Swiss legend Roger Federer made a much-awaited return in Doha earlier this year after a gap of 13 months. On his return, Federer could only win one match and bowed out of the Quarter-Finals.
Federer mentioned that he is eyeing the Tokyo Olympics and Wimbledon this year. The Olympic Gold is the only coveted title eluding the Swiss’ glories.
