The Swiss icon, the twenty Grand Slam winner, “plays from time to time” with his four children, but “things are going slow” after surgery on his third right knee in a year and a half.

I had surgery at the end of August, and by that time we already knew it. People always ask me: “So, what does it look like?”. And each time I have to answer that it will take a little longer,” he told SRF.

L’ancien no 1 mondial pourrait « déjà en faire beaucoup plus », mais met « actuellement l’accent sur (sa) condition physique, afin qu’il n’y ait pas de surcharge », en allant au gymnase « cinq à six once a week “.

“I just have to stay patient, I’m making constant progress,” Basel continued, hoping to get “a lot of information in the coming months” about his physical development.

However, Federer is still seeking to return to the stadiums during the Laver Cup in London (September 23-25) and then in his hometown from October 24-30, as announced by the organizers of the Basel tournament at the end of April.
