Roger Federer will kick off his clay-court campaign at the Geneva Open next month as he intensifies his preparations for the French Open (Roland Garros), the 39-year-old Swiss tweeted Sunday.
After missing more than a year after two knee surgeries, Federer returned to the tour at the Qatar Open last month, where he was defeated by Georgia's Nikoloz Basilashvili in the quarterfinals.
The 20-time Grand Slam winner withdrew from the tournament at that time in Dubai to train and prepare for further development.
The ATP 250 event in Geneva is slated to take place from 16 to 22 May, and the French Open starts in Paris on 30 May.
"Happy to let you know that I will play Geneva and Paris. Until then, I will use the time to train. Can't wait to play in Switzerland again," said Federer in his Twitter post.
