Roger Federer Getting Ready For Geneva, French Open
Roger Federer is on track for a return later this month at his home Geneva event and then the French Open. Federer, who has played just one event this year — a loss in the second round of Doha to Nikolaz Basilashvili —
Last month, the Swiss announced that Geneva and the French Open would comprise his clay season.
“Hi everyone! Happy to let you know that I will play Geneva🇨🇭 and Paris 🇫🇷. Until then I will use the time to train. Can’t wait to play in Switzerland again. ❤️🚀”, he tweeted.
But coach Severin Luthi followed saying Federer’s fitness was not where it needed to be.
“In terms of fitness, Roger is still lagging behind, which is a priority,” Luthi told Swiss radio last month.
“Tennis practice sessions are very intense and good, but are not taking place that often yet like they would be in a tournament environment.”
Geneva begins on May 16.
