Swiss tennis maestro Roger Federer will not play at the Australian Open and has even cast doubts over his participation at Wimbledon 2022. Federer underwent surgery on his right knee in February 2020 and May 2020. Federer has played in five tournaments since those surgeries, all of which came this season. “I will be able to resume running quietly in January and resume sessions on the court with complex support in March or April. I will be incredulously surprised if I play again at Wimbledon already. Wound up this summer The decision was made to sew my meniscus, which involves some downtime,” quoted Federer as saying.

“My ambition is to see what I am capable of for the last time. I also wish I could say goodbye in my own way and on the tennis court. So I give my all to my rehabilitation,” he said.

Earlier, Federer’s coach Ivan Lubii also spoke about the 20-time Grand Slam champion’s exit from the Australian Open.

“I think the Australian Open is not a real possibility right now,” Lubicic told Stats Perform.


“I think there are very few chances, he is still recovering and knowing that, he wants to make sure that he can play and be 100 percent to win the tournament. He will go step by step because he 40 years old now and he needs to be patient. He may not recover as fast as he used to.”

Last month, Roger Federer dropped out of the top-10 of the ATP rankings. It was the first time since January 2017 that the 20-time Grand Slam champion dropped out of the top-10 rankings in men’s tennis.
