Federer’s sponsor Uniqlo recently put up a photo of the Swiss star wearing one of his famous hats with the ‘RF’ logo in what appears to be the start of his training session.

We’re glad to see Roger Federer back to training with his signature RF cap. We also want to wish everyone a happy Holiday season. Perhaps this red cap can be a last minute gift to your loved ones”. 

After a third knee surgery post the quarter-final defeat at Wimbledon, Federer chose to skip the Laver Cup but attended his event as a spectator at the last minute to cheer for team Europe. In a recent interview to Swiss-German newspaper Tages-Anzeiger, Federer talked about his comeback plans.

Federer talked about his comeback in an interview last month

I would be incredibly surprised if I were to play again already at Wimbledon (2022). Australia is not an option at all. But that’s no surprise for me. Even before the operation, we knew that a break of many months would be necessary afterwards”. 

Federer also mentioned his training schedule during the same interview.

The doctors say that I will be able to jog lightly in January and gradually return to the court. Gently. They don’t know, but I’ve already been playing a bit of tennis with the kids. Then in March or April, I can start training again in a tennis-like way”.

Also, Federer won the ATP Fans’ Favorite Award for the 19th time in his career. Even though he played a mere 13 matches this year, Federer’s popularity among tennis fans proved vital once again.

If the training goes well, the 20-time major champion will grace the tennis courts by opting to play for a grass-court practice event in either Halle or Stuttgart ahead of Wimbledon Championships next year.
