Roger Federer is set to make his comeback at the 250 series in Doha since his absence for over 13 months. He was out of the sport because of a knee injury, also underwent two surgeries.
The Swiss last played in the semi-finals of the 2020 Australian Open, where he faced the current World No.2, Novak Djokovic. However, he lost that match to the Serb for 6 (1)-7 (7), 4-6, and 3-6. Federer was expected to make his return at the Australian Grand Slam in 2021, but changed his mind to give his body more time to recover.
The 39-year-old made it official that he will make his comeback in the ATP 250 Qatar Open. The whole world’s eyes would be set at the King to see how he will perform. Because it is never easy to show an outstanding performance after coming back from a year back, as we have already witnessed Andy Murray. The 33-year-old British knocked out of the top 100 in 2019 because of a hip injury and only aced a single match since his return from injury.
Andy Murray believes Roger Federer will return stronger than before
However, Murray claims that the Swiss star’s skills are unparalleled to any other tennis player. He already showed a miraculous performance in the past, when he got injured in 2016 and aced four titles in the following season. Since he might be able to pull another miracle in the 2021 season.
“I am sure he has been training hard and is excited to get back out there and compete. I am sure in time, providing that his body is good, that he will play top-level tennis again because he is that good. Even if there is a slight drop-off physically for him, I would back his skill against most players. I am sure he will be fine.” said Murray.
But the 39-year-old himself doubts he might not ace in the first week of the Qatar Open, but soon will get into the form. He is aiming for the prestigious Grand Slam at Wimbledon, which will begin in just three-and-a-half months.
Roger is set to face Dan Evans at the ATP Qatar Open on Wednesday, 10 March 2021. Everyone is thrilled to see the King back on the courts and we might expect to see a fairytale on the courts in Doha.
