World number 3 Roger Federer has revealed that he wants to spend time with his family before returning to competition at the end of the month in Dubai. Federer, who holds a record for 20 Grand Slam titles, has only played one tournament in 2020 so far because he has decided not to participate in events leading up to the Australian Open.
After a semi-final in Melbourne Park, the 38-year-old went to Cape Town last week, where he won against former rival Rafael Nadal in a charity match.
After Dubai, the former world No. 1 should travel to the United States and play in the first two Masters 1000 of the season in Indian Wells and Miami. “Soon we will have a longer phase without a new trip,” said Federer, from Tennis Shot.
“I am constantly talking to Mirka about how we can find the simplest solution for the kids, and above all the best decision for my tennis.” For the past few years, we have been able to bring a little more stability. “
We try to stay in the same place with the family for as long as possible. “That’s why I skipped the ATP Cup [en Australie] – so that we can stay in Dubai longer. ”
