If he did appear in the entry list published this week by the organizers of the Australian Open, Roger Federer will finally not be in Melbourne next February.
Unfortunately, it was to be feared: forced to have two right knee operations in 2020, Roger Federer will not be on the first major meeting of the 2021 season. Postponed from February 8 to 21, the next Australian Open will be played without the maestro from Basel, still recovering.
” Roger has decided not to play at the 2021 Australian Open. He has made great progress with his knee and condition in recent months. However, after consulting with his team, he decided that the best decision for him in the long run was to return to tennis after the Australian Open. », Says his agent Tony Godsick to the AP agency, relayed by Eurosport.
“Rodreur” has not played on the circuit since his semi-final in Melbourne against Novak Djokovic last winter. He is currently preparing his return to competition in Dubai. And for his fans, it will take at least two more months to see him again at work.
