Roger had arthroscopic surgery on his knee in February, and revealed he had a second procedure that will put off his return until 2021.

“A few weeks ago, having experienced a setback during my initial rehabilitation, I had to have an additional quick arthroscopic procedure on my right knee. Now, much like I did leading up to the 2017 season, I plan to take the necessary time to be 100% ready to play at my highest level,” he said.

“I will look forward to seeing everyone back on tour at the start of the 2021 season.”
