Legendary Tennis Player Roger Federer will not take part in the upcoming US Open as he needs more time to recover from his Knee Surgery as the Swiss Great announced that the Surgery was done in order to prolong his Tennis Career.
He announced his exclusion in a video he recently posted on his Instagram account said that doctors suggested him to take rest for few more tournaments as that is the only way for him to prolong his Tennis career.
“I’ll be on crutches for many weeks and then also out of the game for many months,” Federer said.
“It’s going to be difficult of course in some ways but at the same time I know it’s the right thing to do because I want to be healthy and I want to be running around later as well.”
Federer underwent Knee Surgery in 2020 which resulted in more than one year of rehabilitation before he made a return to action in March, some 13 months after his exit from the Australian Open which is regarded as one of the best tennis tournaments in the world.
He has played in the process in a few of the tournaments including All England Club where he reached the Quarterfinals but lost in a set against Poland Hubert Hurkacz was looking strong in that tournament until his campaign ended in that tournament.
“I want to give myself a glimmer of hope also to return to the tour in some shape or form,” said Federer.
At the end he never forget to thanks his Fans for the outstanding support that he has received in all these years from his Loyal fans.
“You guys are always incredible, you always think of me,” Federer said. “Some of you suffer with me, some of you just wish me the best and want to see me back on court or see me smile. I am doing OK so I appreciate that.
“And I’ll update you as I move along with my rehab. I wish you all the best and I’ll check in with you soon.”
