Federer makes surprise career call


//

Roger Federer will play at the Madrid Open as part of his return to the clay court.

Organizers say the 20-time Grand Slam champion will participate in the tournament from May 3-12.

The 37-year-old Federer didn't play in clay tournaments for two seasons, but said he will be back this year as he prepares for his first French Open appearance since 2015.

“Federer is one of the best players of all time, it’s no secret,” the tournament director, Feliciano López, said in a statement.

“We are happy because his return to Madrid is a gift to the tournament, but above all the fans will be able to see a unique player in the Caja Mágica. Having the Swiss player back on clay with [Novak] Djokovic and Nadal is going to be unmissable.”

Federer is the second most successful player at the Madrid Open with three titles, behind five-time champion Rafael Nadal. Federer's last Madrid title came in 2012.

Nadal and top-ranked Novak Djokovic are also expected to play in Madrid this year.
