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.
