According to Swiss news reports, Roger Federer injured his knee during an innocent walk in the park in Melbourne with his girls Charlene Riva and Myla Rose last week.
The injury occurred the day after Federer lost to Novak Djokovic in the Australian Open semifinals. Before his flight home, Federer took the kids for a walk and that’s when the injury occurred, according to Le Matin.
Federer underwent knee surgery on Tuesday and will be out at least a month forcing him out of Rotterdam and his title defense in Dubai. And he’ll likely miss Indian Wells and Miami which isn’t on his schedule.
