The most successful tennis player in Grand Slam history, Roger Federer, has announced that he will be out of action after undergoing another arthroscopic surgery on his right knee. In a tweet, Federer said that he expects to be back in action at the start of 2021 season.
Federer was beaten in the semi-final of the Australian Open by Novak Djokovic earlier this year. No other grand slam has taken place this year as all tennis matches and tournaments were halted in March due to the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.
Federer, with 20 grand slam titles, is the most successful men’s player in the history of professional tennis. His great rivals Rafael Nadal (19) and Djokovic (17) have been closing in on his mark.
