Tennis Roger Federer posts positive fitness update but warns fans his return ‘will take a very long time’ Published 4 weeks ago on July 15, 2020 By Caroline Crosby Roger Federer says he is on target to be ‘100% for next season’ but has warned his path to fitness is not going to be easy. Federer has only played one tournament this season – the Australian Open – before knee surgery ended his campaign.
