After Second Right Knee Procedure, Roger Federer Won’t Play Again In 2020
by Staff | June 10th, 2020, 10:31 am

Roger Federer officially ended his 2020 season, assuming there even is a finish. The Swiss who underwent right knee surgery in February, announced that he had a second procedure on that knee which will keep him off the tour for the remained of 2020.

“A few weeks ago, having experienced a setback during my initial rehabilitation, I had to have an additional quick arthroscopic procedure on my right knee,” Federer posted on social media. “Now, much like I did leading up to the 2017 season, I plan to take the necessary time to be 100% ready to play at my highest level.

“I will be missing my fans the tour dearly but, I will look forward to seeing everyone back on tour at the start of the 2021 season.”

Federer played just one event in his shortened 2020 season, reaching the semifinals at the Australian Open where he lost to Novak Djokovic.

Federer turn 39 in about two months. This will be his biggest layoff of his career when he does return.

skeezer Says:

bummer, but considering what impact covid has made on the tour, hey, not so bad for Fed to be going through these recoveries from injury.

Maybe this will give you the answer. Rugby league is going for the last 3 weeks without the fans and players are getting stuck into each other like there is no tomorrow, us fans are more than happy to watch them on TV, check it for yourself, they even faked sound of the fans:

BTW, They will start to let the fans back in July, gradually.

Hello to All,

Hope all Tennis Xers are well.

I was not affected economically by the pandemic, was a lucky one , whoo could work from home..I can also say, I even enjoyed a bit the isolation, but still, I am missing a lot watching tennis matches. Tennis without spectators in the stands would also help :)

Greetings to all and stay health!

Van Persie Says:

Hi WB,

Thank you for sharing. Hehe, no social distancing in the crowds lol 😂

I am very confused with this virus, sometimes I think the restriction measures were overreacted, sometimes Ibthink the measures were necessary…

More curious to see how thebsituation will be in autumn, when I am sure that Corona will strike again, and all the countries are economicaly weakend bybthe first wave
Hope I am wrong an dit will not happen again with the same intensity.

So nice to see JJ playing again 🙂
Miss also watching Nole… he started the year soo good.
