Federer on the court to train: come back at Wimbledon or US Open?

Roger Federer was forced to stop again and decided to undergo a new knee operation, after Wimbledon 2021. The Swiss champion's goal was to compete already in the first part of 2022, but things did not go that way. The hope of all tennis fans is to see Federer back on the court at Wimbledon 2022, but only time will give him the answers.

The 20-time Grand Slam champion is on a long journey of rehabilitation and posted a very encouraging video on his Instagram account. Federer has in fact shared some splendid images; images that portray him on an indoor tennis court intent on hitting the ball with his forehand.

And finally, because the last two seasons have not been good for Roger. The former world number 1 stepped onto the court with a dropper, having had to deal with a serious right knee injury. Suffice it to say that the Swiss Maestro played just 13 official matches in 2021, collecting nine wins and four losses.

A far too meager budget for a legend of his caliber, only partially mitigated by the quarterfinals achieved at Wimbledon. A few weeks after the Championships, the King announced that he had suffered a knee relapse and had to operate for the third time.

The 20-time Grand Slam champion hopes to return to the tour in late summer or early autumn, perhaps for the Laver Cup, which will take place at London's O2 Arena in late September. The 40-year-old from Basel was overtaken by Rafael Nadal in the all-time Grand Slam standings, while Novak Djokovic stole his record for weeks at the top of the ATP rankings.

Roger Federer expressed his opinion on the Ukrainian war

Roger Federer is intensifying the recovery phase to try to return soon to play tournaments on the ATP Tour, has joined the gesture of other players and famous people.

Among others there is also the former Russian tennis player Maria Sharapova, who in recent days had declared via Instagram to fans and the whole world: "I am making a donation to the crisis relief fund of Save the Children, an organization who works tirelessly to provide food, water and aid kits to support the needy."

Meanwhile, many fans are waiting for the return to the ranks of the Swiss, who is currently in doubt to participate in the prestigious Wimbledon event (which made him famous). "I am grateful for all the minutes I have been able to spend with my fans, who show me incredible support in every corner of the world.

The tournaments I played last year made me realize that my career as an athlete has not yet come to an end." Meanwhile, The Swiss Maestro expressed his opinion on the ongoing war between Russia and Ukraine, which has taken the world stage for a few weeks.

The Swiss talked about it through a message posted on his social channels: "My family and I are horrified to see the photos from Ukraine and heartbroken for the innocent people who have been severely affected. We support peace,"mhe wrote.

The 40-year-old native of Basel announced that he would actively support the people: "We will provide assistance to those in need of care, some 6 million Ukrainian children are out of school and we know that it is a very critical time to provide access to education.

We would like to support them in dealing with this extremely traumatic experience. We will therefore support War Child Holland with a donation of $ 500,000 to establish access to continuing education for Ukrainian children."
