Rogrer Federer has revealed the cause of the torn meniscus injury that made him lose against Novak Djokovic earlier this year. He hurt himself while bathing his tweens daughters.
The knee injury forced Roger Federer to face the first surgical intervention of his career. He decided to explain his bizzare accident before his return at the Miami Open.
He was preparing a bath for his daughters when he made a simple twist movement. This was when he heard a click in the knee. It did not take long until it got swollen.
The Swiss player declared that he hoped he could retire from the tennis career without having to face any surgical interventions. “It was a big shock and, yeah, disappointing,”, Federer said in a public interview.
His return is marked by the match against the Argentinian player Juan Martin del Porto in the Miami Open.
