Am ready to Switch to Clay – Federer.
In a recent interview, Roger Federer reflected on what led him to decide to play on clay again this year. The Swiss plans to compete in Madrid, and at the French Open.
“I feel I can make it physically this year,” said the Basel native.
“This was different in 2017 and 2018, because I was not ready for it, the switch from hard to clay and grass. I spoke about it with the team, everyone was okay with it.
I wanted to be back on the court in the spring.” Does it mean he will have a farewell tour this year? “Nope, that was not the plan.
The question was: will I play on clay this year or not? The answer was yes. Playing in Paris in 2019 does not mean it has to be my last run there.”
