One of the most well-known and talented tennis players of the 21st century, Roger Federer, seems will miss the rest of the 2020 tennis season due to his injured knee setback.
He made the following announcement not long ago and said that this decision is connected with the surgery on his right knee that he got in the past February.
"It seems like I had to made another one surgery on my right knee," said Federer in his official statement. "Now, just the same, as I do up at the 2017 season, I decided to take all the necessary time and become 100% ready to perform at the highest level."
"I'm really will be missing my fans, who can't see me at the rest of the 2020 season," continued he. "But, in any case, I will be really glad to see all of them from the very beginning of the 2021 year season."
Roger Federer was recovered from a similar injury of the knee right in the middle of the 2016 season. On that year, he did not start to finish the season and trained a lot before the start of the 2017 season, where he got two grand slams.
This Swiss professional tennis is now ranked as No. 4 at the world tennis players listed by the Tennis Players Association. In total, he won more than 20 grand slams.
