Roger Federer is the man of the week. After 13 months without competing, the 39-year-old Swiss returns to the circuit at the ATP 250 in Doha. Toni Nadal, Rafa’s uncle and always complimentary to Your Majesty, gave his look.
“If Federer comes back it is because he thinks he can win a Grand Slam again. He surprises everyone every year. He came very close to doing so at Wimbledon 2019 (N. de R .: had two match points against Djokovic in the final). It will not be easy but if there is someone who can do it, it is him, “Rafa’s former coach told journalist Luigi Gatto.
Federer has not played since January 2020, in the semifinals of the Australian Open. He is the second seeded of the ATP of Doha and his presentation will be in the second round against the winner of Jeremy Chardy and Daniel Evans.
