Moving On To The New Year
During 2019, Roger Federer won four titles. In addition to this, the Swiss was close to winning his twenty-first Grand Slam tournament. In the Wimbledon final, he had two championship points but managed to lose to Novak Djokovic. Unfortunately, Federer also failed to capture his record-setting seventh Nitto ATP Finals.
2020 will be Roger Federer’s 22nd season on the ATP Tour. Even so, he shows no signs of slowing down. Although he will turn thirty-nine next summer, he is in great shape and is ready to compete in big tournaments.
Roger Federer 2020 Announcement
During 2019, Roger Federer made it clear that he will only play at the Australian Open and Wimbledon in 2020, skipping the French and US Open. But, while talking to CNN Sports, Federer confessed that he will play at both the Tokyo Olympics and all four Grand Slam tournaments in 2020. This announcement was not only a great win for Fed-Heads but also tennis as a whole.
The announcement that Federer will compete at his fifth Olympic Games was not surprising, because he is still chasing his first gold medal. Also, because he is sponsored by the Japanese sports equipment company Uniqlo. Still, his decision to keep competing in tournaments on clay was truly surprising.
Roger Federer 2020 Schedule
The Swiss maestro has already composed most of his schedule for the 2020 season saying, “I will play at Roland Garros. Probably I will not play so much before this, especially since I will participate in the Olympic Games. I will play at Roland Garros, Halle, Wimbledon, the Olympics, and then the Cincinnati and US Open, “ said Federer.
Roger’s schedule for the start of the 2020 season includes the Australian Open in January, the Dubai Open (an ATP 500 tournament) in February, and the Masters tournaments of Indian Wells and Miami in March. During these tournaments, he is tasked with defending 2,080 points.
Federer did not play at Roland Garros from 2016 to 2018 to give him time for rest and recovery. In 2019, the Swiss returned to the Parisian clay but was stopped in the semi-finals by the “King of Clay,” Rafael Nadal. Roger’s confirmation of his participation in Roland Garros means he will have a very busy spring and summer. After finishing his performance at the French Open, Roger will start his grass-court season at the Halle Open. Then, the third Grand Slam tournament of the year, Wimbledon, will take place from June 29 to July 12. Thirteen days after the men’s final at Wimbledon, the competition will start at the Olympic Games, which will take place between July 25 and August 2. After the Olympics, Federer will travel to the United States for the hard-court season, at the Cincinnati and US Open.
