'I'm not coming back to play in the middle of nowhere,' said Roger Federer

After missing the previous 13 months due to a knee injury, Roger Federer is back in action, competing in Doha a few weeks ago and planning to enter a couple of tournaments on clay.

Roger won one match in Doha and wasted a match point against Nikoloz Basilashvili in the quarters to hit the exit door. The Swiss will play again on clay ahead of his beloved grass swing, hoping to get back at 100% by Wimbledon and chase the ninth All England Club crown.

In the recent interview, Roger admitted that he didn't make a comeback just to play in the second round at some lower-ranked tournaments, working hard on his game and seeking notable victories against the rivals from the top.

"I want to win big tournaments and beat the world's best players. I'm not coming back to play second rounds in the middle of nowhere. I feel like I know what I have to do to get there. It's part dream and part logic; it's a logical dream.

I'm working very hard even though I don't talk about it much. I hope people understand how hard I work; otherwise, I wouldn't have made it this far. I've never stopped playing for as long as I did after the double knee operation in 2020. Inactivity is difficult," Roger Federer said.
