Tennis season 2014 is on! As usual the new year has arrived to Australia some hours earlier than most of the remainder of the world and also as usual the new tennis season as a first Ausi flavor.
In this article we reproduce the first version of Roger Federer official schedule released by December the 28th in his official site and we can find some surprises there. The first is precisely at the beginning of the schedule: it will the RF first time at the Brisbane International (ATP 250) and he will be playing both single and doubles matches (pairing with Mahut – they have already won the first draw early on at the 31st December).
Federer will also be returning to Miami after its absence in 2013 and is committed to return to Basel (remember that Basel was a late addition to Roger schedule in 2013).
No trip to Rotterdam (present in the first 2013 schedule), to Hamburg or Gstaad are currently scheduled, places where Roger Federer ended up playing in last year’s season.
Will Federer build on the better end of 2013 season or will he keep the natural decline of an aging champion? And what will be the influence of the new couch (Stefan Edberg)? These are just some of many points of interest in an always exciting game.
