The all-time leading grand Slam champion, Roger Federer, has announced through his social media accounts that he won't be playing anymore tournaments in 2020.
The Swiss underwent an arthroscopic procedure on his right knee but plans a comeback at the start of 2021.
Federer, who is currently the fourth best player in the world according to the ATP rankings, will return to the pro tour with 39 years of age, and there's no doubt his career is coming soon to an end.
This year, 'RF' only played one ATP tournament, where he reached the semifinals of the Australian Open, falling to Novak Djokovic in three sets. Federer also made a special trip around LatinAmerica alongside Alexander Zverev for 7 days at the end of 2019, playing exhibition matches at Chile, Argentina, Colombia, Mexico and Ecuador.
'The Swiss Maestro' was expected to miss the entire clay-swing after having a right knee surgery back in February, if the Coronavirus would have not happened. Now, a second procedure will keep him off the courts until 2021.
