Roger Federer has not made any public comments on his tennis future since undergoing knee surgery and confirming his hiatus in 2021.

However, the Swiss tennis star appears to get back on the court really soon.

“I’m feeling actually really good, considering you know, that things are not as I hoped they would be, but I’m recovering well and the rehab is going really good I must say,” he told Eurosport.

 

“I’ve had no setbacks. You know, every day is a better day. I’m feeling strong and excited for what’s to come.

 

“Of course, I wish I could be back on a tennis court as quick as possible, but I have to be patient. And look, it’s a slow period right now. And I got to take it step by step. And so far so good. So I’m very happy.”

The 20-time Grand Slam champion has also talked about Novak Djokovic’s failed attempt to win a calendar Grand Slam.

“We saw it with Novak, myself and Rafa [Nadal] that we come extremely close,” he added. “But, you know, just doing it, I think you need a bit of luck.

 

“You need perseverance, strength. You need everything you know. And that’s why I think it’s going to be hard. But it’s possible.

 

“And I have to ask also what Rod Laver thought because he was sitting first row watching Novak play. But what Novak did this year was, of course, truly exceptional.”
