Roger, has no idea whether he can play in the US Open that is going to take place on August 30. He will come to a decision after a doctor check-up.

“I’m fine. I was on holiday. I haven’t done anything for a while because of my knee. I had to stop everything after Wimbledon. This week, I have to meet my doctors and my team, and then we will see what happens next. For now, everything is still a bit uncertain.”

When asked about whether this uncertainty makes him feel any different, he answered, “It was different before. The questions were simple: what is my place in the ranking? What will my next tournament be? “Today, it’s more difficult how do I feel when I start training again? What are my goals? How to reconcile all this with the family? What does the rest of the team say?”

But despite the troubles that he is facing, he remains optimistic. To him, the feelings are entirely different to how he felt a decade back.
