We haven’t heard much from Roger Federer since bowing out of Indian Wells to rival Rafael Nadal almost a month ago. Federer, who was struggling with a back injury at the time, has resumed his training as he gets focused on the French Open. And that of course means practicing on the red clay.
Except Federer isn’t just any other tennis player. Take a look at this shot of the court Federer’s was playing on today:
“Enjoying my practice….” Federer wrote on Facebook.
Well, we are enjoying the scenery (Swiss alps?) and also the court which appears to be a red clay sandbox. Is that anything like court Philippe Chatrier at the French Open?
Federer is not expected to play in Monte Carlo next week but he will return in Madrid early next month. The 31-year-old ranks No. 3 this week. He’s 13-4 on the season but hasn’t reached a final in four events and hasn’t won a title since last summer.
