#Forbes – #Tennis: #RogerFederer Eyes #Wimbledon After Knee Surgery


Roger Federer has set his sights on Wimbledon after the 20-time major winner had knee surgery that will see him miss the French Open. The third-ranked Swiss superstar, the world’s best-paid tennis player with $93.4 million in annual earnings according to FORBES, reached the semifinals at the French Open last year.

Federer: “My right knee has been bothering me for a little while. 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 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.”

Federer may return on the grass-courts of Halle, Germany in June, an event he has won a record ten times.

The Wimbledon Championships, where Federer is an eight-time champion, start June 29.
