Roger Federer Undergoes Knee Surgery and Would Miss a String of Tournaments in 2020

The 20-times grand slam winner Roger Federer has undergone surgery to resolve a longstanding knee problem.

The world No. 3 seeded would be out of action until after the French Open, he revealed on his Facebook on Thursday.

Federer underwent surgery in Switzerland on Wednesday and would miss a string of tournaments including the May 24-June 7 French Open.

“As a result, I will miss Dubai, India Wells, Bogota, Miami, and the French Open,” he said.

The 38-year-old Swiss tennis star also explained that he had intended to avoid surgery if possible but the knee problem refused to go away.

“My right knee has been bothering me for a little while,” said the world number three who reached the Roland Garros semi-finals 2019.

“I hoped it would go away, but after an examination and discussion with my team, I decided to have arthroscopic surgery in Switzerland yesterday.”

“After the surgery, the doctors confirmed that it was the right thing to have done and are very confident of a full recovery.

“I can’t wait to be back playing again soon, see you on grass!”
