Despite being out for almost a year now, Tony Godsick is confident that his charge, Roger Federer, will be back and competing amongst the very best soon. The Swiss star has not played since last year’s Wimbledon, and all eyes are on him as he looks to make a hotly-anticipated comeback sometime later this year.
Roger Federer will make his return to tennis soon, says his long-time agent and business partner, Tony Godsick.
The 20-time Grand Slam champion has been out of tennis for almost a year.
His return date is yet to be determined, but he is setting his sights on the Laver Cup, which will take place during the last weekend of September.
“I think the Laver Cup could be, if that’s the first event that he’s back, a nice entryway back for him, because he’ll be surrounded by friends and comrades,” Godsick said to the i.
“Even if you’ve played tennis for so long like he has, coming back after a lay-off like that, it’s nice to have a little support.”

The last time Federer played was at the 2021 Wimbledon Championships, where he was bidding for a ninth title at the tournament.
He was stunned in straight sets by Hubert Hurkacz in the quarter-finals, losing 6-3 7-6 (7-4) 6-0 to the 14th seed.
“It’s super special for me,” said Hurkacz at the time.
“Playing here and the special things [Federer] has done here, it’s a dream come true.”
