Roger Federer has announced his plans for 2013!

Mr. Federer has let us all know when we can expect to see him in action in 2013.  His schedule was released and it is as follows:

Australian Open

AMRO Tennis Tournament – Rotterdam, Netherlands

Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championship (Dubai)

BNP Paribas Open – Indian Wells, California (on my personal bucket list)

Madrid Open – Madrid, Spain

International BNI – Rome, Italy

French Open – Roland Garros

Gerry Weber Open – Halle, Germany


Rogers Cup – Montreal, Canada

Western and Southern Open – Cincinnati, Ohio

Shanghai Rolex Masters – Shanghai, China

BNP Masters – Paris

This of course does not include the obvious, US Open in Flushing Meadow, NY.

Glaring omissions are Miami (cannot say that I blame him!) and his hometown tournament in Basel, Switzerland (that could change).

I have on my own bucket list the desire to see Roger Federer play in person before he retires.  I think a trip to LA and then a quick trip up to Palm Springs to see him at Indian Wells would be perfect.  Anyhow, that is my dream!

Djokovic will be back and stronger than ever, Murray is coming, and Rafael Nadal is healing and should be back in time for Australian Open.  I am sure Roger and his team have given careful thought to this schedule, taking into account his age and family obligations, and I am looking forward to what Mr, Federer will bring to tennis in 2013!!
