Roger Federer hints that he’s ready to give French Open another crack next year
Roger Federer says he is likely to return to Roland Garros again next year after his quest for the French Open title was ended by Rafael Nadal on Friday.
The 37-year-old returned to the Paris showpiece this year for the first time since 2015 and generally impressed, even if it ended in a familiar fashion with defeat to his big rival.
Before the tournament, people speculated that Federer was returning to the tournament to say his goodbyes, but that doesn’t look like it;s the case.
“Next year, just like with any other tournament, we’ll see what happens,” said Federer.
“But I definitely enjoyed the clay court season and the French Open, so that would help the chances, I guess, to return.
“It’s not like it’s been a shocker. So from that standpoint, it’s okay.”
