The Swiss icon has announced on social media, that he will not be playing until the grass court season and consequently will be missing Dubai, Indian Wells and Miami as well as, for the fourth time in his career, the French Open.

“My right knee has been bothering me for a little while,” Federer revealed.

“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 procedure, the doctors confirmed that it was the right thing to have done and are very confident of a full recovery.
“I am grateful for everyone’s support. I can’t wait to be back playing again soon, see you on the grass.”

In February 2016, Federer underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left knee and after Wimbledon that year did not play again in order to completely rehabilitate and recover and when he did in January 2017, he collected his 18th Grand Slam title by winning the Australian Open.

That year he pocketed seven titles including Wimbledon, and three Masters events and successfully defended his Aussie crown the following January.

On his return this time, he will be nudging 30 years-of-age but invigorated as he attempts to increase on his tally of 20 grand slams at Wimbledon.
