Roger Federer will spend time with family before he returns to competitive action at the end of the month, it has been revealed.

Federer has had a busy calendar as of late competing in both the Australian Open and Match for Africa in Cape Town and said that he is always discussing ways to take time out to recoup.

He added that his plan up to now has always worked which is why he skipped certain tournaments to begin the year.

“Soon we will have a longer phase without a trip again,” Federer said, per Tennis Shot. “I am constantly discussing with Mirka how we can find the easiest solution for the children, and mostly that’s the best for my tennis.

“For some years now we have been able to bring in a little more stability. “We try to stay in one place with the family as long as possible. “That’s why I skipped the ATP Cup [in Australia] – so we could stay in Dubai longer.”
