Federer withdraws from Australian Open
Federer, who had knee surgery after the semi-finals of the Australian Open last year and was not involved for the remainder of the season, was delayed once again. The Swiss tennis player, who previously said that his goal is to return to the courts with the 2021 Australian Open, stated that he will return to tennis after Australia because he is not fully ready. This is the first time it has been in Australia since 2000. The Swiss tennis player, who was the only tennis player to win more than a hundred games at the Australian Open, where he was eliminated only twice before the semi-finals since 2004, has not had the chance to improve this record a little more this year.
