Roger Federer won’t return until 2021 after second surgery, news, update, US Open, tennis

Tennis icon Roger Federer has gone under the knife for a second time this year after a ‘setback’ in rehabilitation for an ongoing knee concern.

The major blow will mean he misses the remainder of the 2020 campaign, but the Swiss maestro has promised to return next year despite turning 39 in August.

The world number four has not played since losing in the Australian Open semi-finals at the hands of Novak Djokovic in January. He underwent surgery the following month on his right knee, but has now revealed his recovery did not go to plan.

Federer took to social media with the devastating news.
