The BIG NEWS on Thursday was 20-time Grand Slam winner Roger Federer announcing that he has undergone knee surgery and will miss five events.

In his latest comment piece, the excellent Kevin Palmer admits that the ‘FedDay’ clock just clicked forward a few notches following Federer’s announcement and “we are about to discover whether the ageing frame of the sporting icon can come through its biggest test year”.

Boris Becker has called out the next generation as he feels they are hiding behind Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic, saying “nobody is going to criticise you for losing to them”.

You have to feel for US Open champion Bianca Andreescu as her injury enforced layoff continues.

Daniil Medvedev was at it again in terms of his antics and it got so bad that his coach got up and left the players’ box with Gilles Cervara saying later that he “didn’t want to endorse that kind of behaviour”.
