Roger Federer: I’ll make clay court season decision after Miami
World number one Roger Federer says he is yet to make up his mind on whether or not he’ll play clay court season this year, but a decision is imminent.
Federer has skipped clay in recent years, often due to injury, but has been tipped to return this year.
However, Federer himself says that he still doesn’t know his intentions himself, and admits he may have to be selective about which tournaments he plays due to his age.
“I hope Miami is going to go well,” he said.
“After that, shortly after, I’ll decide what I’m going to do with the clay-court season.
“I don’t know how much more I’ve got left in me, but I’m enjoying my time right now at the top.
“I can’t believe I’m back to world number one and I’ve just had another fabulous start to the year so we’ll see what the year brings but I have to be selective in which tournaments I can and should play.
“But the feeling I get right now is I’m probably going to have another great season, so that’s a wonderful thing.”
