Tennis legend Roger Federer has sent his fans into meltdown on social media, after providing an update on his injury rehabilitation. Federer hasn’t featured on the ATP Tour since last summer’s Wimbledon due to a catalogue of injury problems.
The 20-time Grand Slam champion has been plagued with a knee issue which has left him sidelined since his quarter-final defeat at SW19 against Hubert Hurcakz. Back in November, Federer admitted that it could take him a year to recover, playing down his chances of even competing in the 2022 Wimbledon event.
These worrying updates sparked rumours that Federer could well be contemplating retirement due to his problems. However, fans will now no doubt be breathing a sigh of relief, with the Swiss star looking on the mend following a recent Instagram post.
In a post on Monday night, Federer shared photos of him putting in the work during a gym session as he continues his rehab and road to recovery. Along with the workout shots, the 20-time Grand Slam champion wrote: “Rehab is rockinggggggg.”
