Roger Federer does not expect to return from his latest knee surgery in time for next year’s tournament at Wimbledon.
“The truth is that I’d be incredibly surprised to play Wimbledon,” Federer told the Tribune de Genève daily. ”At 40 or 41 years old, it’s the same.”
Federer did say that he still wants to play in one more Grand Slam final.
