Coach Severin Luthi: Roger Federer’s recovery didn’t go as quick as imagined

Roger-Federer-2012

Coach Severin Luthi has revealed that Roger Federer’s recovery hasn’t gone as quick as they hoped it would. Federer, ranked at No. 4 in the world, skipped the inaugural ATP Cup and didn’t play any events as a warm up for the Australian Open.

The 38-year-old wanted to arrive to Melbourne Park fresh and he made the semifinal, where he was handed a straight-set defeat by world No. 1 Novak Djokovic after being hampered by a groin issue. A week later, the Swiss clashed against his old rival Rafael Nadal in The Match for Africa.

Shortly clashing against Nadal in Cape Town, Federer announced that he had undergone an arthroscopic knee surgery to repair his damaged knee. The season has been suspended since mid-March due to the coronavirus outbreak and the suspension will last until at least early-August.

Coach Luthi thinks tennis could potentially return in September.

After undergoing an arthroscopic knee surgery, Federer was ruled out for the clay season but he was expected to be ready for the grass season.

“My right knee has been bothering me for a little while,” Federer announced on Twitter in February. “I hoped it would go away, but after an examination, and discussion with my team, I decided to have arthroscopic surgery in Switzerland yesterday.

After the procedure, the doctors confirmed that it was the right thing to have done and are very confident of a full recovery. “As a result, I will unfortunately have to miss Dubai, Indian Wells, Bogota, Miami and the French Open.

I am grateful for everyone’s support. I can’t wait to be back playing again soon, see you on the grass!” In 2016, Federer had his first big surgery as he underwent a season-ending knee surgery after Wimbledon.

There were doubts how would Federer play after the surgery but undergoing a knee surgery proved to be one of the best decision the Swiss had ever made. Roger Federer has since won two Grand Slam titles and prolonged his career and he certainly hopes the latest surgery will help him in his bid to achieve more success.
