Roger Federer has been hinting at a comeback as he continues his rehab following a third knee surgery. He hasn’t featured on the ATP Tour since last summer’s Wimbledon due to several injury problems.
Federer missed most of the 2020 season to have double surgery on his right knee. He played just five events in 2021 before being forced to go under the knife for a third time.
Roger had made his comeback at the Doha ATP 250 after undergoing double knee surgery in 2020. However, he cut his season short once again after Wimbledon, having suffered a setback with his knee injury during the grass court season.
Will we see Roger Federer in the 2022 Roland Garros?
Roger Federer played just 13 matches in 2021, and has been side lined since suffering a straight-sets quarter-final loss to Hubert Hurkacz at Wimbledon in July.
Federer underwent arthroscopic right knee surgeries in February 2020 and May 2020. He has played five tournaments since having those surgeries, all of which came in that season.
Roger Federer underwent two knee surgeries before going under the knife again in the summer. Speaking in September, 2021 he claimed he was in a “really good place” with the “worst behind him.
If the rehab goes according to plan then Roger is likely to return to action during the North American hard-court season with the 2022 US Open. It is unlikely that the Swiss will play in Roland Garros which is set to begin in May, 2022.
The Swiss has also confirmed that he will play at the Laver Cup, which will take place at London’s O2 Arena from September 23-25, 2022.
