Swiss tennis star Roger Federer, who spent most of the season off the court due to knee arbiters, indicated On Monday that he could return to the courts at the Australian Open, one of the Grand Slam tournaments, which will be held from 8 to 21 February 2021.

In an interview with the Swiss weekly Schweizer Illustrierte, Federer reviewed his difficult season, while stressing that he would only return to the field when he was fully physically ready.

The 39-year-old said in his remarks: "I first have to test the extent of my knee on the pitch, but I hope to participate in the Australian Championship."

The tournament's director, Craig Tilley, announced that Federer had promised to be "in the best possible shape" in the tournament, which was delayed by a month due to the Corona pandemic.

The Australian championship was Federer's last appearance on the court this season, in which he was farewelled from the semi-finals by serbian traditional rival Novak Djokovic, before undergoing two argoscopy surgeries on his right knee that kept him out for the rest of the season.
