Roger Federer has been out of the tennis court for more than nine months. The Swiss maestro played his last tournament at Wimbledon in July 2021, where he had to face a defeat against Hubert Hurkacz in the quarterfinals. The 20-time Grand Slam champ was ruled out due to a knee injury and has been out ever since. The tennis world has been missing the Big Three’s dominance on the court this season. The dynamic trio of Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, and Novak Djokovic have clearly dominated the modern era with the most number of titles shared among them. Federer has certainly been the initiator, and his attacking game always makes it worth watching him play.
Fans have been eagerly waiting for the 40-year-old to come back and resume his tennis journey during the final few years of his career. Roger has had a long history of knee troubles throughout his career. The right knee injury that he suffered last year has kept him out for a long while now. Moreover, Federer had to undergo three surgeries to fix the damage to his right knee.
Roger is hopeful about his comeback and is in the rehabilitation stage of his injury. He plans to return to the tennis world soon and hopes to participate in the Laver Cup in September. Hopefully, Federer will be able to make a dream come back and win his 21st Grand Slam title. Recently, the Swiss giant was spotted spending some time in Venice while tennis enthusiasts prayed for his timely return.

On Monday, Federer was seen spending some quality time in Venice, Italy. Fans spotted the tennis giant and shared some pictures of him on his social media account. Roger wore a black jacket with a white t-shirt underneath. The 40-years old wore sunglasses with white shoes to compliment his crisp look. Federer seemed to be having some fun while enjoying the company of his friends. Photos of Roger enjoying a boat ride also surfaced on Twitter. The Swiss maestro is having some calming times before he returns to the tennis world for the final stint of his career.
Tennis enthusiasts have missed Roger’s presence, and it will be thrilling to see the Big Three competing against each other in major tournaments again. Moreover, Nadal got the edge on Federer and Djokovic after winning his 21st Grand Slam title in Australia earlier in the year. Hence, Federer would be focused on coming back and equalizing Nadal’s record to prove his eliteness once again.
