Federer practicing in Dubai with upcoming American player

Roger Federer is on his way back to the tour.

After a long six months’ hiatus, when King Roger announced his retirement for the rest of the 2016 season, the Swiss seems to be well on course to a full comeback in 2017.

Roger is currently training in Dubai with world no.141 and American rising star Ernesto Escobedo. Federer seems to be in full form in a video posted on Instagram.

Roger also has practiced with Mackenzie McDonald, and he will make his first appearance at the upcoming Hopman Cup in Perth alongside an excited Belinda Bencic.

We are all looking forward to it.

Hitting partner for the day 🎾🎾
