The 8-time Wimbledon Champion stated, “For now I am a happy father and I appreciate the fact that I can go back to driving a car. I hope to continue playing, perhaps in the future also as a television commentator. Why not, also on Sky Italia, like Ljubicic who I see now live.”

Roger Federer is slowly but steadily returning to normalcy

The Swiss maestro is glad that after his third knee surgery, he can finally get back to driving, which is something he has not done in a while. He also wouldn’t mind becoming a pundit and providing his inputs. 

Coming to tennis, Federer did not feature in the Australian Open and was seen at the French Open. He won his first three-round matches but pulled out before the fourth round as he was still lacking match fitness.

After that, he set his focus on the beloved, the Wimbledon Championships, but he lost in the quarterfinal which was a huge disappointment for the Federer camp. 

He then released a statement that he would be requiring another knee surgery. Due to that, he had to end his season prematurely and he would be missing from action for many months.
