NEW YORK---Maybe Roger Federer
could play the Olympics and skip the
US Open. Or sit out the Rio Games
and make it to New York.
The 17-time major champion con-
templated both scenarios, holding out
hope as long as he could that he d find
a way to enter at least one of the big
events in August.
In the end, his balky left knee would-
n t allow him to do either.
At a meeting with doctors and train-
ers, Federer recalled, "Everybody said,
You need a break---right now. "
So the Swiss great announced in late
July that he d miss the rest of the sea-
son, by far the longest layoff of a
remarkably healthy career.
Federer, who turned 35 this month,
was in Manhattan yesterday to talk
about playing tennis next year at the
new Laver Cup team event. But for the
first time since 1999, he s not preparing
for the US Open.
He underwent an arthroscopic pro-
cedure in February to repair torn car-
tilage---the first surgery of his career.
Federer hasn t played since his Wim-
bledon loss to Milos Raonic, in which
he fell awkwardly and called the trainer
to check on what had become a nagging
"I never really had pain, funny
enough," Federer said. "It just felt unsta-
Then there was the swelling.
"When it s swollen, you can t com-
pete at the best level," he added.
An MRI didn t show anything dis-
tinctly different from before. For all his
upbeat talk Wednesday about his future,
Federer let some doubts seep in when
he discussed the mystery of what s
going on in the knee.
"That s why, I think, it s been to some
extent frustrating," he said. "At least if
I had a lot of pain, or if the scan shows
you thoroughly what exactly the prob-
lem is, then I think it s easier to take
"I really hope I m not being misled
by the knee that it doesn t feel painful.
But it s just not 100 per cent. That s
why I just think the beating that I got
in Wimbledon and the clay court season
was just so complicated."
Federer, who also skipped the French
Open because of a bad back, didn t
play tennis for five or six weeks and
just now is starting to do a few things
on the court. He s focused on exercises
to strengthen his left quadriceps, such
as squats, so he ll be physically ready
once he ramps back up to his full work-
outs to prepare for January s Australian
It might have been possible to return
for a couple of tournaments late in
2016, Federer said, but there was no
point once he knew he would miss the
bulk of the fall schedule.
He reflected back to this past January,
when the Laver Cup concept was
unveiled at the Australian Open, and
marveled: "My God, I never thought I
was going to have a year the way I had
it."He hurt his knee while preparing a
bath for his twin daughters, then later
saw his record 65-appearance streak
at major tournaments end. Federer
won t win a title in a season for the
first time since 2000. And now that
he missed the Rio Games, his career
could end without an Olympic singles
knee has final
say in August

scenarios in which he would play in the Olympics and skip the US Open, and vice
versa. In the end, his balky left knee wouldn't allow him to do either. AP PHOTO
