Earlier this year, Federer had undergone arthroscopic surgery on his right knee.
He had to make a public statement on Twitter and revealed that he will be missing the Dubai Open, Indian Wells tournament and the French Open. “My right knee has been bothering me for a little while, I hoped it would go away, but after an examination and discussion with my team, I decided to have arthroscopic surgery in Switzerland yesterday,” Federer wrote on Twitter.”
However, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, French Open has been postponed to September now, and this may see, Federer, playing the tournament.
To help out those families affected by the coronavirus, last week, Federer announced that he along with his Mirka will be donating one million Swiss Francs.
