Roger Federer is working towards a January return to tennis in Australia after two knee procedures which wiped out the majority of his 2020 season.
But progress is taking time, with Team Federer in no rush to push their man beyond his limit.
Head coach Severin Luthi gave an update on progress, with an honest analysis:
““There are good days and bad days”: he told Swiss media ““Rehabilitation is normal.
“As with everyone, there are good days and bad days after a procedure.
“Roger started physiotherapy the day after the operation. And for some time now he has been working again with his fitness trainer Pierre Paganini.
“At the moment the focus is on achieving full physical fitness again.”
Luthi said that the comeback effort is as relaxed as it is intensive: “I myself have only had sporadic contact with Roger in the past few weeks.
“Our plan is to be back on the court regularly from the beginning of October,
“It’s clear that Roger needs training hours on the court before his comeback. The important phase follows in October, November and December. We still have enough time.”
