Roger Federer reveals season was blighted by injury after ATP Finals exit

Roger Federer stunned

Roger Federer has admitted he has been playing with a hand injury “for a long time”.

The 37-year-old ended the season with defeat to Alexander Zverev in the last four of the ATP Finals.

However, he has since revealed details of an injury that has plagued him for the second half of the year.

“I do not always want to speak on the hand,” he said.

“That should not be an excuse. But I had these problems with my hand, and that sure broke my rhythm sometimes.

“I felt the hand for a long time, even here in London still a bit.

“Even though it has been getting better and better, I could quickly count on my forehand again.

“I hope that the complaints are finally gone after the holidays.”
