“Roger Federer’s body needs more time to recover”

Roger Federer, who was operated on for the third time on his right knee in the past year and a half, will not be able to start running again until January. His comeback to the tour should not take place before summer 2022, as the maestro recently admitted in an interview.

His participation in Wimbledon next year is highly questionable. On the Today Show, Craig Tiley, director of the Australian Open, analyzed King Roger’s situation. Craig Tiley said: “First of all I would like to say that we have been in constant contact with Roger Federer.

We have been friends for many years and we love to see him play. He is recovering from knee surgery and we must remember that he is 40 years old. His body needs more time to recover than it did 10-15 years ago.

We just know that at some point he will play again. When will we see him on the pitch again? I think it will be some time. He’ll pick up the bat in March-April. ”

Tiley also shared his opinion on Peng’s case

Craig also turned his attention to the story of Peng Shuai, the traces of which have been lost after allegations of sexual assault against a former exponent of the Chinese government.

“We at Tennis Australia have asked both the ATP and WTA for information, it’s a really bad story. We’ll use all the resources we can to help. We sincerely hope she’s fine.”

The news has been in the air for a few weeks, but now it’s official. Only players who have been vaccinated against COVID-19 can take part in the Australian Open 2022. At this point it is legitimate to ask what Novak Djokovic will do, who did not want to reveal his vaccination status and who has spoken out in favor of freedom of choice.

In the event he pulls out of Melbourne, the world number 1 would lose the chance of rising to 21 Grand Slams by winning his favorite tournament. Rafael Nadal is expected to take part in the Happy Slam, while Roger Federer announced a few days ago that he will return next summer.
