Federer returns to clay in Madrid after two years
Tennis player Roger Federer returns to the clay court after just under two years. The 39-year-old Swiss has pledged to participate in the Madrid tournament, scheduled to start at the beginning of May. Serbian Novak Djokovic and Spaniard Rafael Nadal also participate.
Federer recently made his comeback in Doha after more than a year of absence due to two knee operations. He lost there in his second match.
Federer’s last tournament victory on clay dates back to 2015 in Istanbul. In 2009 he won Roland Garros.
