Federer says 'no' to Miami

The Swiss prefers to start shooting in smaller tournaments before taking on big dates. "His muscles have deteriorated considerably," says his physical trainer.

Federer-says-'no'-to-Miami

Finally Roger Federer will not take part in the Miami Masters 1,000. The Swiss has decided to get off the tournament table, which starts on the 24th of this month. After being unemployed for a long time due to physical problems, he prefers to take filming in smaller tournaments such as Doha (day 8) or Dubai (day 15).

This is how the genius from Basel, who at 39 has "muscles with considerable deterioration" according to his physical trainer, Pierre Paganini, at Tages-Anzeiger, will not be able to defend the title won in 2019.

For now, Rafa Nadal and Novak Djokovic remain on the entry list of the Florida Masters 1,000, which this year will not be hosted by the Miami Dolphins stadium due to the public restrictions imposed by the pandemic. It remains to be seen whether they choose to continue despite the problems to travel to the United States.
