Roger Federer: ‘I will do everything I can to get back to the top’
Roger Federer has said he will do ‘everything that he can’ to get back to the top of tennis following knee surgery.
The 39-year-old has played just two matches in 15 months after requiring double-knee surgery in 2020.
He appeared to be ready to return to the ATP Tour in March when he played Doha, but he immediately retreated back into practice, and he has not played again since.
However, he has plans to return to competition in Geneva this month ahead of Roland Garros, and he has vowed to leave no stone unturned in his bid to return to his former glories.
“I will do everything I can to get back to the top after my surgery and the long pause due to that,” Roger Federer said in an interview with Schweizer Familie.
“As long as I am happy and healthy I will continue to play. Now, before you even ask me for how long, I must tell you, I don’t know, honestly.”
