Federer will make his return in an ATP 250 event in Doha, Qatar. Federer’s last tournament was the 2020 Australian Open. Since then, the pandemic and his two knee surgeries have pushed him out of the tennis court. Many wanted the Swiss master to return at Australian Open 2021, but a delayed recovery phase prompted Federer to delay his return.

Roger Federer and his priorities in 2021

Despite nearing his 40s, Federer is still passionate about a strong return to the tour. His main priorities are Wimbledon and the Olympic Games.

“I wanted to make my comeback at a smaller tournament, so as not to be fully in the spotlight.” Federer had said in an earlier interview.

“My biggest wish is to finish my career on my terms. As I’ve said before, it doesn’t have to be a fairy-tale ending, it doesn’t have to be a Wimbledon victory, and then I’ll walk away.”
