Current World NO.5,Roger Federer to miss US open

The 40-year-old , a 20-time Grand Slam champion, had two knee tasks last year.

In a video post on Instagram, Federer said he trusted the medical procedure would give him “a promising sign” to get back to activity.

20-times Major victor needs to resign according to his own preferences, and he is prepared to pass another recuperation interaction and play sound once more.

Along these lines, Federer will skirt the US Open and the Laver Cup, and it doesn’t know when he would have the option to contend once more. Roger worked really hard in 2019, winning the Masters 1000 title and squandering two match focuses versus Novak Djokovic in that epic Wimbledon last.

Following one more great outcome at the Australian Open last year, Federer reported knee issues and went through the main medical procedure in February, with another coming in May. Starting from the very beginning at 39, Roger hit the training court again in October, chipping away at his actual shape and feeling prepared to contend in March this year.

Following 13 months, Federer stepped on the court in Doha and beat Daniel Evans for a triumphant return. Roger enjoyed another reprieve and played again in Geneva and Paris on mud, acquiring three successes in Paris and pulling out in front of the fourth-round conflict to safeguard energy for his darling grass swing.

The Swiss encountered the soonest Halle exit against Felix Auger-Aliassime and went to Wimbledon for his 22nd mission at the All England Club.

“I want to give myself a glimmer of hope to return to the tour in some shape or form,” added Federer.

“I am realistic, don’t get me wrong. I know how difficult it is at my age to go through another surgery. I will try it. I want to be healthy, I want to be running around.”

He had already pulled out of the Tokyo Olympics to rest his knee.

Federer withdrew from this year’s French Open after reaching the fourth round and was knocked out in the quarter-finals of Wimbledon, a tame 6-3, 7-6 (7/4), 6-0 loss to Poland’s Hubert Hurkacz.

That defeat was only his 14th at the All England Club in 119 matches, and the first time he had been beaten in the tournament in straight sets since a first-round exit at the hands of Mario Ancic in 2002.

It was also the first time he had lost a set 6-0 at Wimbledon and just the third time at a Slam.

After turning 40 last weekend, Federer said he was learning to adjust to the fact that recovering from niggles takes two weeks rather than two days.

“It was different before. The questions were simple: what is my place in the ranking? What will my next tournament be?”, he told Blick newspaper.

“Today, it’s more difficult: how do I feel when I start training again? What are my goals? How to reconcile all this with the family? What does the rest of the team say?

“I am much more enthusiastic than before, the attitude is different. It’s really completely different from 10 years ago.”
