Roger Federer’s coach gives positive update about 20-time Grand Slam winner’s rehabilitation
Roger Federer’s long-time coach Severin Luthi has revealed that Roger Federer’s recovery from his second knee operation is going well and he will soon start doing fitness work again.
The Swiss great underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right knee in mid-February and was expected to return to action in June.
However, in June he called a premature end to his 2020 season after confirming he suffered a setback and was forced to undergo a second operation.
Luthi says Federer is on the mend and they are already focused on next season.
“Roger is doing well. Rehabilitation has gone according to plan after the second surgery. No big intensity until now, he will start a physical fitness block with Pierre Paganini shortly,” he told Swiss broadcaster SRF.
He added: “First priority is that Roger gets 100% healthy again. The nice thing is that with Roger you still get the feeling you‘re on court with a junior and not with a player who‘s rather at the end of his career, those are perfect conditions we’re focused on next season.”
