Even though Roger has turned 41, it seems as if he still has some fuel left in him with regard to his career in professional tennis.
He has taken a long hiatus from the sport owing to his injury issues but he would be making his comeback anytime now.
When will Roger Federer be back on the court?

If all goes well he would also be playing his first ATP event for the first time in a couple of years in Basel. Due to his long hiatus of over two years, Federer has spent quite a bit of quality time with his friends and family and would definitely have no regrets pertaining to his lack of participation in tennis over the years.
He has mentioned several times before that he enjoys his time at home with his friends and family. He could also travel easily around the world since he did not have any prior commitments and could enjoy his free time. He sometimes felt that his schedule due to tennis would get very excessive and it would impact his children as well.
