The last event of the ATP Tour with Roger Federer's participation was last year's Australian Open, where he managed to push himself to the semi-finals before being beaten by Novak Djokovic in three sets. With 2020 tour being on hold because of the pandemic, the former world number one had announced he would go back to play in 2021.
The champion's come back will take place in a few weeks at the Qatar ExxonMobil Open in Doha, scheduled for March 8-13. Federer holds the record for victories in the tournament, having triumphed here on three occasions (2005, 2006 and 2011).
Last year the Russian Andrei Rublev won against Corentin Moutet, with the score of 6-2 7-6.

After the Doha round, King Roger's participation in the Dubai Tennis Championships cannot be ruled out, where he also boasts the record of successes (eight, between 2003 and 2019).
Great goals of the former world number one Wimbledon and Tokyo Games, events moved or canceled in 2020.
During his very long career, which officially began way back in 1998, the Swiss Roger Federer has achieved 1242 wins against only 271 defeats, with a success rate of over 80%. In singles he earned the beauty of almost 130 million dollars, second only to the Serbian Novak Djokovic (with 147 million).
Roger won 103 ATP titles and occupies the second position in this special ranking, still led by the American Jimmy Connors (109). With his 20 Grand Slam trophies, the Swiss is now forced to share his record with arch rival Rafael Nadal, who last October at Roland Garros marked his thirteenth seal on clay in Paris.
