Federer not sure about participating in the French Open

  Federer not sure about participating in the French Open World number one Roger Federer has revealed that he is not sure about whether he will participate in this year’s French Open, according to a report on the Express. The Swiss international had surgery on his knee in 2016 and has made a full recovery, winning the Australian Open and Rotterdam Open already in 2018. The 36-year-old missed the entire clay court season last year and he is seeing the benefits of it so far this year as his fitness seems to be in perfect condition. Federer has hinted that he may do the same thing again this year to avoid getting himself injured but has also stated that he is still thinking about whether to play or not. The clay court tournaments are favoured by Federer’s rival Rafael Nadal, who will be looking to wrestle back the number one spot from the veteran. Federer said: “I have to think twice, because there are also two pad changes. Last year I did not play a Grand Slam for the first time, even though I was fit.” “It looks like I’m going to play less on sand. But the decision will only be made after Indian Wells.” Federer will first play in the Indian Wells Masters in March and then make a decision about the French Open. He also turned down the opportunity to play in the Dubai Tennis Championship this week to attend the Laureus Sports Awards in Monte Carlo.

And Federer, speaking to Tennis Channel about his living arrangements for the Indian Wells-Miami double header, revealed his twin girls Myla and Charlene, and twin boys Leo and Lenny, had made a tidy profit from their business venture.

"So, we've rented a house [for Indian Wells] for many years now. We like it this way here," he said.

"We then stay in a hotel in Miami. You get used to certain routines, especially with the kids you like to know where their bedroom is ahead of time.
