Roger Federer out of Australian Open and would be ‘extremely surprised’ if fit for Wimbledon
The Independent says Roger Federer has confirmed he will not feature in next year’s Australian Open – and says he would be “extremely surprised” if he plays at Wimbledon.
In an interview with Swiss publication Le Matin, the 40-year-old added that he does not anticipate returning to competition until next summer.
The 20-time grand slam winner is recovering from a series of knee operations.
Federer, who has not played since he lost his quarter-final match against Hubert Hurkacz at Wimbledon on 7 July, said: “I will be able to resume running quietly in January and resume sessions on the court with complex support in March or April.
