Roger Federer only played one tournament in 2020 after a knee operation curtailed his season. The Swiss had originally planned to launch his 2021 campaign at the Australian Open but a combination of draconian quarantine measures and lack of fitness put that plan to bed.
The Swiss will now be starting his season at an ATP 250 event in Doha and you can see his provisional schedule for 2021 below.
Roger Federer's Schedule for 2021
Here are the tournaments Federer will play this season. It is, of course, provisional and subject to change.
|8th – 13th March||Qatar ExxonMobil Open||Doha||28||ATP 250||Outdoor Hard (Plexicushion)|
|14th – 20th June||Noventi Open||Halle||32||ATP 500||Grass|
|28th June – 11th July||Wimbledon||London||128||Grand Slam||Grass|
|24th – 30th July||Olympic Games||Tokyo||28||Olympics||Outdoor Hard|
|30th August – 12th September||US Open||New York||128||Grand Slam||Outdoor Hard (Laykold)|
The Swiss originally planned to play to Dubai but withdrew after losing in the quarter-final of the Qatar Open. Instead, he will take part in a training block and a decision will be made as to whether he plays on clay or not. Any tournaments will be added here.
What about Madrid?
Federer was recently rumoured to be playing Madrid, this came after he was featured on the tournaments social media channels. This is a cynical ticket selling ploy that all the tournaments use.
An entry into a Masters 1000's is automatic as they're mandatory events, with Federer still ranked in the top 10, he's on the entry list until he says otherwise.
So is he playing Madrid? Maybe but it's not confirmed.
