Roger Federer has officially withdrawn from the Australian Open. Speculation about the number one in the world before missing the first Grand Slam tournament of the season, as Federer’s agent and CEO of his management team TEAM8, Tony Godsick, confirmed today in a statement to AP. Has become a reality.
“Roger has decided not to play the 2021 Australian Open-read the statement-he has made strong progress in the past few months with his knees and his health, but with his team. After discussions, he decided that in the long run it would be best to return to competitive tennis after the Australian Open.
The recovery from Swiss knee surgery is on track, but the first Grand Slam of the season seems to be still premature for Federer. Federer’s return is expected to occur later in the season. “This week we’ll start discussing tournaments starting in late February-following Godsick-and we’ll start scheduling the rest of the year.”

Organizers and fans could see Swiss appear 22 times in a row as the Australian Open was delayed, the next edition was pushed down to the ATP calendar line and was scheduled to start on February 8. I was hoping that there would be. In a tournament.
The decision was difficult, but it seems that Severin Luti and Ivan Ljubicic, as well as Federer’s fitness coach Pierre Paganini, shared their views. Immediately after co-starring with Rafael Nadal, Bill Gates and Trevor Noah at an exhibition event in Cape Town, South Africa last February, the Swiss underwent arthroscopic knee surgery.
Prior to that, he made his final official appearance on the Australian Open tour, reaching the semi-finals and losing straight to final champion Novak Djokovic. Federer’s schedule will be announced in the coming weeks, but it’s already clear that the former world number one will be back on tour after the Australian Open.
This year again, the Swiss have three more chances to win their 21st Grand Slam title, looking at their 9th career title in the championship.
