"Everything seems still a little uncertain" says Roger Federer about US Open participation

Roger Federer pulled out of the National Bank Open in Toronto and the Western & Southern Open in Cincinnati due to knee issues and he still isn't recovered.

Roger Federer is still dealing with knee issues after a prolonged period of not playing tennis. The Swiss ace announced after his shocking Wimbledon exit that he suffered a setback with his knee. That prompted him to withdraw from the Olympics and two Masters 1000 events leading up to the US Open.

Many took it as a bad sign for Federer and his participation at the US Open which was one of the goals he highlighted at the start of the year before returning to competitive tennis. FOr the first time since all of this transpired Federer gave a short comment on the situation.

He spoke with the Swiss Bild and shortly said:

“This week I will meet my doctors and my team and then we'll see what happens next. At the moment, everything seems still a little uncertain.“

The quote lacks positivity in the tone of Federer who does not seem too optimistic that he will be cleared to compete at the US Open. All will depend on the meeting with his doctors which will provide everyone, including Federer, some clarity.

Hopefully, we will see the Swiss maestro in Queens, New York for the US Open where he last played two years ago.
