WATCH: Roger Federer touches down in Madrid ahead of clay return
Roger Federer is all set for his return to clay-court action with the 20-times Grand Slam champion finally arriving ahead of the Madrid Open.
The 37-year-old has not competed on the red dirt since the 2016 season as he has opted to skip the clay events the past few years in order to keep himself fresh for the grass-court campaign.
However, he has decided he wants to have another go at Roland Garros this year and picked the Madrid Open as his warm-up event.
And if you were worried that that the Swiss Maestro might still not make it, then fear not, he is now in Madrid and there is a video to prove it.
LOOK. WHO’s. BACK. 😍 #MMOPEN
🇨🇭 @rogerfederer‘s in Madrid! We’ve really missed you Roger! 🤗
