Also, Roger Federer will not be able to participate in the upcoming Laver Cup 2021.

I’m looking forward to everything that happens to me coming.” said the star. “When you come back from an injury, every day is a better day. So it is an exciting time.”
Roger Federer on being asked about not being able to play in the Laver Cup this year said “It hurts me a lot”. “I knew that at some point in time I will not be able to be there but I did not know that this would be the year,” mentioned Roger.
“I’m recovering well. Rehab is going really good, I’ve had no setbacks. Everyday is a better day, I’m feeling strong and excited for what’s to come.”
