Roger Federer has recently started rehabilitation after undergoing his third knee surgery. The Swiss champion played his last match at Wimbledon 2021, where he was eliminated in the quarter-finals by a wild Hubert Hurkacz. The Pole's achievements at Indian Wells slid the Swiss Maestro out of the Top 10 for the first time since 2017.
The 20-time Grand Slam champion was seen walking on crutches during the Laver Cup in Boston and there is no firm plan for the his return to the tour. The former world number 1 has played the pittance of 13 official matches this season, totaling nine wins and four losses.
A far too thin booty for a legend of his caliber, so much so that many have given up hope of seeing a competitive Federer at the highest levels. In March 2021, the 40-year-old from Basel became the new tourism ambassador to Switzerland.
Recently, a video was released in which Roger reveals a hidden feature of the country about him.
Federer is expected to return to the court in 2022
Roger said: "I have been all over the world during my tennis career, but my favorite place has never changed.
I am obviously talking about my beloved Switzerland. I miss my country so much when I travel. There is an aspect of tennis that helps me remember Switzerland." "When we sit on the bench, Switzerland comes to mind. You can find benches everywhere in my country, they represent the right place for a perfect break in the middle of nature."
he added. Federer also looked into his future on the tour: "I have to take my time, I can't afford to rush things. I think the worst is behind me, but there is no clear plan for my return. First I have to walk well again, then I will start focusing on the tennis movements. I'm really happy, I have nothing to complain about." The Swiss should close 2021 around the 18th ATP position.
