I am very disappointed as it has been an honor and the highlight of my career every time I have represented Switzerland. I’ve already started rehab in hopes of returning to tour this summer. I wish the entire Swiss national team the best of luck and I will cheer a lot from afar”, said the tennis icon, who won the gold medal in Beijing 2008 and silver medal in London 2012. On Rio Olympics, in 2016, he was out for a knee injury similar to the current one.
