The star tennis player Roger Federer, who will be on bed rest the following year is planning to make a comeback to the tennis court with the upcoming Australia Hopman cup and Australian cup. Federer missed the U.S. Open and Rio Olympics 2016 due to a knee injury.
He underwent a knee operation for the same, now he is in course of recovery and is expected to announce his arrival on the court next year.
“I don’t see it as the end of something. I see it as a beginning to something I’m working for, and when I come back to the Hopman Cup and then to the Australian Open … that’s what I’m working for now,
“I’m doing well and I’ve been training as much as I possibly could to re-strengthen my quad and my body to keep it in shape,” said Federer, who had surgery on his left knee in February.
“So when I head back into the gym for full on fitness in the next couple of months, then I’m ready for it. I just hope to be super strong when I come back in January.” said the 17-time grand slam winner while speaking at a news conference.
Next year he will team up with his arch-rival Rafael Nadal in the inaugural Laver Cup which will be played next year in September 2017.
