Roger Federer’s fans have been delighted with his clay-court comeback following a couple of year hiatus. In addition to this, they were excited after seeing Swiss Maestro gearing up for Geneva Open 2021.
A fortnight ago, the 39-year-old from Basel announced that he would compete in the Geneva Open and French Open this year’s European clay-court swing.
“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,” Federer tweeted.
In the ATP Tour calendar, the Geneva Open will occur from 16th to 22nd May in Switzerland. On the flip side, French Open runs from 30th May to 13th June in Paris.
According to Federer’s tweet, he has begun training on a clay court and has posted a video on his Instagram page. It seems that the 20-time Grand Slam has vigorously practised one-handed backhand from behind the baseline.

Within three hours after posting, twenty-seven minutes video has received 192,856 likes and 2715 comments. Fans have expressed their emotions over Roger Federer’s return.
