3 mins read


Roger Federer is unlikely to play at the Laver Cup this year after suffering a setback in his return from injury, according to reports. The tennis icon has apparently suffered a recurrence to the knee injury that has largely kept him out of action since Wimbledon 2021. 

Federer has not played competitively since his heavy defeat by Hubert Hurkacz on centre court last year. He is due to return when tennis stars play at the Laver Cup in October. 

The 41-year-old released footage of a training session in mid-August in a major hint that he will make his long-awaited comeback. It came more than a year after the 20-times Grand Slam champion revealed he would be undergoing a third surgery on his right knee. 

However, that return to fitness at the Laver Cup now seems unlikely as the 41-year-old’s recovery. Reports from people close to Federer suggest that he has suffered a devastating setback in his quest to play again.
