‘Hurts me a lot’: Roger Federer’s sad admission amid injury battle



Roger Federer has provided fans with a telling update on his latest injury struggles after admitting the “worst” is behind him but a return date to tennis is still not clear.



Federer said a likely comeback date is still some ways off but insists his recovery from three knee surgeries is on track and going well.



The 20-time grand slam winner had been out for more than a year with two surgeries on his right knee before getting back onto the tour this year.



But he played only 13 matches, and underwent a third operation following his quarter-final defeat at Wimbledon in July.

“I’m doing very well; the rehab is progressing step by step,” the Swiss star said at an event in Zurich with sponsors Mercedes-Benz.




“The worst is behind me. I’m looking forward to everything that happens to me to come.

“When you come back from an injury, every day is a better day. So it’s an exciting time.”

He said that given everything he had been through with his troublesome knee, dealing with the situation was “not a mental problem at all”.
