Swiss tennis maestro Roger Federer has confirmed that he will make a return at next week’s Miami Open after recovering from knee surgery.
The 17-time Grand Slam champion on Thursday used a string of emojis on his Twitter handle to confirm that he was ready to resume, news.com.au reported.
Federer was expected to return to action in next month’s Monte Carlo Masters after undergoing surgery to repair a torn meniscus sustained the day after his semi-final defeat to Novak Djokovic at this year’s Australian Open.
However, his recovery from the surgery has been quicker than anticipated.
Due to the injury, Federer was forced to opt out of tournaments in Dubai, Rotterdam and Indian Wells.
