Before joining Doha, where he will play his first tournament in more than a year, Roger Federer posted a photo of his last training in Dubai, then a video where he does not hide his impatience to find the competition.
Roger Federer’s return is coming very soon. After 13 months of absence and two operations on the right knee, the Swiss will play the ATP 250 tournament in Doha, scheduled for March 8 to 13. This Friday, he first posted a tweet with a photo of himself all smiles, along with the following message: “Last training before the start. I feel strong and ready to go! ”
Then, he said in a short video posted later at the airport: “We’re going to take off for Doha soon. It’s been a year since my last trip to a tournament and I can tell you I’m very excited. It has been a long and difficult road. There is still work to be done but I feel that I am doing well, I am training very well, and I feel pumped up. “
Descended to fifth place in the world, the 39-year-old Swiss will then continue with the Dubai tournament, from March 14 to 20, but will not take part in the Masters 1000 in Miami (March 24-April 4),
