“I just have to stay patient, I’m making constant progress.” – Roger Federer

The 20-time Grand Slam winner and former world number shared that he is making constant progress from time to time. He said: “I had surgery at the end of August and people ask me ‘So, how does it look?’. And each time I have to answer that it will take a little more time.” I just have to stay patient, I’m making constant progress”

His agent, Tony Godsick, also said that Federer will not rush and will wait for the betterment of his body towards the game shape. “He (Roger Federer) won’t rush back this time. He will have to be 100% and know he’s 100% and that’s why he’s taking his time doing heavy rehab and training. It’s not just when the knee feels good but building up the muscles and getting lungs back. I know he’s encouraged where he is,” he added.

On his chances to play in the Laver Cup, Godsick added that he can get back if all rehab events go well for him. “I don’t want to be the doctor but what I hope for him is to able to have a great rehab this summer, play some in the fall and give a nice shot at 2023, and then see what happens. I haven’t talked to him about that,” he concluded.
