Roger Federer played 17 tournaments in 2019, including a much-awaited return to the clay where he made the semi-finals at the French Open.
However, sadly in 2020, after undergoing an arthroscopic knee injury on February 19th, he announced that he will miss Dubai, Indian Wells, Miami and the French Open.
The Swiss hopes to be back in time for the grass-court swing which starts for him in Halle.
The other big news is that providing there are no more injury setbacks, Federer will be taking part in the Olympic Games in Tokyo which take place after Wimbledon. The 20 time Grand Slam champion will be bidding to win an elusive singles gold medal to compliment the doubles gold he won back in 2008 with Stan Wawrinka.
