Roger Federer’s Return Scheduled in March at Doha
Tournament director of Rotterdam and former Wimbledon champion Krajicek is confident that Federer will comeback to professional tennis in March at the tournament that takes place in Doha.
Krajicek had hoped his Rotterdam tournament would be the one that welcomed Roger Federer back to competitive tennis after over a year out with a knee injury, but he now seems to think he has missed out as Doha in March looks like a greater possibility.
“I think I know he will play in Doha (March 8), the week after Rotterdam,” Krajicek said of Federer. “But if he’s fit and ready to play, we’ll hear from him,” said Richard Krajicek.
Krajicek had earlier seemed confident of Federer agreeing to play Rotterdam, and cited his special connection with the event after becoming the oldest ever world number one there in 2018.
“Roger Federer knows that he is well received in Rotterdam,” Kraijcek said earlier this month. “With the Big Three, you hope that the manager will contact you to tell you that they want to play here, but I can drop an email just in case. “I cannot consider Federer’s appearance a guarantee. I am aware that it may be too early for Federer to make a commitment just yet.”
