Roger Federer has confirmed he will finally make his Paris Masters comeback, ending his three-year hiatus.
The 20-time Grand Slam winner last played in Bercy in 2015 while his only tournament win came in 2011.
He was initially expected to make his comeback in 2016, but withdrew on the eve of his opening match as he wanted to give himself more time to rest ahead of the season-ending ATP Finals.
Having won the Swiss Indoors title in Basel for a ninth time on Sunday, there were fears that Federer would again skip the final ATP Masters 1000 event of the year.
However, he arrived in Paris on Tuesday ahead of his second-round clash against either Jo-Wilfried Tsonga or Milos Raonic on Wednesday.

“I prefer playing to training as long as I don’t take any risks ahead of the London Masters,” the 37-year-old said.
He added: “I feel like I’ve recovered well after last week. I feel good today (Tuesday).”
