Tennis: Roger Federer to skip 2020 season after ‘setback’ in rehab

Tennis icon Roger Federer will not be playing for the rest of the 2020 season due to an untimely setback in his rehabilitation.

The 38-year-old Federer announced the development on his Twitter account, saying he will need to add a “quick arthroscopic procedure on (his) right knee.”

That will force the Swiss tennis legend out of the 2020 season.

Federer has won a record 20 Grand Slam singles titles, the last being the 2018 Australian Open championship.

Federer is currently no. 4 in the ATP world rankings.
