Roger Federer returns to action on clay in Geneva

Roger Federer


Roger Federer makes his latest return to the tour on clay in Geneva this week but his thoughts are very much on the grass-court season and Wimbledon.

The 20-time grand-slam champion underwent two knee operations last year and spent more than 12 months on the sidelines.

He played two matches at the ATP tournament in Doha in March before returning to the practice court for another two months of training.

Federer, who turns 40 in August, will play the Geneva Open in his home country and the French Open later this month as he attempts to get fully back in the swing of things in time for a tilt at a ninth Wimbledon title in July.

“When you come back from an injury you are anyway in a different place from everybody else. I’m excited about the comeback, that’s what my focus needs to be on and not about trying to be at the same level as Rafa (Nadal) and Novak (Djokovic) right now.

Federer will play either Jordan Thompson or Pablo Andujar in his first match on Tuesday.
