Tennis maestro Roger Federer back to action after injury scare
Tennis legend Roger Federer the 18 time grand slam king is back to training after sustaining a serious knee injury earlier this month.
Unfortunately Federer's injury required a surgical procedure called arthroscopic surgery this week to fix the torn meniscus in his knee.
By all indications, the surgery must have been successful since he has returned to the training courts. Federer's knee injury marks one of the few injuries he has sustained in a mostly injury free career.
Unfortunately for the swiss maestro, he missed one of his favourite tournaments in Dubai, where he has a multitude of fans.
The Dubai tournament is one which he has won 7 times and is the current defending champion; He defeated hard fighting Serbian; world number 1 Novack Djokovic for the Dubai crown last year.
Roger Federer may be out of competitive action for over a month to ensure full recovery.
Doctors say a torn meniscus takes about 3 months to properly heal, although the swiss was assured that he could return to training in as little as two weeks after surgery.
The knee injury occurred while Federer was walking his twin daughters in the park. This was also on the day following his Australian open semi final loss to top seed Novak Djokovic. A match Federer lost in four sets of grinding tennis action.
Federer's fans are elated that he has returned to training as the tennis season rages on.
