete he is and that's so much hard work. And you see how he does it in that video already, it's stunning." Roger has decided to opt for another knee surgery and added that he would be away from the courts for many months.
In fact, he will be on crutches for the initial weeks after his surgery. We wish him a speedy recovery and hope to see him on the courts soon.
