Federer to feature in French Open

Swiss tennis legend Roger Federer said yesterday that he will play the French Open in Paris next year.

“I will play the French Open. I probably won’t play much before that because I need some time away from it (tennis) and I need some time with the family,” the 38-year-old told CNN.

The 20-time Grand Slam champion returned to Roland Garros this year after a three year absence, falling to Rafael Nadal in the semifinals.

Federer confirmed he will compete at next year’s Tokyo Olympics after Wimbledon and prior to the US Open.

But his priority before the French Open which he has won only once in 2009 will be a family vacation.

“We need a vacation, we need a break, and especially if I am playing the Olympics and all that,” he said.

In Tokyo he will be in competition for a men’s singles gold medal, the only major prize he has yet to win.
