Due to some complications in his recovery, the Swiss Maestro had to undergo another knee surgery. This forced him to end his 2020 season completely, and no fan was happy about this. Now, after a long time, we finally have good news that Roger’s recovery is going very well.

A recent report revealed that Federer has resumed his training after a long time. From next week, he will have 2 sessions of 45 minutes each. Right now, his goal is to return for the 2021 Australian Open, which will begin in January.

Roger Federer 2021

After hearing about his two surgeries, many might have expected Roger Federer to retire. However, to the delight of every tennis fan, he is not going anywhere and will continue to play his beloved sport. At the age of 39, it is amazing to see that he still wants to play professional tennis and the reason for this is probably his all-time Grand Slam record.

The Swiss Maestro has held this record ever since he won the 2009 Wimbledon. At the time, it looked like no one would ever come close to it. But that is no longer the case. His biggest rivals, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic, are now within striking distance of the record and that is not good for Roger.

He needs to extend his lead in this race as it will determine who goes down as the GOAT of tennis. And hopefully, he will do that by winning his 7th Australian Open title when he returns in 2021.
