Roger Federer posted a heartfelt message on his website, thanking his fans for all the kind words following surgery on his left knee earlier this month.
I would like to send out a heartfelt thank you for all your kind words after my injury and the surgery. It was an amazingly positive boost to receive all your cards, letters, presents and posts on the web. It really means a whole lot to me to feel your support in tough times.
It is fantastic to be moving and working out again. We’re taking it one step at a time, but I’m already really looking forward to getting back onto the court with full energy.
Thank you very much again, see you soon
Federer gave no timetable for return, but he didn’t rule out his next scheduled event at Indian Wells which begins in two weeks.
By all indications, Federer’s post came AFTER Novak Djokovic retired (and some would say “booed” off the court by fans) in Dubai today. Federer has never retired in a match in his career.
