Roger Federer will be missing multiple tournaments over the next few months including the French Open after undergoing a surgery in Switzerland on Wednesday. The world number three announced on Twitter that he had an arthroscopic surgery and will be spending the next few months recovering.
Federer announced that he will be missing the Dubai Open, Indian Wells, Bogota Open, Miami Open, and the French Open.
Federer will be looking to make a comeback in June, playing in Queens, Wimbledon and finally, the Tokyo Olympics. He has already confirmed that he will be participating in the Olympics.
The fans, however, expressed that they were sad that he would be missing out, but at the same time hoped for his speedy recovery.
Here’s some positivity Federer fans;— GameSetMatch 🎾 (@Tennis20MAD) February 20, 2020
Yes he’s missing a part of the season, but this surgery was done to PROLONG his career.
He could have carried on with it like he has done & got to the point where even surgery wouldn’t have sorted it.
We’ll miss him, but he’ll be back 👊🏻
Fact of the Day of February 20: Last time Roger Federer came back from an injury related break, he won a Grand Slam Title.— Brian (@camerlengo73_2) February 20, 2020
I became his fan in 2001. I was 9 then.— Anuradha (@ann_ac22) February 20, 2020
He played through my teenage, he played when I became an adult, he played during my graduation, my university years and he's still active when I'm now a working woman.
It is more than I could ever wish for 🙏
Get well soon @rogerfederer ❤️ pic.twitter.com/gYtnJY4350

Here’s hoping Federer begins his comeback from this knee surgery in the same way as before: with a high-tech live stream of his practice featuring warm up drills, lots of giggling, big kid energy, and this insight into what goes through his mind as he fluffs three break points... pic.twitter.com/Mn5G3XScGt— Matt Roberts (@Roberts96Matt) February 20, 2020
