Swiss Tennis maestro Roger Federer withdraws from Tokyo Olympics due to knee injury

Swiss Tennis maestro Roger Federer has withdrawn from the Tokyo Olympics because of knee injury during the grass-court season. The eight-time Wimbledon champion had missed the 2016 Rio Olympics also due to knee injury. The 20-time Grand Slam champion was knocked out of Wimbledon in the quarter-finals by Hubert Hurkacz last week.

After losing to Hubert Hurkacz in the quarterfinals of Wimbledon 2021, the Swiss tennis maestro had said that he really do not know if that was the last time he will play Wimbledon. Hurkacz defeated Federer 6-3, 7-6, 6-0 in straight sets in the quarterfinals of the Grand Slam at the Centre Court. On Sunday, Novak Djokovic tied Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal’s record of 20 Grand Slam titles after the Serbian won his sixth Wimbledon title.
