After that, he caught up with a knee injury and announced that he would return before 2021. Earlier this month, news broke out that Federer will miss the Australian Open 2021. He had undergone 2 knee surgeries recently.
Some good news eventually came up telling fans that the Swiss Maestro has returned to his short training sessions. His coach Severin Luthi also confirmed in an interview that after the Australian Open 2021, there are chances that the 39-year-old will be fully fit again.
Recently, the 20-time Grand Slam winner sang the Beatles’ song ‘With a Little Help From My Friends’. It is apparent that the legend loves singing. He even surprised everyone when he made a virtual appearance at the the final of US Open 2020 final.
Players like Roger Federer are born once in a generation. Apart from his gameplay and performance, the Swiss continues to impress his fans by his simplicity and dedication. Playing at 39 is not easy. Competing with the fitness of a 20-25-year-old makes it even more difficult. Yet, Federer is set to return. Hopefully, fans can watch him winning more Grand Slams when he returns.
