Roger Federer is making his highly anticipated return to the ATP Tour by making his debut in Geneva at the Gonet Geneva Open. The 39-year-old hasn’t competed since reaching the Qatar ExxonMobil Open quarter-finals in his first appearance since the 2020 Australian Open. He last played on clay at Roland Garros in 2019 and made his most recent appearance in Switzerland when he won the 2019 Swiss Indoors Basel.
The Geneva field also includes Top 30 stars Denis Shapovalov, Casper Ruud, Cristian Garin, and Fabio Fognini. Ruud has reached the semi-finals at his past three events (Monte-Carlo, Munich and Madrid) and has entered the Top 20 for the first time.
Note: The 2021 Gonet Geneva Open will be held behind closed doors due to COVID-19 precautions.
