Roger Federer's knee condition: new important updates

During an event organized by his sponsor Uniqlo in Tokyo, Roger Federer revealed that his knee is not yet in the best condition. The Swiss Maestro told: "For the moment, I am a little reluctant to play other sports. My right knee is not very well and I have to be cautious.

I have to wait a few months and see how the situation evolves. Now it's time to travel. My family and I are always delighted to go out and plan the holidays well in advance. I would love to take my children to Africa. In the past, holidays always had to be something relaxing after many months of playing tennis.

Now that I'm retired, we can also organize a little more adventurous holidays." The Swiss also talked about his future: "I don't want to train for the moment. Then if some young Swiss talent should emerge and they need my support, I would not hesitate to give them some advice.

I am living a new phase in my life, in which has lightened all the weight of the routine as a player."

Federer after the farewell

Roger Federer is enjoying his life after playing his last official match on 23 September 2022.

The Swiss has said goodbye to tennis played at the Laver Cup, the exhibition he founded in 2017. In the evocative setting of the O2 Arena in London , the former world number 1 has joined forces with his longtime rival Rafael Nadal to face Americans Frances Tiafoe and Jack Sock.

At the end of the match, the 20-time Grand Slam champion received a splendid tribute that thrilled everyone. Fans were hoping that the King would be able to play a few tournaments in 2023, but Roger realized he could no longer compete at the highest level.

His right knee has given him no respite for the past two and a half years, forcing him to undergo three operations. The 41-year-old from Basel experienced a timid comeback last year, playing just 13 official matches and stopping again after Wimbledon.
