(CNN)Roger Federer has removed from the 2021 Australian Open, the competition reported on Monday.
The 20-time significant boss has not played in a competition since arriving at the elimination rounds at the 2020 Australian Open in the wake of getting arthroscopic medical procedure in his correct knee.
“In the end Roger used up all available time to prepare himself for the afflictions of a Grand Slam and he’s extremely frustrated he won’t be coming to Melbourne in 2021,” said Australian Open competition chief Craig Tiley in an assertion.
Federer plays a strike in his elimination round match against Novak Djokovic on day 11 of the 2020 Australian Open at Melbourne Park on January 30, 2020 in Melbourne, Australia.
Prior in December, Federer said at the Switzerland Sport Awards that his recuperation from knee medical procedure had taken longer than anticipated and was uncertain he would be prepared for the primary tennis thousand pummel of the 2021 season.
“I would have trusted that I would be 100% in October. Be that as it may, I am as yet not today. It will be tight for the Australian Open,” nearby media cited Federer as saying after he was named Switzerland’s best competitor of the most recent 70 years at the honors function.
“I trust that there will be something to see with me one year from now. In the event that not, at that point that is an amazing end point.”
