Roger Federer has been experiencing a major drop in his tennis career after dropping more than 4 places in the ATP rankings.

He is currently on the World Number 15 spot, and for the longest time, he had exited the Top 10.

The 40-year-old Swiss had suffered a right knee injury, which prevents him from playing tennis. His last match was on July 7 at the Wimbledon Open, as he experienced a humiliating defeat against Poland’s Hubert Hurkacz.

On the other hand, Novak Djokovic is still in the World Number 1 spot, with 1800 points away from Daniil Medvedev.

Stefanos Tsitsipas is running on the third spot, while Alexander Zverev and Rafael Nadal hold the 4th and 5th place, respectively. Indian Wells Champion Cameron Norrie reached his career-best ranking at World Number 14, while Italian Jannik Sinner moved up to World Number 11.

The Tennis superstar Federer will be out for many months after undergoing knee surgery, and he hopes that he will be able to return to the competition. While he understands how difficult it is to play at his age, still he wanted to see a glimmer of hope to return.

To keep himself healthy, he will also undergo a series of rehab procedures for a long time. It is remembered that he also withdrew from the Australian Open when he decided to undergo knee surgery.

For the record, Federer is tied with Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic for most Grand Slam single titles. Since the 2018 Australian Open, Federer has failed to bring home the championship.
