Roger Federer Set For March 8 Doha Return

Roger Federer is ready for his return on March 8 in Doha.

Follow two surgeries on his right knee, the former No. 1 hasn’t been on tour since his Australian Open semifinal loss last year to Novak Djokovic.

Federer was hopeful to return in Australia but even the late start wasn’t enough to sway the Swiss.

Federer announced the “countdown” on social media. He’s won Doha three times, though most recently in 2011.

He’ll be joined in that field by Dominic Thiem, Stan Wawrinka, Andrey Rublev, Milos Raonic and others.

He’s then scheduled to play in Dubai, where he trains, and then travel to Miami for the Masters event in Florida.

The 39-year-old Federer is currently ranked however he is slated to take a massive hit in points losing his 2019 Miami title and his 2019 Indian Wells final in the next 40 days or so. That would drop him down to around No. 8.
