20-time Grand Slam champion Roger Federer has taken another positive step in his recovery from a knee surgery as the latest report indicated the Swiss might return to the practice court in three weeks.
Federer underwent two major knee surgeries in 2020 but made a comeback last year.
Unfortunately, Federer appeared in just five events last year before he announced a third knee surgery. Federer, who turned 40 last August and the same month underwent a knee surgery, left the door open on a potential return in 2022.
Last year, Federer proved that he’s still able to play at a high level, having reached the Wimbledon quarterfinal.
Federer on how his life in retirement might look
Federer has spent a lot of time at home over the last two years.
In a recent interview, Federer admitted he know has a clear picture of hos how his life might look when he retires. “The last few years have definitely shown me how it could be, how to manage a sort of slower life…
because I actually feel very, very busy [nowadays],” Federer said in his interview with Credit Suisse, according to Sportskeeda. “I wake up earlier than ever because my body doesn’t need as much rest as it used to.
I actually have more time on my hands when I wake up at 7 o’ clock in the morning. I wanna remain curious and really learn, you know…. just working hard, but still enjoy the process. “The transition will be an interesting one, my life will be different, the carpet will be pulled from under my legs sometimes, you know? Maybe I see it easier than it will be, but I’m very confident about it and that’s not because I don’t want to come back.
We’ll see how it will be.” Federer is expected to miss the entire clay season as we might see him in action in the second part of the season.
