Roger Federer confirms to enter the 2020 Roland Garros

The 38-year-old Roger Federer has oficially confirmed that he will compete in Grand Slam next year.

"I will play at Roland Garros 2020. Maybe, I will not play in many previous tournaments, because I need time to prepare the best. I need to rest, especially in case I play at the Olympics 2020", the 20th Grand Slam champion told CNN.

This year's Roland Garros marks the return of Federer after a three-year absence. "Express train" reached the semi-finals and lost to Nadal after three sets.

In the 18 times of this clay Grand Slam, the Swiss player has made it to the final five times, but only once crowned in 2009. Federer's record at Roland Garros is 70 wins, 17 losses.

A few days ago, Roger Federer also confirmed to attend the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo, Japan. At that time, he turned 39. This will be the last chance for Federer to complete "Career Golden Slam" (the champion of four Grand Slams and won the men's gold medal at Olympic Games) before retiring.

At the 2012 Olympics, FedEx missed the opportunity when it failed at the hands of Murray.
