Roger Federer withdraws from the Australian Open
Roger Federer won’t be playing in the upcoming Australian Open.
He has played in the tournament every year since 1999.
The six-time Australian Open champ has failed to overcome a persistent knee injury that has seen him sidelined since last year’s tournament.
There is speculation as to whether Federer, a huge fan favourite in Australia, will ever play in the tournament again.
He turns 40 next year.
