Updated Roger Federer schedule for 2020: When can fans expect to see star again after Australian Open
Roger Federer never seems to tire, but much of that is down to his carefully managed schedule. So how is his schedule looking for 2020?
Federer picked up an injury at the Australian Open, hurting his groin during his quarter-final against Tennys Sandgren. He recovered sufficiently to face Novak Djokovic in the semi-final, but again left the court for a medical timeout, and his game promoted the Serb to describe Federer as “clearly injured” afterwards.
However, he was then able to play both a doubles and singles match in his stellar Cape Town exhibition against Rafael Nadal the following week, so the signs are good.
You’d expect him to look seriously at the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships on February 17th for a possible withdrawal. He won the competition last year, though, meaning he has a lot of points to defend there, and it will be a tough defence with Novak Djokovic also currently scheduled to play.
Federer revealed in South Africa that that he is scheduling in an ‘extended break’ at some point this season, so you’d likely expect that following the US Open.
Currently, the Roger Federer provisional 2020 schedule is as follows:
Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships (February 17 – 29)
MARCH & APRIL
BNP Paribas Open (March 9 – 22)
Miami Open (March 25 – April 5)
