20-time major winner Roger Federer will almost certainly skip next year’s Wimbledon. Swiss veterans will have a third knee surgery in August and will be out of court until at least next summer.
Roger needs time to start the recovery process and reach a competitive level again and wants to play again during the North American hard court swing. Federer suffered a serious knee injury in early 2020, had two surgeries in February and May, and was out of court for 13 months.
In March, the Swiss legend took action again, playing five tournaments this season, reaching the Wimbledon quarterfinals and ending the season with a third surgery. Roger saves his knees for the grass season, withdraws from Roland Garros, enters Wimbledon for the 22nd time, defeats four rivals and becomes the oldest quarter-finalist in the open-era All England Club. I did.
Federer suffered a 6-3, 7-6, 6-0 defeat to Hubert Hurkacz in 1 hour and 48 minutes, hoping to reach the final four and stay on the title course. Paul has become the second major baggering player since Rafael Nadal in the 2008 French Open final. The Swiss left nothing in the tank after the tight second set.
Roger made too many mistakes and struggled to position, so he didn’t look good on the court in the first and third sets, especially in the last set where he couldn’t keep up with his rivals. Hurkacz concludes his encounter with 36 winners and only 12 unforced errors, taking five breaks from 15 chances and staying focused when it’s most important to advance to the first major semifinals. I did.
Roger Federer will probably skip Wimbledon 2022.
Hubert took a break in the opener’s sixth game with the volley winner and was held at 15 with the service winner 5-3 to seal the opener in 28 minutes. Roger made an early break in the second set and gained confidence by overcoming several break chances in the next set to establish a lead.
Hubert pulled back the break in Round 7, clinched the tiebreaker 7-4, and moved the two sets forward to love. Roger made a few terrible calls at the tiebreaker. It took all the momentum and left nothing in the tank before Set Number 3, where Hubert immediately bageled him.
“I would be surprised to get back to action at Wimbledon next year. The results were very encouraging because I wanted to wait for the first important check before issuing an official statement. I started a long rehab process. All my heart and soul.
Still, the situation is not the same as in 2016 and we have to put up with it. Examination after the grass season revealed that my right inner meniscus was injured again. It had to be sewn together, which required a period of immobilization. Also, the doctors had the opportunity to treat my cartilage at the same time. ”
