Roger Federer gives new injury update with tennis icon 'feeling like a racehorse in a box'


Roger Federer has given a fresh injury update as he eyes a comeback at September’s Laver Cup. The 20-time Grand Slam champion has been out of action since Wimbledon last year after having his third knee surgery in 18 months, and admitted he felt like “a racehorse in a box” while waiting to get his doctor’s approval to step up his training even more.

Federer has been sidelined since July, having suffered a “setback” with the knee injury that also kept him out of the 2020 season after the Australian Open. The former world No 1 has since returned to the gym in preparation for his comeback in September, and gave a fresh injury update as he admitting he was raring to go and give a comeback “his all”.

Asked about his impending return to tennis, the 20-time Major champion told Caminada: “I can’t even think that far. I’m waiting for the doctors’ okay. I’m ready to give it my all again. I feel like a racehorse scratching its stall and wanting to race.

“In the summer I hope to be able to hit the ground running. I’m looking forward to coming home in the evening after the tough day of training and being completely exhausted.” Federer first returned to a proper training schedule last month, and also shared his daily schedule as he continues to build back up to his best level.
