Tennis: “Tennis still has to wait a little longer”, Roger Federer hopes to return by the end of September

Roger Federer gave some additional indications on the date of his return to the tennis courts. “Tennis still has to wait a little longer,” he said Saturday on the Swiss SRF channel, although he is still looking for a return for the Laver Cup at the end of September, after more than a year without competition. The Swiss icon at the Twenty Trophy in Grand Chelem “plays time to time” with his four children, but “things are progressing slowly” after his third right knee operation in the space of a year and a half.

“I was operated on at the end of August, and by then we were already eating it. I am always asked: + So, how does it present itself? +. And each time I have to answer that it will take some more time, ”he told SRF. The former World No. 1 could “already do a lot more”, but “currently focus on (his) body condition, so that he doesn’t have to overcharge”, going to the gym “Five to six times a week.”

Current World 50th

“I just have to be patient, and I’m making constant progress,” continued Bâlois, hoping to have “a lot of information in the coming months” about the evolution of his physical condition. Federer is still looking forward to a return to the courts during the Laver Cup in London (September 23-25) and then to his hometown on October 24 and 30, as the organizers of the Basel tournament had announced at the end of April.

The Swiss champion, winner of 103 trophies in his more than twenty years of career, and no longer six against 2020 and thirteen in 2021. Absent from courts since Wimbledon 2021, he currently ranks 50th in the world.
