Faced with the premature defeat in Geneva, doubts arose:Will Roger Federer play at Roland Garros? For now, in a post-match press conference, he confirmed that it was.
The truth is that he will arrive in Paris with only one match played on clay in the season, the defeat against Pablo Andújar, so the final decision of the Swiss will be seen to be in France in matches to five sets or to aim for the grass, with an epilogue on Wimbledon.
In the previous one, unlike the other players that make up the Top 10, the Swiss decided not to play in the three Masters 1000 on brick dust.
Earlier, in Dubai, the Swiss had returned to the circuit after an extensive inactivity of almost a year and a half without playing. The current world No. 8 in the ranking achieved a victory against Daniel Evans and was defeated in the next round by Nikoloz Basilashvili. After the crash, he decided not to be in Doha.
His tour on grass will start from June 14 at the Halle ATP 500, a tournament that also confirmed it for its 2022 edition. Another alternative would be to play the ATP 250 from Stuttgart, field on grass that will start on Tuesday, June 8, leaving room for those eliminated in the round of 16 of the French Open to play.
For now, the only tournaments confirmed by the Swiss are Roland Garros, Halle, Wimbledon and the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 + 1.
