Roger Federer Schedule 2020 – When is Federer Playing Next?

Roger Federer is a record 20-time Grand Slam champion and has some big tournaments lined-up in his 2020 schedule

Record Grand Slam holder, Roger Federer will have a lighter schedule this season and opted out of the ATP Cup earlier this year.

Unlike other seasons he chose to start his season by featuring in the Australian Open Grand Slam tournament.

He also withdrew from the ongoing Dubai Duty Tennis Championships due to a chest infection and will miss the French Open after undergoing knee surgery.

Federer should be back after the French Open with two more Grand Slams after that.
