Roger Federer says he will be sidelined for many months as he prepares to have further knee surgery.
The 40-year-old Swiss and 20-time Grand Slam champion had two knee operations last year.
In a video post on Instagram, Federer said he hoped the surgery would give him a glimmer of hope to return to action.
He was knocked out in the quarter-finals at Wimbledon in July and then missed the Tokyo Olympics.
In the past two years, he has seen his Grand Slam titles tally equalled twice, first by Spain’s Rafael Nadal at the 2020 French Open and then by Serbia’s Novak Djokovic, who won a 20th major at Wimbledon 2021.
