Federer To Compete In Dubai, Scene Of 100th Title
Swiss legend hasn't played since 30 January 2020
Federer, an eight-time Dubai champion, has undergone two right knee operations in the past 12 months and last played on 30 January 2020, when he lost to Novak Djokovic in the Australian Open semi-finals.
Two years ago, Federer beat Stefanos Tsitsipas 6-4, 6-4 in the 2019 Dubai final to claim his 100th tour-level title. He has a 53-6 match record at the Aviation Club in Dubai.
The 39-year-old Federer has won 1,242 matches and 103 titles during his legendary career. Only Jimmy Connors (1,274 match wins and 109 titles) has won more matches and titles in the Open Era (since April 1968).
