Roger Federer will not play at the Australian Open as he keeps coming back from two surgeries on his right knee, his agent told the Associated Press.

Federer last played at the 2020 Australian Open in January. He skipped the rest of the pandemic-altered 2020 tennis calendar in rehab and saw Rafael Nadal capture his record of 20 Grand Slam titles in October.

Roger has decided not to play at the 2021 Australian Open. He has made strong progress with his knee and his fitness in recent months. However, after consulting with his team, he decided that the best long-term decision for him is to return to competitive tennis after the Australian Open, Godsick said in a statement released to the AP.

I will start discussions over the next week for tournaments starting in late February and then start creating a schedule for the rest of the year, Godsick said.

The 2021 Australian Open was postponed for three weeks due to the pandemic and is now starting February 8 in Melbourne.

Federer is returning from knee surgery

Federer, 39, trains in Dubai, UAE as usual. He last played competitively at the Australian Open, where he lost in straight sets to Novak Djokovic in the semifinals. Djokovic went on to win while Federer didn’t look completely healthy in the match.

Federer starred in one doubles exhibition charity event the first week of February in Cape Town, South Africa. Weeks later, he announced that he had had arthroscopic surgery on his right knee and that he would be out for at least four months. He later had a second operation.

He has six Australian Open titles, eight Wimbledon titles, five at the US Open and one at the French Open. Nadal tied his record of 20 Grand Slam trophies at the rescheduled French Open in October. He beat Djokovic, who has 17 titles, in straight sets.

The ATP announced the schedule change earlier this month and confirmed dates for the first seven weeks of the calendar. It said it will confirm the rest of the schedule, especially weeks 8-13, at a later date.
